I am not sure if I have written about my tattoos and my love of being tattooed and wanting more tattoos before… did I mention that I love that I have tattoos and want more. Oh yeah, I really do. Really really do. In fact I hope that someday I will be fully covered, minus my face and rear end, but who knows? When that is the only real estate left I may be willing to sell it to an awesome tattoo design.
I have numerous tattoos and I love them all, some are aged and not the best quality, some are downright awesome, but all of them are a part of me and my story. And though you may think that tattoos have nothing to do with travel, many of my tattoos are inspired by my world travels. For something a little different today, I am going to share my tattoos. I figured it would be fitting considering my ‘Blog of the Week.’
Blog of the Week
Eva from The Tattoo Tourist, is a northern California girl just like me, and she has a love of travel and tattoos just like me! I feel like we are kindred spirits in many ways. Her articles are mainly about tattoos (if you are even thinking of getting a tattoo, make sure to check out her site first) but she also writes about music and her past travels in South America. It really is a must read… there is a meeting with a witch doctor, young stupid love, and lots of crazy mishaps!
When I told Eva that she was going to be my blog of the week she asked me to mention her work with P-Ink. Eva is the Northern California leader for www.p-ink.org which offers free tattoos for breast cancer survivors to cover their mastectomy scars.
Coming up in October (the weekend of the 10th to be exact), there will be a P.Ink Day. It is a their big “raise awareness” event of the year and will hopefully bring media attention and donations to help fund mastectomy tattoos for survivors for the rest of the year. From Eva, “It’s a great cause and I’m proud to be a part of it. I have been through it myself (that is how I tipped over the edge and became a straight up tattoo fiend!). I have 3 survivors paired with three awesome artists this year and I am pretty excited.” So make sure that you go to P.Ink and help in any way that you can!
Eva is one busy lady, on top of her work on her awesome blog and charitable work, she has another project that she just started with her friend Jennifer. I wanted to share it here, Mendo-licious is the place to go for all the recipes you could think of for edibles (where it is legal of course). Check it out!
