On the morning of December 10th, 2011, I remained awake from the previous night determined to bear witness to the elusive total lunar eclipse which only showed it’s true colors every 3 years. I thought “I’m used to staying up into the wee hours of the night, why not do so this night and indulge in the beauty of the moon while the sun rises?” And I did just that. Here are some photos I managed to take. I don’t posses the creative capacity of capturing such wonders of the universe yet, but hope to continue to try as time goes on. Such wonderful colors in the morning hours.

This is a Thank You card I made for my surgeon, Dr. Randal Vecchione! He was an amazing doctor and even though I cried like a little baby during part of my surgery and during suture removal, he stick by me and made sure my finger healed up nicely. Thank you Dr. Vecchione. You are the best!!!!

So I recently got a new tattoo that I am really excited about :D
I have known what I wanted to get for a while and decided to do some research on some local tattoo artists who could match the dotwork tattoo style I was looking for. Luckily I was able to find someone in San Diego who was known for her dotwork and new tribal style work. I met Gemma Pariente at Full Circle Tattoo in San Diego.
I love it :) It is a wing-like tattoo and it reminds me that the sky is the limit. I initially designed it myself based off of a tattoo I saw in a book called “Black Tattoo Art” but I was open to having Gemma take a stab at the design. She ended up making a beautiful rendition of what I was looking for and I went ahead and got it done. She had a lot of good ideas and I ended up choosing this one.
I highly recommend Full Circle Tattoo and their artists there. Everyone was friendly and awesome and I will hopefully be going back to have another tattoo designed by Gemma in the future :)
