Inked

Just a random post today, want to share with you my daughter's latest venture. As you may know, Kali graduated from college last May with her Bachelors Degree in Art History. In addition to being an Elementary and Middle School Art Teacher, she also works for a local children's museum *and* is now apprenticing to be a tattoo artist!
She's a busy gal, I know!

Let me first state that I am not a big fan of tattoos, at least not on my body, and cringe every time she or her sisters get yet another one, but I do admire them for the art factor and am amazed at the talented tatt artists out there. Apparently, Kali is now one of them. *smile* (Yeah, this flyer shows her real name...shh...don't tell anyone..wink..)



Here's a pic of her own latest tattoos, a pin-up for each shoulder honoring each of her sisters.



And, lastly, here's a link to the tattoo shop blog, just in case you ever want to come visit the Sunshine State and leave with your own bit of ink!



P.S. In case you're wondering, no, I do not have any ink myself and no plans to do so. But, never say never, right?

Brad's been wanting a pinup tattoo but with my face (roll eyes). I told him last week he needs to have your daughter do the inking if we get to come visit. We could send her the info and pics and a deposit ahead of time to draw up and then she could do the tattoo when we got there. Wouldn't that be cool?!

Karla, that would be amazing!! Have Brad google "Sailor Jerry" style tattoos and pick a pose, style, etc that he likes and then she will customize it! We need to (finally) make this visit happen, my friend. xoxoxo

Hey, M ~

Love it - the pin-ups of B and L are amazing... and I'd love to see them up close and personal!

You shared Kristyn's newest venture with me the last time we met up for lunch... and I expressed then how much I'd love to have K tattoo me (to add to my 4 existing) - I'm still pondering what I'd like, and where, and will get in touch soon, I promise... :-)

Wow. I totally never want a Tattoo, but like you I find them intriguing what people are able to do with ink art. Glow in the dark tattoos are cool too.

Wow! Those are nice. She does great work.

I'm not a fan of tattoos for myself either, but also admire the art.

I wouldn't get a tattoo myself but some of them are really beautiful. I admire talented tattoo artists though.

Rapunzel said...
