A new rose…

Just before Xmas Lee added a new rose to my “under construction” sleeve. It looks beautiful above the gorgeous daffodil and alongside the purple rose from the last session. Simply beautiful ❤️

Pili Pala…

Pili Pala is the Welsh word for butterfly. I love this beautiful word and I also love this beautiful tattoo that Lee has just created as part of ongoing work on a gorgeous floral sleeve. 

What do you think?

A Rose from my love …


Lee’s customer didn’t turn up for his appointment today. A Saturday is when Lee is always busy and so a ‘no-show’ is grim.  Lee is so laid back and trusting,  he never collects deposits when customers book in.  However, a cancellation  when you’re self- employed and the session isn’t then filled with a ‘walk-in’ it then becomes a day without pay, which is tough! If you think of it, it’s the same as the a salaried person going into work and being expected to sit at their desk all day without being paid for it. Not good huh? 

Never a man to waste a creative opportunity though Lee invited me down the studio for a bit more work on what is going to eventually become a 3/4 sleeve of flowers. 

I love my new rose and I love my new husband. Simple!
