Taking my Tattoo State Board Exam

I meant to write this blog last week when I took my exam, but I have been so busy at the shop drawing, cleaning and helping things to run smoothly that when I get home, I am exhausted! I did manage to make a video on taking my test, and you can watch it by clicking the video below! 

I was so nervous to take my exam, but this has been something I have wanted for more than 10 years and I finally feel as if I am ready to dive right into this world and get my feet wet. Even though I have tattooed for a bit, I have done simple pieces, or small bangers I should say, and permanent cosmetics, but I really want to push myself to do bigger pieces. I want to try my hand at different styles of tattooing and continue to work on my craft. 

I cannot express how proud I am that despite all my hardships, setbacks, ex-husbands and boyfriends,(lol) that I kept striving to pursue my goals. I didn't care how long it took, but I knew one way or another, I was going to be at this point. It just goes to show that no matter where you are in your life, or what has happened to you, that you can still climb out of the ashes from the fire and rise up to be the person you are meant to be. 

So, go out there and conquer your fears and just do it! Life is too short to not pursue your dreams! 

Thanks for reading and for stopping by! 

See you in the next video and post!
