{ flying on my fancy } ~ austin area photographer

I've been wanting to get another tattoo for quite a while now. My last one is almost 2 years old, so I have been a very patient girl. Wednesday I woke up ready and set to get my fourth. As soon as I was out of work, I drove straight to the shop (I had already scheduled the appointment) and we began working on the sketch. The artist was awesome, he drew each bird to be a unique design for me, no tracing or using pictures online, they are exclusive to my shoulder. Truly, I am so pleased and love my new ink. Although, I admit, it's very hard to photograph one's own shoulder...maybe time to get that remote I am always thinking about buying. :)

In other happenings, this will be my last full weekend bartending. I have accepted a job in a new dental clinic and I am so excited. The girls are looking forward to normality and I have to say, I think my health will improve with better sleep habits and a better eating regime. I am so grateful for my fun stint in the service industry and I will continue to pick up some shifts to help make my financial ends meet, however the change coming in my life is welcome. So Monday I begin life back in the "real" work world. Wish me luck please and if you live in Austin...let me recommend an amazing new dental clinic! ;)

Love the tatoo...I'm a tattoo virgin but have always wanted one...I'm a wimp though and can't bring myself to do it. I've always wanted a butterfly or bird of some sort. Enjoy your new job...before becoming a SAHM I worked as an orthodontic assistant and LOVED working in peoples mouths...gross I know...but it was fun...not sure if I could do it again though...teenage boys have less than stellar oral hygiene, the downside of the field, LOL! Have a great weekend!

never have wanted a tattoo myself, actually, but I really do admire the artistic ink on others. this is beautiful!

Hey, we have family that moved to the Austin area. I'll be down there more often to visit with them, and would love to get together for a photography fun day if you'd be interested! Let me know.
