Arm and chest tattoo - Tattoowise
I know that some people think that the "see-thru" tattoo design is played out, but I have a legitimate reason for choosing this design idea and location. :-)
Several years ago I had a work injury which eventually required surgery. Fusing two of my vertebrae together, removing a couple discs, adding cadaver bone, etc. Despite the surgery being a success, I still experienced nerve damage which has left that shoulder essentially useless and always in pain.
Unfortunately internal injuries like that are a blessing and a curse. The "curse" part is because nobody knows how broken I really am in that area, so everyone thinks that I'm fine. This disability has affected my life in more ways than you can imagine, so I guess I just wanted something on the outside that shows how I feel on the inside.
So I opted for the see-thru design with torn / stressed muscles and a cracked collar bone underneath.
Thanks for reading. ;-)

"Monthly Weight Update" Another view. Feeling real good. Getting some clothes that fit, and aren't tent-like, has made a difference in my attitude as well. So, apparently my new eating habits are still providing me with less calories than I need to survive. We'll see where this levels off at, some point down the road.
"A Milestone" I usually do a weight update once a month, but.... The last two months I lost about 6 pounds in a month. For some reason, in the first nine days of this month, I lost 5 pounds, and as of yesterday morning I was 240. OK, 240.2, but close enough. That makes for 100 pounds lost in six months and seven days. So I thought I would record this occasion for posterity.
linework is done. Now a couple of sessions doing black fill work.

Day 33 - Well What can I say. What would our lives be without love? I can only Imagine one word. Unbearable! If I were to live for a thousand years I would still not give up the desire to love. Heartbreak. Would you give up the ability to love and be loved to not suffer heartbreak. I can not imagine anyone could say yes. As painful as one heartbreak can be, one moment of love can erase that forever! In our journey through life it is the one thing that can heal us from any wound and catch us from any fall. It keeps us warm when we are cold and is our saviour when we are alone. Its drives us to the edge of insanity and we jump over that precipice without a moments hesitation. It gives us wings. I cherish the day when I again wear that warm wonderful coat of LOVE. “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only ligh
