Penny, I sure could use these pens for my Thank You cards I will be writing. My husband has an aortic aneurysm and will be having open heart surgery on Jan 6th. We are both scared but we also know that God will take care of him and be with the doctor as he operates on him. Our friends, family and coworkers have come together to do a fund raiser for our financials. We are truly blessed with wonderful friends. I would love these pens to send cards. My handwriting is horrible. I check your site every day to see what new stuff you have and really enjoy it. Thanks and you are a blessing!!

CONGRATULATIONS SUSAN!!!! I’m so thrilled to be sending these to you….I’ve sent you a private email inquiring which pen set you would like to be sent with your pen holder!!!

Out With the Old.....

As we wind down 2010, and look ahead to 2011, I wanted to take care of one of my several loose ends from the past year.



Back in July, I met a guy named John on the D train. He had tattooed arms and we chatted a bit. He said he'd send me photos and he did a few weeks later.



I never posted the photos because the resolution was low, and when I tried to increase the size, they blurred. I was going to include these in the Christmas housecleaning post, but the work is just too good.



So hear you have them, small photos, but recognizably amazing:









I mean, what is there to say? This work is quite excellent. The koi, the tiger, the sailing ship, sugar skull, nautical stars - it's all quite a body of work!



The artist is Nacho, who appeared once before on the blog here. You can check out Nacho's work here. in New York, he tattoos out of Studio Enigma on Avenue U.



Thanks to John for sharing these amazing tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!



And thanks to all of our fans and contributors for making 2010 a successful year of inkspotting!

Summing up 2010

 It was a year with many changes but my life is still the same and if i feel calm and peaceful,means i'm ok,so i can't complain....everything is under control.
 This year:
- i broke up with my italian (sicilian) boyfriend but we are still good friends and we are ready anytime to help each other.I really appreciate this and his care for me.He was always good with me so i don't care what people speak against him.Ti voglio bene Tonino!!



-i met and started relation with saudi guy,it was a great time with him,i'm happy i met a special guy like him,i wish he will not dissapoint me again but right now i have doubts about our future.




-i lost my best friend (she moved to other country).I think i should thank God for this gift because as i can see,it's hard to have  a true friend.Ufff i can't believe all the beautiful things from my life have started to finish.



-i visited several interesting places,i really had fun in my vacations..




-i lost my grandpa ,this was a big loss :(...i still can't recover from it


-i forgot to mention so many great friends i met in facebook and youtube,i'm so happy to have you in my life

A Bright Spot in December: A Phoenix and a Pin-Up

As one would expect, inkspotting is tough during December. Here we are at the end of the month, and I have only interviewed three people since the 1st. There were a few times over the summer when I interviewed three contributors during my lunch hour!



The last person whose work I photographed was Megan, who I found upstairs at the Penn Plaza Borders store.



Megan has seventeen tattoos, but it was this one that caught my eye:





This is a phoenix, of course, but fewer people may recognize it as Fawkes, the phoenix of Professor Albus Dumbledore, in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.





The artwork is based on the illustration by Jason Cockcroft on the cover of the UK edition of the aforementioned book.





The tattooist Jamie Nichols at Gargoyle Tattoo in Aberdeen, Washington, completed this piece in about eight hours over two sittings.



Megan also has this pinup on her upper left arm:





The use of negative space for the bombs is pretty cool.



Marcus was the artist at Gargoyle that Megan credited for creating this piece..



Thanks to Megan for taking the time to speak to me about her cool tattoos!

