About The Blog

In this blog are stories – conveyed through the written word and photographs – of tattoos and their people. Some subjects I know personally…others are strangers that I was crazy enough to approach and ask to share a bit of themselves with a total stranger. Who am I? A middle-aged (ouch) suburban homemaker who loves to explore and experience…

The idea for this endeavor came to me in late 2009, after completing the final leg of a spiritual trek…from a miniscule box full of closed minds and judgments to a wide open place where free spirits are honored and embraced. The outward expression of my shift was a tattoo…a work of art inked lovingly around my female curves by an artist – and man – of great depth. The invisible changes I experienced are too large in scope to articulate concisely. I do know that since busting out of the box, I am intensely curious about all of the people I used to dismiss as misinformed rebels and now view as evolved.

Join me on this journey where I will explore the motivations and meanings behind various tattoos and get a little glimpse inside the spirits of people that let their bodies become canvases for talented artists. Maybe I can shatter the stereotype once held by myself and still clung to by those who remain in boxes. And, maybe along the way through trial and error, I can become a better photographer…

  3. Thanks for writing about this. There’s a lot of solid tech info on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your web site. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs somewhat current, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a big job with this one. How do you do it?
