There's a New Man in My Life

I am super excited to show you all the new addition to my left arm.  I have been quite excitable with the run up to my appointment with the one and only Paul Dobleman.  This guy is AMAZING!  I seriously, seriously mean it.  There has not been one piece of work from him which I have not liked.  So you can imagine how much I wanted to be tattooed by Paul.

I first came across Paul at The London Tattoo Convention two years ago.  When a friend I was there with got tattooed by Matt Howse who works at the same parlour as Paul; Spider Murphy's.  I myself subsequently also got tattooed by Matt last year when he kindly squeezed me in as I didn't get my act together to make an appointment.  They were super busy and I did push him back so I'm super grateful that he did that for me!

Coming home last night all wrapped up.

Here he is.....
He may have a girl in every port but when he's with me he's all mine!

This was Matt's work from last year's London Tattoo Convention

I seem to have a thing about tattooing on the back of my body, aside from my actual back.  First my ankle, then my neck and now my arm!  I'm not sure if I will be attending this years Convention but I'd sure love to go just to even catch this gorgeous lady...

Janet Fischietto - The 30's Circus Burlesque Lady 

Are you going to any Tattoo Conventions this year or have any ink coming up?  I always love discovering new artists.  I have a few more designs in mind on my list to have done at some point but not all of them are assigned to an artist as yet so suggestions are most welcome.

Toodles for now,

Roll VT - High Rockabilly 2012


So this was just posted and I had to share it with you all!  Especially since I didn't get to go this year and then I find that they made a promotional video from last year.  It's great as it's like a souvenir to me as it was my first year at High Rockabilly!  I love spotting people I know or who I have met.  You may even find a glimpse of me along the way.

Maybe I will be back there next year but for now the plan is to hopefully go to my first Rockabilly Rave for my birthday next year.  Now that will be exciting!

All That Glitters

I may well just be turning more girly by the month...  I'm finding myself in a whirlwind of shimmering glitter with no sight to an end at this precise moment.

It is oh so pretty though...

My latest paint job of Bio Sculpture Gel polish.
It's hard to see in the pic but they are so glittery and look so juicy!
Not sure what this one is called but how about... "There's no place like home"?

More Gel polish. "Prince" - to match the hair.
I'm having slight issues with hair dye transfers so matched up!

Home paint with regular polish of pink glitter with little hints of green flecks.

Oh, just to throw in a pair of shoes too.
Pink glitter jellies with peep-toes and bow!

Do you go for glitter?  I was always a high-shine solid coloured polish kinda girl but it seems times are a-changing.  You've gotta go where the wind takes you.  And if that is in the direction of glitter, so be it.  It's about time something sparkled in my life!

Shine bright like a diamond,
