Tattoo FEVER

My latest tattoo I got last september "Sweet Surrender" which I need to have finished

I love Tattoos. I love drawing them, looking at them, getting them and I hope to oneday to be a tattoo artist. Lately, Tattoos have been on my brain. Ive been watching INKMASTERS on tv and just been getting excited about learning how to tattoo. I dont know how to just yet. I had the chance to do a tattoo apprenticeship a year and a half ago, but I wasnt quite ready plus I needed to work first or at least have a trade (which is why I went to beauty school).

So, now that I have completed cosmetology school and have a full time job and freelancing, I am def getting focused back on Tattoos. I am sooooo itchin to get new ink too. Its been too long since last september since I got my lettering on my chest. I plan on getting more added soon once finances are a lil bit better. hahaha I only have 6 tattoos right now, but I plan on being fully sleeved and side pices and maybe some leg pieces too.

Here are my tats so far..they seem so random and I guess they are, but thats how it is.

My nautical stars symbolizes "coming home" one red and one blue for my Two children
My falling stars and "strength" tattoos
My mermaid tattoo, I want to get this one redone..covered but I want a better mermaid
Today during lunch, I went to Barnes and Nobles for a starbucks (which I had their marble mocha macchiato, which was yummy) and a bagel with cream cheese and picked up my 2 favorite tattoo magazines. I havent had a chance to read them just yet since I am catching up on Project Runway and Walking Dead episodes....hahaha but I wanted to share what I am reading to my readers!

I love this magazine. I love the way the photography is presented and their articles are well written. Just love it. I read them over and over all the time. You should pick up a copy! You wont be disappointed!

I like Rebel Ink too because they show fellow tattoo artists and I love reading how each of them started and seeing their craft. Its very inspirational.

In just a couple weeks, I will be attending my first Tattoo expo in Hampton Va. I had planned on going to one last year in Richmond, but a body painting job came up and opted to get my paint on instead. I am hoping to have fun and maybe look into buying some equipment. I cant wait to see the car show, the people and just everything!

If you are in the area, you should def come and check it out! Ill be there and of course Ill be taking pics and possibly Ill do a vlog on it! So keep your eyes open!

Thanks for stopping by! Itching for ink, Cecilia Marie
