Sweet Surrender Ink

Hello my mah-ve-lous dah-lings! Its Monday night and I am finally able to have a moment to myself to blog!!! I wish I had enough energy to blog everyday like I used to, but when I get home- it’s the last thing on my mind! And its crazy to think I havent blogged all week because I have been on the computer most of the time. So, what have I been doing? I have been promoting my butt off! More like my fingers with all the typing I have been doing!


I have been online-promoting the salon and trying to get people in the salon and so far-its been great! We have been having many specials and promos and been all over social media websites. I am sure a lot of people are sick of me posting, but its time to WERK!

All the promoting and hustle is paying off, I am happy to announce that the fabulous owners of Layla Glam Squad has promoted me to manager! I am so excited to be working some a group of talented stylists as well!

At Layla Glam Squad, we now have the Facebook page up and running- as well as Instagram so if you are in the local area, def check us out and stop  by and say hi!

Yesterday, I was able to check out the First Annual Tattoo Festival in Virginia Beach! It wasn’t as big as the one in Hampton that I attended in 2012, but it was still fun. I love everything about the tattooed culture- the energy is amazing and I get so inspired by the different styles of all these talented artists.


I picked up a few new inks from Eternal Ink- which I used earlier today! I love the pink and the purple!


I love picking up all the stickers and business cards from expos- especially tattoo artists. We are such a creative rare breed and I love to see how artists express themselves through their art.

I ended my night tonight by doing this tattoo on my friend Cori, I didn’t tattoo the big star in the middle, I tattooed the smaller ones and the cheetah print and I was excited to have a lil fun with color, seeing as all the other tattoos I have done, have been all black, some red and some graywash.


I created a new Instagram ( I know that makes 3 separate accounts) named: Sweetsurrenderink and it will feature nothing but my tattoo designs and tattoos that I am doing. So, make sure to follow!

I am exhausted and its time for me to go nighty night. So thanks for stopping by as always and see you again in the next post!


More tattoos and Convention coming up!

August is here already, which makes me excited because It is closer to my favorite month, September! Plus, the weather will start getting cooler and I love Autumn! This month has a few awesome things coming up, such as The First Annual Virginia Beach Tattoo Convention! I have been talking about this for a few months ever since I first found out about it!


I plan on going that Sunday since I am off work. I might get my knuckles tattooed possibly. That week is also going to be a Comicon in Hampton that Thursday and Friday. I really want to geek out and go and take the kiddos, but my schedule will be tight enough we wont be able to go.

I wasn’t feeling too well last week, but I did manage to get a little drawing in and some tattoo practice. Check it out:



Its about 1am and I need to go to bed! I hope you all have had a good monday! See ya in the next post!
