Talk About Hustle!

My bff is a tattoo artist. She has been for over twenty years. She’s also owned a few parlors and taught a few apprentices. About ten or so years back, Nikki had an aneurysm. It’s a miracle that she’s part of the two percent who survive. Earlier this year, she had another one. She said it reset her wires.

I’m not sure what ‘it’ did. I’m just glad, that by the Grace of God, she survived.

As a gift to my sister, she agreed to hook her up with a tattoo party. I came along for the ride…and also to start working on my commission pieces. I figured while Nikki slings ink webs, I could lay the first layer of pant on a few canvases.

I’m very excited about it.

So for a few hours we painted and inked as my sister and her friends sipped and ate. It was a fun time. My sister Charlene and all of her friends are lady firefighters. They’re tough! But when you touch that needle to skin, honey…wincing happens.

What a fun day! Art, music and my sister’s gourmet strawberries and cream cupcakes. YUM.
