Started up on my sleeve today...
When I got there today, Tony was looking through a book of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art. He wanted a good scene to use as the background for this tattoo. I LOVE this piece of trees, mountains and waterfalls...
Smoke and waterfalls japanese style. Second part, moving towards my sleeve. Unhealed. And the tribal is an old sin.
"Monthly Weight Update" I wasn't actually planning to do any more of these this year. After my weight plateaued for two months straight. at 212, I figured I was about as low as I could go without changing something in my routine. Then the first week of January I dropped two pounds. I figured it had to do with the massive number of hours I worked after firing someone at work. But the next week I was still two pounds less than December. Then the third week of January I was down another pound. This past Monday, the day of the week I always weight myself to make sure I am not moving in the wrong direction, I was down yet another pound. So now I weight 208.

Second session of Sleeve Tattoo by Chad Leever of Revolution Tattoo in West Lafayette, IN
Stephen's Michigan sleeve, by Bart Bingham at NY Adorned. Includes a white-tailed deer, painted turtle (the official state reptile, and whom Stephen has named Gary), robins, petoskey stones, maple leaves, and apple blossoms. One more sitting left, which I think will add tart cherries up top? The auto-focus on my 50mm lens is broken and, well, my manual focusing skills are not awesome. But you get the point.
A date of Nasi Goreng & the 1st session for a sleeve tattoo. :-)
