More On The Tat

update: i went to tower tattoos this afternoon in order to give monet a note of thanks and monetary tip (she did not charge me what she should have, but artists are quirky that way. maybe my attitude or that i let her play with the tattoo or that i didn't show any pain or need to take a break or flinch...who knows?). i ended up with a circle of workers and customers surrounding me and oohing and ahhing today. the front counter guy who had initially checked the jpeg i sent over and told me we would have to simplify some of the detail had a grin that morphed shiteating with awe. and i'll say right here and now that monet blows away any of the work i had done at Slave To The Needle up in seattle.
and that outfit has an international reputation for excellence. the tats i had done there got the same response from other artists present on those dates. but monet's...well...perhaps she saw a challenge or an opportunity to stretch her wings. whatever, she is amazing and anyone who reads this and is thinking of getting ink, more ink, or rework on ink already done should make an appointment with her.

It's gorgeous! I'll definately see Monet when it's time to fix my back. Oh... and nice side shot of the bootie:)

It is tragic that such a fine artist is forced to work with such a...fuzzy...canvas.

Dearest SSM,

Yes, you do. I know. I've seen. do, she will, I might, you can't, she must, I could, you tried, she hoped, and I sat by drinking cold beer and hoping to regain a sense of purpose..or develop an all-encompasing itch to occupy myself.

where do i start? with the 'no way, i have a hard enough time with a needle-that'll-save-my-life"---or "cool, glad that my friend is happy and a good canvas".
Joel, you rock. It's proved by your Pogues and Richman CD's. I love you lots.

Do I type on the internet after drinking? no way! Just like you.

I wish my life had more daily Joel input.
