  1. Not working on medical leave. I have ataxia and slurring according to my dad and I fainted at work from med effects. Starting to get depressed from not working. My boyfriend came to my defense and said I wasn't slurring. He is the only person looking out for me, and we're not sexually active. - - - Updated - - - Not working on medical leave.

He is the only person looking out for me, and we're not sexually active. Edit: To make matters better, I have a hematoma or solid mass in my brain. No siblings called. But I have awesome friends.
  2. Alcohol based sanitizers will cut oils and dry rapidly. I like to use it before I handle my older books.
  3. I have a mix of oriential/traditional, and it's sort of hard to break away from that. I think those blend together well. I have appreciation for other types, but it's hard to do other sorts for me and have it make "sense," if that makes sense. It's hard for me to picture photorealistic tattoos blending in, or a B&G piece working well in the midst of things.
  4. Turns out I may be moving soon. Before I do so, I need repairs on a recently done tattoo as previously mentioned, but I really want the guy who's done a bunch of my tattoos to pick out one more tattoo to do before I leave the state. It would be a fun way to leave.
  5. That's a cool combination of the eagle/snake. And welcome.
  6. I'm not a fan of slang in general. I call them tattoos, done by a tattoo machine tipped with a needle filled with ink. I guess I say a tattoo is "done" instead of "tattooed." That's as "slang-y" as I get.
  7. Same reason people make poor nutritional choices. Same reason people dress like shit for their body type. Same reason people make any number of bad decisions every day. If only bad decisions stopped at terrible tattoos...
  8. The only episode of NY/LA Ink I've watched that sticks in my mind is the one with Anthony Bourdain, because I just love him. Perfect man who loves a good snail as much as I do. There's just something so hot about him.
  9. It's never made a lot of sense to me to put moisturizer on something that's healing. You moisturize to MAINTAIN healthy, unbroken skin, not to heal it. Using a little tea tree oil and just washing it with either antibacterial soap or vaginal wash has always worked fine and left bright, nice tattoos for me.
  10. I understand. I've put nothing but different types of flowers on my thighs and I'm sort of trying to figure out how to work in different pieces. I plan on working in a koi when I redo the little cherry blossom, but as far as deciding what else, I jump around. I know I want more petals on the right thigh. Those are ALL plans for the right thigh. The left is a bit trickier. I have some delphinium on my left inner thigh. I've thought about working a mouse in a bit of raspberry plant with berries and flower on the outer part. I also enjoy writing, so I thought it might be fun to put an old tyme typewriter with an anchor weighing it down... Sort of a fun abstraction. Just some ideas.
  11. My first tattoo a decade ago was on my thigh, one of those dinky college things. Now I have several tattoos, including two more medium-sized pieces on my thighs. It's absolutely one of my favorite places to tattoo, and I have plans in the future for more tattoos.
  12. Took my dad out to get ice cream. Two wins: Got the anti-social old man out of his house, AND got the scrawny old man to consume some calories. He ate all of his dipped cone and most of mine. (I can eat a lot, but I've never been able to pack away a lot of ice cream.)
  13. I think you'll have a very good experience as a person who isn't neurotypical getting a tattoo. It's a very focused thing, if that makes sense.
  14. The upcoming work is going to be "fixer upper" work - Fixing a small blow-out where a line needs to be thickened, adding some petals to another tattoo, and adding a koi to a cherry blossom as well as cleaning that piece up. No "new" work for awhile.
  15. I'm good on the fleshy parts, but where those little ridges of bone shoot out from the pelvic bone... Christ, that hurts.
