Always Be Prepared When Getting a Tattoo!

I just want to preface this story and say I'm completely satisfied with my tattoo, however, I also wish I had been more prepared before getting it, and unafraid to speak up, especially considering this artwork was going to be on my body for a lifetime. With that said, here is the story of my first tattoo: As a pre-teen and teen, I aways knew I wanted a tattoo and went through phases of what I would want. I'm glad I waited so long to actually get one though, because thinking back over all the things I used to want ... read more

Mon emily beetlejuice

Depuis mes 16 ans j'avais très envie d'un tatouage. ce qui m'a rebuté a cet age la c'est bien évidemment, le fait qu'a 16 ans on a normalement pas le droit de se faire tatouer car le corps n'a pas fini de se former. J'ai donc voulu attendre mes 18ans. Mais a 18 ans ( fausse excuse ?) je me suis dit qu'il fallait que je sois bien sur de moi, mal grès le fait que depuis deux ans j'en voulais un, donc que j'allais attendre 21 et qu'en attendant ces 21 ans j'allais me pencher sérieusement sur la question ... read more

Pain From Pearls

"No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow". - Mad Hatter I've mentioned, in previous experiences, that I suffer from Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia (FMS), for those who may not know, "is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown. Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons - the soft fibrous tissues in the body." (http://www.fmnetnews.com/pages/basics.html) What that means then, in short, is having FMS hurts. I spend most days in at least moderate pain. Other days the pain is so bad it's all I can do not to curl ... read more

We're All Mad Here

"Really, now you ask me," said Alice, very much confused, "I don't think-" "Then you shouldn't talk," said the Hatter. This piece of rudeness was more than Alice could bear: she got up in great disgust, and walked off: the Dormouse fell asleep instantly, and neither of the others took notice of her going, though she looked back once or twice, half hoping they would call after her: the last time she saw them, they were trying to put the Dormouse into the teapot." - from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll It was on a train through Belgium, ... read more

O, I've had such a dream...

"One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small but the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all, go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall..." I can't really tell you exactly where it started. I've always loved the Alice in Wonderland story. It became more poignant later in life as I began to experiment with substances that gave me altered versions of reality. The first tattoo I saw based on Alice in Wonderland was in a tattoo magazine, it was of the Caterpillar and it was based on the classic Alice drawings. I thought ... read more
