 Favorite tattoo: my aviatrix
Featured tattoo/location: shoulder cap
 Artist/shop/location of feature tattoo: Tiffany, formally of Rawhide Studios now at Laguana Beach
about your featured tattoo- is there a background story about why you chose it, or maybe a special meaning? I race airplanes, and I love flying so when I came in with the design idea, Tiffany drew the girl to look more like me 
2) Do you have any other tattoos? If so, what do you have and where? I have 16 all together, left foot-Polynesian tribal dolphin, right foot- Polynesian turtle, left calf-baby dragon, left hip-
Polynesian turtle with flower in ocean, right hip- Polynesian flower, left boob-gargoyle resting, left armband of ocean wave, right should cap-my aviatrix representing past airplane racer, left shoulder-gargoyle, right shoulder- fairy, and a black rose, middle lower back- celtic bat, middle of upper back-cupcake, left thigh-six shooter, right thigh- horseshoe, horse, and rose
3) Do you plan on getting more? yes
4)How do your family and friends feel about your tattoo(s)? Have you run into any adversity or negativity because of them? My parents were pretty open minded and yes I have ran into negativity because people associate tattoos with being wild, or not employable. 




5)What's the most interesting experience you've ever had in regards to your tattoos? I tend to get hit on by older men in their 60's.  Oh, Steve-O from Jackass and I have the same bat tattoo but what's funny at the time I got this, Jackass wasn't even known so I got the design off a pillow that a store sold
6) Any advice for those interested in getting tattooed but haven't gotten one yet? make sure it's something you really want and not so obvious as some employers do not allow tattoos so make sure it's in a spot that can be covered.  Do not get a person's name tattooed on you, unless it is one of your child's or someone who has passed away. 

7) What is your least favorite part of being tattooed? Do you have any stories/advice to people who are not tattooed? the outlining takes a long time, so once that is done, the rest is a piece of cake.

WANTABLE REVIEW



It is no secret that I love makeup. I have tried various other subscription boxes, and after a couple of months, I ended up canceling, because I really don't want to spend month on samples. I mean, you can go to sephora and get free samples.

This is where wantable.com is sooo very different.  After taking a style quiz, you are sent a box of full sized products.  Name brand, full sized products.  Sign me up, right?!?!

Tattoo Tuesday




Name or Alias: Molly Lovescoffee Age:24 Occupation: Home Healthcare Aide/Private Duty Nurse Age of first tattoo: 23 Favorite tattoo: My wrists Featured tattoo/location: Crimson Heart Designs Tattoo's & Piercings Artist/shop/location of feature tattoo: Same location, Darren Hose'
about your featured tattoo- is there a background story about why you chose it, or maybe a special meaning? I have struggled with body image since I was young.. I was either too heavy, too skinny, too dark, too ME. So choosing to have my manta "Perfectly Imperfect" tattooed on me only made sense... It was me finally affirming to myself that YES I truly believe these words I tell myself everyday enough to remind myself the rest of my life!
2) Do you have any other tattoos? If so, what do you have and where? I have a Hello Kitty head outline on my right shoulder in memory of my best friend who passed away a little over 5 years ago... It needs to be touched up. :)
3) Do you plan on getting more? YES! Absolutely. I will stop when my pulse does.
4) How do your family and friends feel about your tattoo(s)? Have you run into any adversity or negativity because of them? At first there were tears(seriously) some anger, some serious disapointment on my parents end. My mother's because I was too afraid to tell her for MONTHS, and my father because I was going against his belief system.
5)What's the most interesting experience you've ever had in regards to your tattoos? My kids! They love them! If I am wearing a shirt that shows my "kitty" as my daughter calls it she will sit and trace it with her fingers for as long as I can sit. Having the love from them and seeing the creativity they have inside them bursting out in the form of their own "tattoo's"(magic marker) warms my heart.
6) Any advice for those interested in getting tattooed but haven't gotten one yet? Research! You don't HAVE to be tattoo'd by the first person who says they are a artist.. Nor the 5th or 6th. Follow your instinct and make sure you are getting the best work you can! PLEASE don't go to a cheap person just so you can afford it right then.. If you want it bad enough... SAVE. It will still be wanted the same in a year if you REALLY want it!  

7) What is your least favorite part of being tattooed? Do you have any stories/advice to people who are not tattooed? I don't have any. My tattoo's are my therapy, closure, happiness, and my biggest vice. Yes I get the judgement... But anyone can get that for any reason. You can be the juiciest peach in the world... And someone will still hate peaches. <3
