Hopeless Dreamer

Even though my birthday is not until Sept 1st, I decided to treat myself to an early birthday present this past weekend!
Virginia Beach had their 2nd Annual Tattoo Fest, and of course, I had to go! I missed the tattoo expo in Hampton that was earlier this year, so I could not miss another one. I had a pretty good time, said hello to some of the artists I know, and ran into a few old friends. I missed the body paint contest that I wanted to see, but I found some pictures of it online which was pretty cool. I am glad that bodypainting is starting to become more popular here.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to get tattooed or not and had not planned on it. I was contemplating either getting a piercing or a tattoo. The artist who did my head tattoo was booked up, so I looked around and came across an artist from NY that specialized in lettering. I decided to get my knuckles done, which is ass-backwards for me to do it, considering I don’t even have sleeves yet, but oh well, I guess that is my way of rebelling hahaha.
I haven’t officially made my bucket list yet, but I know that one of the things on my list was to get a tattoo during a convention. I decided to get “HOPELESS DREAMER” across my knuckles, plus I needed to get something covered up. Here are some pics! IMG_6716IMG_6717IMG_6719IMG_6721IMG_6722IMG_6723
We decided on a carnival style lettering, which is my favorite and it is what we use for our LAHCIA STUDIOS logo. I wanted to have some color in it too, I didn’t want just black lettering, so I chose blue. Since the letters were one short on my pinky finger, I had him do a crescent moon and it turned out great!
I am not going to lie, knuckles HURT LIKE HELL!!!!!! What was I thinking???? hahaha It hurt more than my head tattoo, especially the pinky fingers. But, so worth it to me because it means a lot to me.
I think I am going to start treating myself to a tattoo on my birthday every year, well at least the bigger pieces. hahaha. I’ll be 31 this year, and I am actually very happy to be in my 30’s. I know there is so much that awaits for me and I am excited to see what it holds for me.
Well, I am off to go to the shop, I have tons to do! I hope you have a productive Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Décor and Fashion Inspiration

With 3 weeks left to pack up my house, I finally got a start on actually packing. I feel like a professional mover. I have moved soooo many times in my life, this has to be I believe the 35th time moving. I got a little sentimental packing last night as I was watching Christmas movies on Netflix, I know I know, like really? Why do I put myself through that torture? I LOVE Christmas, and while I am not one of those people who already has their tree up and decorated, I do listen to the christmas music already.

I cant wait to be moved into a new place to call my own. I am looking for a one bedroom or even a studio. I really don’t want to rent a room but I may not have a choice. I have no problems roomating (roomating? is that even a word? It is now!!!) , because I am an excellent roomate. hahahaha I cant wait to get settled, because I want to decorate!!!!

So, this post brings me to this years Christmas decoration inspiration post!! So, check out these photos below and get inspired to share the joy!








What girl doesn’t love furry boots, sweaters and scarves during the cold holiday season?? I spied some really cute furry boots at Target last night while I was getting boxes to pack and they are only $35, so when I can, I wanna snatch these up. I have been looking for a pair of fur boots with a decent sole and that are comfortable. Plus, these match my Coach purse that my mom gave me! There’s no way that I will pay more than $50 for a pair of boots right now.


Check out these other winter fashion looks!












I love wearing jeans, sweaters, flannels and boots and lets not forget warm, cozy socks! I am planning on making a coat. I was sketching the other day and this is what I came up with. What do you think?


Well, I am off to get more boxes and tape and keep packing. Plus, I have to post on craigslist household stuff I am selling. Happy Friday everyone!

Also, I just posted a new video on youtube yesterday where I talk about my head tattoo and what my tattoos mean to me!

Painting Sessions

Wednesday is here and pretty much gone seeing as it is already 7pm as I am sitting down to blog. I spent most of my day today with my brother Jeff and his girlfriend, looking for a new place to call home. Looking for a new place can be exhausting, but it will be nice when we find something and get settled. I cannot wait until I am able to purchase a house. A house to call my own. One day, I will.


I received an awesome package from my sis, Nique from Denver. We take turns sending little care packages whenever one of us are thinking of the other or when were going through a hard time. She is so thoughtful, I got this cute scarf above in the photo, along with relaxing bath salts, a white candle, 2 mini paintings, a journal, and a photo box. Of course, I had “You’ve Got Mail” playing in the background. hahaha (Don’t judge me)


I crammed in a painting session last night, I think I stayed up until 2am. The awesome thing about these projects I have been painting, is that I have to paint with my black light. Its really fun. I almost feel like I am in a bowling alley during midnight bowling. I felt like such the geeky artist last night painting, (not that I mind) I was reminded of She’s All That and Not Another Teen Movie…of Janie Briggs in the paint covered overalls/apron just imagine me….painting hahahaha That is soooo me right now! All I need is a hot guy to sweep me off my feet. hahaha



My workspace last night. I have brought my art space out to the living room and out of my cave, so that I can watch movies on my big tv.


This is what I have so far! Keep in mind, that this is just the first layer and details are yet to come! The first picture is with the lights on, and the second, with the black light. I am loving how it is coming together!



I finally arranged to pick up my screenprinting equipment today and I am picking up an inkjet printer tomorrow, and I cant wait!!!

As for our newest puppy, Jacob, he is just sooooo cute and has such a big personality. I just cant get enough of him!


He likes to nibble on my hair and ears. I cant wait to see how big he is gonna get, but for now, I am enjoying able to pick him up and hold him with one arm. hahahaha

I have more to get done, and I only stopped to take a break, which usually means stopping to work on something else. hahaha

I will leave with these thoughts tonight! Good night and see you in the next post!


You want a tattoo WHERE?

So, I gave a lil hint in my last post that I was going back to a color I had last year. In case you are still wondering, here is where I am getting my inspiration from all these gorgeous images off of Pintrest. Oh yea, and I might have told yall that I was going to grow out the shaved head part of my head, well, I just couldnt get past the awkward growing out stage, so that went out the window as well. Back to the half shaved head. hahaha

And you wanna know the latest idea that I have been obssessing about???? And youre gonna think I am totally nuts, but I dont care....yall know I wanna be a tattoo artist and ive been working on my portfolio to take to a tattoo shop, well, I am gonna book an appointment to get a very awesome piece done.....since I am keeping my shaved head, I have decided that I want to get the shaved part tattooed. Yep, you read that right...I want a head tattoo....and its cool because if I dont want anyone to see it, I can always flip my hair over or just grow it out. I am super excited, but I am still deciding what I want there....right now, I am thinking a deep red rose and my signature swirls around it...and some stars. I will have to brainstorm about it. Here are some inspiration images from Pintrest as well on Head Tattoos. What do you think???

So, um, yea....gonna do it. I dont know when, because the artist I want to do it is pretty booked, but I plan on making the appointment soon and then I can work on my portfolio. I am not gonna give up on getting a professional apprenticeship. Gotta fight for what you want!
