so ive kinda been MIA on here for almost a year……
I moved to Alsace, France, got married with my boyfriend of almost two years. Moved in to a super cute appartment , i have everything i could ever need… honestly.. i pass by things everyday that i know i could blog about but i dont. I also spend most weekends in Neufgrange; a town with a little over 1,000 people where my boyfriends parents live. I miss NYC terribly and sometimes wish i could go back, but i know i am just adjusting to a new smaller city. In Strasbourg, the city where we live there are maybe 200,000 people, but it has the most beautiful picturesque buildings and houses, it’s actually really well known for being beautiful.
While neglecting my tumblr for a few months I noticed that some “bad ink” blogs have taken pictures from my early work and started ranting about how im mutilating people’s skin (?????) While this would surely seem intimidating to someone who had no involvement in the tattoo world, I can actually see through the digital curtain of bulllshit. I might not be the best tattoo artist in the whole planet, but of my age group, I think i’m not too bad. It’s cool that you guys think im not tattooing to your standards. However assuming that writing anything that angry will get any sort of reaction out of me is just silly. I might be a teenager , but even so I understand that if I dont know much about something, I dont comment on it. My early tattoo work is there to show my progresss from the first six months, to now the two years that I will reach in october!! Not to pinpoint the tattoos you personally dont like and suggest i’m a “bad tattoo artist”.
To aspiring tattoo artists- I leave those comments as proof of the laughable shit you will have to put up with. I thank everyone who showers me with support aswell as everyone who sends me little hate mail. * HOWEVER* if this shit becomes some sort of stalker where-do-you-work/live sort of thing, i WILL notify tumblr/the police and make a pretty big stink about it, Or maybe i will just make it so comments have identification :/.
It’s one thing to hear about it when you are young but it’s another to actually be scared about getting Shot in nyc…..
