As you may have seen on my Instagram feed this past weekend we were at the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational. I’ll be sharing more photos and details about the convention in next week’s Tattoosday feature, so I’ll keep things short and sweet for now.
We were especially excited about this show since It was the first time we were able to show my bum/thigh piece we’ve been working on over the the past year and a half. Thanks to those squats and lunges at the gym over the past few weeks, I was finally comfortable revealing it as well! We went up against some stiff competition for Best Large Color and sadly didn’t win, but having this piece completed and on my body for the rest of my life is better than any award!
I’ll be writing a special post about this tattoo and of course sharing more photos so you can see the entire piece and all the little details. In the meantime here’s a quick snap from the hotel… and be nice Internet! Not only is this a very special piece to me, but it’s a pretty scary thing to reveal this much of yourself on the web!
Sunday evening was tough to pack up and say goodbye to everyone, but it was quite a relief to wiggle out of that pencil skirt, kick off the heels, and snuggle in with my fat little blob of love..
With the next few days off I’ll be putting a lot of hard work into the blog so now’s your time to get in your questions, suggestions, and comments about new posts. Some new features you can look forward to include Broke Girl Beauty – tips, tricks, and my favorite low budget beauty products, Baking/Cooking 101 – getting down to the basics for some of my beginner cooks and bakers, Mastering Power Tools – A series on how to use intimidating power tools for craft and home decor projects and most importantly.. using them safely! And last but not least, Recipes with Friends – Once a month I’ll choose a different friend to cook with and we’ll try their favorite recipe or a new one altogether. The whole process (good or bad) will be documented along with the recipe and instructions. I want to encourage you to do the same and share your experiences, masterpieces, and maybe even a disaster or two with me as well! I’ll be using a hashtag on Instagram and Twitter that you can tag your photos with and sharing my favorite ones each month!
I hope you’re all as excited as I am about the new posts and changes coming to Tattooed Martha! Have a creative and wonderful weekend! 😉
