For those of you in Melbourne and looking for a great tattooist you should check out Fox Body Art in Collingwood, I've now been there for 3 of my 4 tattoos and have seen Matto for 2 of them. I can tell you now that he will be doing all of the future tattoos that I get in Melbourne. He's laidback, cool and really easy to get along with.
I went to spend the last of the vouchers that I got for my birthday from 2 friends. How awesome is that? My friends know me so well that they know which tattooist in all of Melbourne (there are hundreds) to buy me vouchers for...and what better gift, I now carry both of these ladies with me every day. You guys rock...but you already knew that.
So...maybe I really am destined to be a pirate. It would put some weight behind my childhood nickname, Scallywag, bestowed upon me by my brother from infancy. Clearly I was born for this. My compass isn't to allay superstitions. Perhaps to guide me through unchartered waters. It is a representation of my love of travel. It is pretty, not commonly seen on non-sailor types and just aesthetically pleasing.
The pirate gig is looking pretty sweet though and this could make me a shoo in.
I could rock an eyepatch.
And a parrot.
