My first tattoo. Done at Hammersmith Tattoo in London by Ruslan Moskin.
The flowers are African flowers called Gazanias and they represent my two adopted brothers who mean the world to me. And I got the elephant just because I love elephants :)
Took three hours (last hour hurt) but definitely worth the time and the pain! I love it!


“Dreamcatcher” done by Joe at Chronic Ink in Markham, Ontario.

The BEST artist ever! <3 He is amazing.. pays so much attention to detail and is so gentle. Apologizes every time I flinch at the pain like it’s his fault or something. If anyone is in Toronto, pay a visit to Chronic Ink.. their artists are amazing! Definitely worth the drive.


I just don’t understand how this happened. But here’s a picture of a lemon from my backyard


CSI: Iceman

Using a sensitive technique known as atomic force microscopy, a team studying the mummified remains of Ötzi the Iceman found the oldest intact blood cells ever confirmed. What’s more, they found a protein called fibrin, which means that the 5,300-year-old Ötzi, who died after some sort of violent altercation, didn’t expire immediately after being wounded. Whodunit?

While we may never get to the bottom of Ötzi’s case, these observations may help modern forensic investigators interpret damaged and ancient blood samples from today’s crime scenes.

(For what it’s worth, my money is on Ötzi being involved in a crystal mammoth deal that went south. It’s hard out there for an Iceman. Now would be a good time to cue “Regulate” by Warren G.)
