Well, I'm not all that long home. This morning I woke up around six forty-five and thirty-two seconds, and was at the mechanics by 8am (after a casual ride around the local 'track'). It was surprisingly easy to get my new bike's (blue/silver Suzuki GS500 2003) green slip registration. I just had to sit around (playing with my v3x) and wait an hour for the guys to finish fixing up two cars. It then only took a couple minutes writing down some numbers from my baby and bam. $30 later I had my slips! Now I just need to find my fucking credit card so I can pay the $600 odd monnies for my god damn insurance (compulsory 3rd party, that is). Ripped off. Anybody wanna gimmie some money for sex? (I do anal).
I went and got me some Vitamins after that, thnx 2 Jon for helping me out. Check out the phone-pic to see what I got, they are specifically chosen to promote fast healing and a strong immune system. Let's see how they go! I may just get runny bowels from too much Vit. C. I'll keep you posted (hopefully with dirty toilet photos).
So fresh bottles of Vitamins, a tummy full of lovely veg wraps a can of mineral water and my hands on a keyboard - I'm putting the final touches (making outlines drawings, double checking size, etc) of my back tat. I decided to go with 000100 (#4, btw) of those a little bigger again. It was FUCKING hard to choose a location, I ended up giving the choice up to Trev and he choose under the hook holes. I had actually already decided on that too, contrary to Sash's wishes. Any how, the stencils were a bitch to get on but Trev did an awesome job. Right on the money.
It actually hurt a lot more than I was expecting, at least in parts. The outline is always the killer, magnums are where its at. I can't WAIT till I get the shading done. I'm going to book in the next 6hrs tomorrow, I'm guessing it will be around 2 months or so. I'm quite happy with Trev's work and it was the shit watching 'The Ripping Friends' dvd1 - if you don't know, its made by John K. the original creator of 'the Ren & Stimpy Show'. Sick, distorted, warped, crazy, funny shit. Check out the pics, like I said it'll look better with shading - right now its a bit of a mess. I hope the outlines heal up nice and quickly because I haven't slept much lately as is.
Well I just finished a meeting with a client, I'm making a new ebay checkout front end for *Bolt*. Cool guys, fun to hang with and always pay upfront (gotta love it). Check out an item listing UI that I made - it could have been a lot nicer however I was limited by the specs and macros of MarketWorks. I was happy none the less and they were hyped. I can't wait to redo the nav (its temporary until they get more categories).
Well, enjoy the photos for today. Most taken with studio digital, others with my 2mp razr v3x. Its a decent camera, just sloppy macro zooming!

The past 6 months have been very strange for me. In fact strange may be an understatement, fucking mind boggling crazy may be a better definition.
As many of you know I started my piercing apprenticeship at Wicked Ink under the teaching arms of Gary Smith nearly 8 months ago and have built a good reputation for my work and I truly love my work. At first in the shop I was really only doing a couple days a week on the counter and the overwhelmingly complex booking system. It was really really fun and still is, however I later found my self in the studio every day for weeks straight. Now, this by it self isn't that bad, but trying to run your own business at nights and finding enough sleep in between so that you can still function is hard work.
Anyhow, I've basically ground my self into a deep rut. I have had fuck all time for my friends, my business, my projects, my lovely girlfriend Juzzie, my health and most importantly my self. Fuck, I need to unwind occasionally and lately when ever I attempt to I just find my self dizzy.
I have taken myself to new extremes, as a person I have to admit I'm pretty astonished that I am str
