Yesterday was a very good day. I woke up at 8 a.m, had a coffee and got some work done, got up and prepared a package, went running, took a shower, and had dinner. I got everything done before 2 p.m and man did it feel good. At 1:30 I left for work and by 2 p.m I was working away at the ice cream shop I work part time at. The first four hours were an interesting time but after I got back from my break I hit a slow point in the night. I went from being all happy and fun to tired and a little hangry. I’m not going to lie I wasn’t sure I was going to bounce back. 

Somewhere around 7:30 I got back into the groove of things and it was mostly due to my coworkers making me laugh. It happened out of nowhere and I honestly wasn’t sure where it came from but I knew that I was happy again and that I felt good at the work place. My coworker and I are working around each other and throwing jokes back and forth. At some point I was making faces and noises and she was having a blast. Really when I get this way I am who I wish I could be 24/7. If I could be like that every day of my life I would be golden. 

Towards the end of my shift I have a customer come in and come up to the ice cream bar. I smile, greet him and wait. He tells me his order and I get it for him. I ask him if there is anything else I can get him. He replies no so I go ahead and start to ring him up. I tell him his order, he gives me a $20. With change in hand I start to hang it back to him, he looks at me and the money and replies "Does that come with your number?"

What?

You guys, I laughed. It was clever but I couldn’t believe this was happening. I smile at him at reply. "No. But you can give me your number, if you want?"

He reaches into his wallet and hands me his business card. I told him to have a good night and he left. I swear guys I am not sure why stuff like this happens but it does. Sometimes I have people throw their religion on me and other times I get numbers. Who would have thought?

I always think about my tattoos as a work of art. They not only represent my life but they also represent the things I have experience and been through. So for me it is not only therapeutic but also is a way for me to learn to love my body and myself. Every time I get a new tattoo on a new part of my body I can’t stop staring at it and smiling. Each new design is always better than the last and I honestly love that. One of the tattoos I got to help me out on loving my skin was a tattoo on my thigh. Front and center. For as long as I can remember I have always hated my thighs since they were so big and they stood out. Now that I have that tattoo I honestly feel good about my thighs. The art makes up for everything. 

 

Now in this instance my left forearm is pretty much getting replaced. 3/4ths of it is covered now and its awesome to see how far I have come with it. It’s beautiful and it makes me smile just to have it. Really it’s like I took my old forearm and replaced it with this one. 

 

I’m not sure if I will be fully covered by the time I am in my 30's or if I will only do certain sections but I can say that so far I love getting tattooed and I love that I am learning to love myself through all this artwork. Sometimes loving yourself isn’t just about taking care of your body, exercising, or taking care of your skin. Sometimes it’s also about what you do and how you see yourself that matters. For me I have always hated my skin and the way it looks on my body but, slowly I am learning that my skin and this artwork is precious and it is making me stand out as a person. I love every part of it and I can't wait for this whole forearm to be done so I can show others not only my childhood but also how much I love my skin/body.

The Hand Tattoo was a solid 8 on my 1-10 scale. But I say that after about an hour of being constantly needled. 

Yesterday I went and got the next part of my half sleeve done and as it turns out it is on my hand. The item that got tattooed on my hand is the clock from safe cracker. It’s a pretty simple design but it is also something that really stands out. The specific lettering, the way the arrows are placed, the little splash of color. All of it is in the design and if you’re not paying attention then it can get a little messy. Luckily he was paying attention and made sure to get in the finer details. 

 

The first thirty minutes the needle felt like a shot that I was getting administered...except that it was way more than a normal dosage of anything that is administered that way. From there it felt like a safety pin being dragged around my hand and into it but not enough to cut it open. After that it felt like sandpaper but a sharp stabbing mixed with it. Towards the end I was sure that my skin was getting cut open and I could tell that he was paying attention o m breathing. Somewhere in the middle of it all I just closed my eyes and focused on big breaths. That was all I could really do and I wanted it done. After a little over an hour I felt him look it over and while he was doing that I opened my eyes. 

 

Looking over I saw that it was amazing but I was still diluted from the pain so it took me a while to register how it really looks. Sitting her as I write this I am amazed at how well done it is. I am so happy with how it turned out and I couldn’t ask for anything better. Now onto the next one.

Hey yall. Some I got some new and exciting pieces for you guys. They are both owl themed but have different settings behind them. 

 
 

Yes these paintings are pretty light in terms of the colors I chose but I honestly love the change. I wasn’t expecting to have either of them turn out this way. In fact I had thought that the planets would both turn out darker then how they are now. Strangely that didn’t happen but I was still good with the end result. Either way these two new pieces are for sale and are ready to go to new homes. The don’t need anything except a picture hook. I wasn’t expecting to do owls but I can say that I highly enjoyed doing them and that I may do more in the future. 

 

Please email me at kairia.rocks@gmail.com if you are interested in these two pieces. I know there are some own lovers out there!
