Latest Tattoo

I totally forgot to post up a photo of my latest tattoo! It's a gramophone turning into a flower (a morning glory, one of my favourite flowers as a child) with swallows flying out of it, symbolising how carefree music makes me feel. I love what Joe did with my idea :)

On the way up to Spilled Ink I stopped at Blazing Salads to get us some vegan cookies. Never again. They were so bloomin' dry they tasted like chalk in my mouth! Imagine a flapjack with no moisture that sucks all the saliva out of your mouth... I think I'll have to stick to making my own in future.

I am going to go back to Joe in the New Year and get some leaves added around the base of the gramophone and some light blue and white clouds behind the birds. As well as a few small bits added to my chestpiece. Maybe I could bring in some homemade flapjacks to make up for the bad cookies! I've been wanting a Mexican archaeological inspired tattoo for a while now but I think I'll have to wait maybe until my birthday until I get that... or until I get a new job!

I still haven't had much luck on the job front. I did get an interview though, which went extremely well, but the competition is so fierce here for work that it unfortunately amounted to nothing. Hopefully I'll find something next year, and in the meantime I'm going to try get a few qualifications under my belt thanks to the free training that FAS provides.

This Christmas I'm heading back to Wales for a few days to spend some time with my father and catch up with old friends. Gerry still has a fractured paw and is on house arrest so my boyfriend is staying in Dublin with his folks this Christmas so he can look after him. I'm really looking forward to going back to Wales, I'll try take some photos and blog about the food I had over the festive period when I return. In the meantime... I hope everyone has a lovely Yuletide! :)


  1. I love the new tattoo and can't wait to see it with the new bits :) And home made cookies are always a better option!

    Have a lovely Christmas and I hope Gerry will be back on track soon!

  2. LOVE your new tattoo! It's so gorgeous.

    Best of luck with the job hunt and I hope that Gerry heals up soon. :)

  3. LOVE THAT TATTOO!!!! And sorry about that dry cookie. Yuk! Have a happy holiday, and hope Gerry feels better soon. Poor baby.

  4. Gorgeous ink, I love the colours. I'm definitely going to Joe soon!

    Have a wonderful holiday and get well soon to Gerry :)

  5. Thank you all for the compliments - and for the well wishes for the job and for Gerry! :D xxx

    Wrong Girl - if you do go to Joe, tell him I sent you! :D
