So It's been like 6 months since the last time I posted any new info, so I figured I might as well update this thing. Tattooing has absolutely become my life. It has become one of the most humbling, rewarding and frustrating experiences I've ever encountered. I knew going into it that it would be hard, but man. Every day you're figuring something out only to run into another hurdle. At times I want to pack up and quit, but then a tattoo comes along where everything goes perfect and folks, let me tell you, I've never experienced any feeling like it. That feeling makes all the headaches and frustration so worth while and makes me know that this is what I'm meant to do.
I'll be honest I had lost some of my passion for all forms of art, tattooing included. Particularly, over the last few months. I've just felt drained from constantly trying to put everything into everything, day in and day out. I dunno. I have just felt used up. Like I wake up on empty and go to sleep on fumes. But something in me changed tonight, I feel sort of creatively reborn. I forget that I'm only 23 and that I've only been doing this a year and a half. I get so caught up in why I'm not a billion times better than I am now. Then I realize I'm about a billion times better than I was a year ago and I'll be a billion times better a year from now. I know that I just need to keep my head down and really focus on every piece, be it canvas or skin. I need to remember to have fun with what I'm given and not be afraid of the challenges. Everything always works out. It's freaky how everything always works out.
Also one of my two very awesome bosses just got a page on here not to long ago. She does fantastic Color Pencil Portraits. Go show her some Love. stinaarmstrong.deviantart.com/
