catching up ...

Sorry for the lack of updates ... been working 6 days per week lately, and 1 day weekends are not conducive for getting stuff done :(  Instagram seems to be updated more than anything else, as it's so quick and easy!

Firstly ... Friday night I had my eyebrows re-tattooed by Deraly Fleming - this is a pic of the day after, bit puffy and shiny with tattoo balm - they're not so pretty today, day 2 (getting a bit scabby and gross!) ;)


I'm going back in a couple of weeks to get my eyeliner tattooed as well - my first time for eyeliner!!  I'm 40 in a few weeks, and while I'm not too concerned with wrinkles, I find the ones around my eyes do affect my eyeliner ... I used to be able to keep it on all day, but now I'm having difficulties!  So permanent eyeliner it is ;)

I'm also giving myself a birthday treat and getting my first body tattoo ... I've never wanted one before now (I'm not one to follow trends, as you know!), but I've decided that a couple of single ones are what I'm after.  You'll just have to wait to see what my first one will be!

I had one of my artworks made up into a phone case!  I had such a great reaction, I think I might have some other designs available for sale (not this one, as it was a commission) - what do you think?


I think this one would lend itself well ... I'm going to order one for myself, then put them in the shop ;)


I also finished my tapestry 'Goth Deathrock No. 4 - Anita' - I'll put more info on my main website, but here I am nearly finished!


Hmm, I think I've covered the last few weeks of my life!!  Oh, I have had extensions put in because I couldn't be bothered waiting for my 'goth mullet' to grow ;)


A month later, and I'm still loving it!!!

  1. What a great idea to make phone case of your art!
    The eyebrows looks fantastic! I would be a little scared of letting someone tatto my brows.

  2. The phone case artwork is cool! I have actually considered one day getting eyeliner done permanently when I am older, just have to make sure it's someone I can trust.

    1. Yes, that's the tricky part! When recommending the process to another friend in Sydney, she actually found the person who trained Deraly (the lady who does mine) - her name is Val Glover Hoven, and she has a very good reputation ;)
