I got this done by Gwen Gersich at Formula Ink tattoo shop in Ft. Lauderdale. I’ve had the idea of getting a sugar skull for quite a while. I stumbled upon this tattoo shop after the LIGHTS! show at a venue next door. I went in and talked to the lady at the front desk. She told me she was does a special every march. Any tattoo fifty to one-hundred dollars! I then made an appointment right away and talked to her about how I wanted my tattoo(: About a week and a half later I got it done. Gwen did a beautiful job<3
Recently got my first tattoo. I wanted my first to be simple yet still hold meaning to me. I view them as my Warrior Stripes, something I have to fight for or earn for myself everyday. The first band represents the things that I want, and the second what I have to do get the things that I want. Ultimately, they are a reminder to me that I don’t want to be handed things in life, I want to work for what I desire, and I want to know that I earned it.
I got my tattoo at Tattoo & Co. in Miami, FL. It was done by the amazing Vincent Vazconez. He does amazing line work, and I couldn’t be happier with my first tattoo experience. I would recommend the shop to anyone, everyone there does outstanding work.
I gained no weight this past weekend, although I paid no attention to what I was eating. I’ve lost nearly 40 pounds this year, so a successful weekend is kind of a big deal. I was looking for something more impressive to post as my first “gratitude journal” entry, but I did literally nothing today. After working all weekend, a day off is absolutely necessary. I suppose that’s something else to be grateful for.
