Full Hearts. Full Coffee Cups.

March 1, 2011

This weekend I ran away from home for a few days and attended the Cigar City tattoo convention in Tampa. All in all it was a good time, I drank a lot of coffee and talked to a lot of the interesting and fun artists. I wandered around the downtown city of Ybor consuming coffee and window shopping. Coffee Coffee Coffee. I was looking through the book of an artist from Utah, and he had the cutest coffee tattoo stencil in his book. I told him I loved it, and he said he was really hoping to do it this weekend – so we did! I had to represent my love for coffee eventually.

I also had my Legend of Zelda tattoo started, I believe I had mentioned I was getting it but never got around to posting pictures of it. I was going to wait until it was finished, but im just too excited and need to share. They are crappy webcam pictures, but you get the general idea. It’s Princess Zelda holding a life fairy – I love how all her armor and stuff looks already, it will be amazing when its all colored in.

Magical!

 

I just want nerd tattoos from here on out, hah.

Lucky Luna.

November 19, 2010

So, I got anther tattoo. No big surprise there. It might be a little strange that its my second Sailor Moon tattoo in one month, and probably not my last.

Done by Jessica "Pooka" Herrera at Phat Joe's in Miami, Florida. She is an ULTRA babe.

 

Its Luna from Sailor Moon as a japanese Lucky Cat, with the sign for Venus in the coin. Venus is one of my favorite Sailor Scouts and her symbol is precious. It turned out better than I could imagine and since Pooka is a fellow nerd –  I cant wait to go back to her for more nerd tattoos!

 

 

Tattoo Snob

October 18, 2010

A few days ago I went to check one of my favorite blogs, Tattoo Snob, and saw that they featured some of my tattoos on there! This meant a lot to me since I pride myself in only having good tattoos, and being thoughtful in what I get, and getting it done well. They are so picky with what they post on their aptly named blog; which is whyI am both in love with their site, and flattered to have been a part of it. Go check out Tattoo Snob!

My First Time: Things I Love Thursday!

August 12, 2010

Things I Love Thursday is a popular blog trend. You pretty much use Thursdays to tell people what you like. I like things, and I also like sharing. So here is my little new contribution! I am excited to do this every Thursday. Im going to try and learn photoshop so i can do a better, numbered composition of the items. My dear friend San inspired me to do this!

1.  Final Fantasy 13: I love this game! I am a huge fan of the series and its always a fantastic day when a new one is about to come out. It’s more exciting than Christmas. To me, at least. I was ding really well in this game until I got stuck pretty bad, I got discouraged and put it down for a while and recently forced myself back into it and im glad I did. I love the characters in this so much! Fang and Sahz are the best.

2. Sloths: Sloths are cute. They dont even really make sense. I love them. Go to youtube and watch some Sloth videos and I bet they’ll be on YOUR  Things I Love Thursday.

3. Espresso Con Panna: Espresso and whipped cream. It’s simple and delicious, and with a little caramel or white chocolate on top, its pretty much a dessert. I work at a coffee shop and this is probably my favorite drink!

4. Saddle Shoes: I love black + white as a color combination and I always thought the 1950’s Saddle Shoes were super cute. Recently they have become trendy, I think, because I see them all over! Urban Outfitters and Vans both make a design that I love, and I wear my Vans soft leather Saddle Shoe all the time while im biking. Really retro and simple!

5. Yellow Eyeshadow:  Since I wear a of black, I like to wear lots of color in my makeup and nails. Yellow eyeshadow is both a little unconventional and loud. I get lot of looks and compliments when I wear it. I also think it looks good on all skin-tones.

6. Baby Blue Nail Polish: I really love light polish, and I have been wearing a lot of OPI “Havana Dreams” and its great. Its soft and still flashy.

7. Soft Pink Lips: If I decided to go heavy on my eye makeup I wear a really pigmented soft pink lipstick. Revlon “Gentlemen Prefer Pink” is great and long lasting.

8. Black “Super” Skinny Jeans: I think everyone should own a pair. Super flattering and a wardrobe staple. With Super skinnies I can tuck them into my boots without any bunching, or wear them with heels. They’re perfect. Just a little hard to take off.

9. High Messy Buns: I pretty much wear my hair like this all the time because its hot out, and im lazy. I just tease my hair out a little and throw it up high on my head, and throw on a headband or some bows. It looks like you tried, but you really didnt. At all.

Also, something else I love, a cute hobbit gets a Star Wars tattoo on LA Ink!

Dominic Monaghan played the Hobbit, Merry Brandybuck, in Lord of the Rings, and he is getting a Star Wars quote tattooed.  Pretty amazing!

Also, here he is in a music video with Megan Fox, who is also very popular in the geek world. And every other world:

Nerd Porn: Stars Wars and Evangelion

July 4, 2010

If you’re a guy, your eyes will probably go straight to her Star Wars fight scene near her baby-maker, but for me, it went straight to her Evangelion forearm tattoo. Evangelion is EASILY my favorite anime, and EASILY my favorite series of anything – ever. I cant even get started on how much I love it, but I love this girl and I am totally inspired (again) to get a Neon Genesis Evangelion tattoo myself. As if I didnt have enough tattoo ideas lined up already.

We salute you, lady.

Now, I stopped suggesting people watch Evangelion a long time ago, because it’s a bit of a mind freak and It takes a certain kind of person to really get into it and understand it. Although, I DO suggest you Wikipedia it, read up on it a bit, and see if it tickles you in any way. Here’s the gist:

“Evangelion is an apocalyptic mecha action series which revolves around the efforts by the paramilitary organization Nerv to fight monstrous beings called Angels, primarily using giant mecha called Evangelions which are piloted by select teenagers, one of whom is the primary protagonist.

Events in the series refer to Judeo-Christian symbols from the Book of Genesis and Biblical apocrypha among others.[6] Later episodes shift focus to psychoanalysis of the main characters, who display various emotional problems and mental illnesses;[7][8] the nature of existence and reality are questioned in a way that lets Evangelion be characterized as “postmodern fantasy

It’s well beyond any other “Giant Robot” anime – it’s a little heavy while touching on subjects of religion and mental illness, so while I feel everyone should give it a shot, it’s not for everybody, but it might be for you. If I can give this series one more fan, that’s good enough for me.