Rest in peace Grandpa :(



   On 26 december,22:00 o'clock my grandpa passed away after his stomach or his intestin exploded.I didn't expected that everything will happen so fast because he felt better after he took the holy communion and he started to eat liquids.I gave him soup and orange juice with the syringe and i was happy for every swallow he takes because i knew if he stops eating ,he does not have any chance to survive.
 With 2 hours ago before him to die he had so strong convulsions,all his body was shaking without control.I thought he will die but he calmed down and he felt asleep holding my mum's hand.
 She felt asleep too,i was at PC and i suddenly heard a bang...I couldn't understand where did come from because in the house nothing was moving so i thought maybe it's from my neighbours.I thought at my grandpa too but i looked at him and i didn't see anything strange (i had light just from the candle and PC).After 10 minutes my mum suddenly woke up and instinctively put her hand on my grandpa to see if he still breaths even though she didn't think or expect him to die in that day.When she screamed : "He doesn't breath anymore" i got panic and immediately i remembered about that strange sound and i realised it was him.When i opened the light i saw blood flowing from his mouth...i couldn't believe that sound was from his body even though we expected that he might do intestinal occlusion because since 1 week and a half he did not go to toilet ( i mean pampers).No medicament could do anything for him,to eliberate his stomach..from this problem,he made other complications.
 He was sick of Alzheimer ,Alzheimer is a form of dementia but their death is caused by other disease,complications made by it.For exemple,they forget to go to toilet or how to do it because they lose their logic.People with this disease may have trouble remembering things that happened recently or names of people they know. Over time, symptoms get worse. People may not recognize family members or have trouble speaking, reading or writing. They may forget how to brush their teeth or comb their hair.
 In his last 4 years,he didn't know that i was his nephew and my mum was his daughter,he thought she is his wife.He was speaking with us but without to know who we are for real.They forget everything in 2 minutes,even when my grandma was dead,he realised she died just when he was seeing her but after he moved to other room,he was singing and acting normal.When he returned back to her dead body,he got shocked and threw down his hat..
 Since he got sick, all his life was a confussion,he didn't  know where he was or who we are.
 Many times he has stolen my money from my bag and hide them in his socks...he was like a kid and when i've reproved him ,he was so sure that those are his money and put his head down,sad because of my accusation and because i made him this "injustice"(to take his money).
 Almost every week he was flooding the balcony because he used to water so many times the flowers until the water flowed from the flower pot and all the balcony filled up with water.
 It was a hard time for my parents but funny and nice for me because i am a too calm person and i really can't get mad in serious for an innocent person.
 After he died,they regret now every moment when they got mad with him but unfortunetely now it's too late.
 We had so many strange dreams and signs before him to die and my dog cried so much with 1 hour before...

 Rest in peace my dear grandpa,i will never forget you(the person before to get sick) and the person after you got sick because are 2 different persons for me.
 I will also never forget your little hand with cut fingers :(

P.S : the picture is taken with few hours before him to die

Two-for-Tattoosday, Brazilian-Style

Sometimes, due to a) a language barrier and b) the passage of time, we're not always able to give you the most in-depth story about our subjects' tattoos.



Such is the case with Celso and Reginaldo, who I met back in September outside of Madison Square Garden.



Both gentlemen were visiting from São Paolo, Brazil and one of Celso's tattoos caught my eye:





That was on his right arm. He also had this one on his left arm:





Celso's friend Reginaldo pulled his shirt off so I could get the full view of his koi tattoo:





Celso credited Artur at True Love Tattoo in São Paolo for inking his dragon and his mermaid.



Artur also was the artists who did Reginaldo's koi.



Thanks to Celso and Reginaldo for sharing their tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Merry Christmas……and Hydrangia…. ;)

Hey Everyone…..I hope you are all enjoying a WONDERFUL Christmas with your family and friends!!!!!  We have had a very nice and low key celebration and I’ve had some time to play with paper and create a few things I thought I would share with you…..

So the first thing I would like to share is a new flower design I’ve created…..I was challenged by a friend named Caroline to come up with a Hydrangea flower…..so I took her up on it…here’s what I came up with…..

PDC Hydrangea Flower Tutorial 12-25-2010

I so hope you liked it……and if so and you would like to have the cut file…you can find it below……

I also needed a few money cards for Christmas gifts we gave this year…….I wanted to make them different then you normally see……so I thought I would share my creations with you along with the cut files if any of you may be interested for next year??????  I have had A LOT of fun making these and will be working up more in the future for different occassions……

This first design is the one I made for my two boys……..While making all of these I really utilized my Cri-Kit Embossing Tip/Holder and my Cri-Kit Pens/Holder they worked SO AWESOME!!!  I also am THRILLED to say that I created ALL OF THESE in MTC solely!!!!  I was super excited about that being able to completely create from start to finish a project!!!!

After drawing out the text I used the Cri-Kit Pens to color the insides of the fonts…..OMG…their pens flow SO SMOOTHLY!!!!  Colored in like butter and was relaxing to do!!!!!  What’s so COOL is I drew the font out then cut extremely close to the font around so if I didn’t want to use a background to them I didn’t have to….I’ll be doing this A LOT more often in the future……

Don’t forget……….if you get hooked on the on the Cri-Kit Pens and want some for yourself or even their Cri-Kit embossing tool…….you can still get 10% off your order of $30.00 or more if you use COUPON CODE  penny10 …..I think this is SUCH an awesome idea!!!!!!!  And I’m SO honored to be able to share that with you!!!!

Ok….That’s it for me tonight……getting ready to go watch a movie with the family!!!  THANK YOU ALL so much for stopping by to visit with me!!!! I pray you all have a VERY Blessed Sunday!!!! THANK YOU so much for stopping by….I do hope you will come by again……Until then…..
