Update!

  well, howdy my fellow internet friends! Its been a while and took a break longer then I thought but I needed it. Last week was kinda tough for me and I just didnt have the energy to post. I've been drawing again non stop and tattooed tom again Friday. Had a great day off and hung out with my bunnies, Kelly Anne and Miss Xanadue Julie. We had a great slumber party, I wish Kelly Anne lived closer so we could hang out all the time. i love my ladies :) 
Here are some drawings I have been up too. A cute little 70's owl and then later I added a moth that I tattooed on Tom. 


Our ritual Friday tattoo session went super great. I am feeling sooo much better, feeling super confident and I can see that I am getting better. I have a ways to go until I can take clients but this has been the best one yet. I loved tattooing it and I am beyond thrilled at how it came out! But is aint easy. Anyone who says learning to tattoo is easy, is lying. Its tough stuff. Really, it is. You have to be able to have thick skin, be able to pick yourself up and get back on your feet and keep going. I am so happy with this adventure im going on. Its tough but like they say "what is doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. 

Not sure if I will update later this week. I am wrapping up a drawing for a friend and then starting another one for another friend too. Ill share as soon as I can! Have a great week!!

  3. the owl is my favourite - i would love a fox in the same style!!!

    i always say anyone who says being tattooed doesn't hurt is lying, so i'm glad to know it goes both ways. lol

    they already look better than at least two of my tattoos - keep going!

  5. I can't even begin to imagine what kind of pressure goes along with giving someone a tattoo. You are doing awesome! Love, love, love the colors on the owl & moth.

    Keep up the hard work, it'll be totally worth it.

  12. Your art work is so beautiful CB - I wish I had half your talent. Its so exciting to see you getting more confident with your tattoo skills :D

  13. I'm so pleased you're working through it all. You're awesome sweetie, and it'll all be worth it, your art is fantastic, and seeing the tattoos you've already done you can already see you getting more and more confident with each one, they really do look impressive honey (and I'm NOT just saying that as your friend).
    I hope you manage some downtime too with Tom & your family as I know how important it is to you; you'll get there, and I think perhaps sooner than you think (from what I can see). Much love, and support, as always xox
