So … that beautiful pink rose which Lee added to my floral band a couple of weeks ago left a naked space on my arm and the glowing whiteness kept catching my eye. Truly it was simply begging for some colour.
Therefore, on a quiet drizzly morning, it was a little trip to our studio to say goodbye to that particular patch of white skin forever. It was also a good opportunity to browse my favourite tattoo mag ‘Skin Deep’ and seek out some inspiration for a spectacular back piece that is in the contemplation stage. Am thinking peacocks …
In the meantime I guess it’s true … roses really do grow on you!
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!
