Tattoo Tuesday: Lucky Charm

The Man gave me a tattoo for my birthday and it was made all the more special because of the artist it was done by.

Although I still went to the Trailer Trash Tattoo studio, it wasn’t Mimsy who tattooed me. It was good friend and newest member to the TT team Tilly Lace! Tilly has just started her apprenticeship with Mimsy although judging by the quality of her work, it won’t be long until she’s on the gun full time!

I am amazed at Tilly’s ability, this was only the sixth tattoo she’s ever done. SIXTH!! I couldn’t be happier with it and I’m so proud to have some of Tilly’s earliest art on my skin. Now when she becomes a famous artist I can brag like a total hipster.

I love how old school this tattoo is, it’s a version of some old Sailor Jerry flash. Except I changed one little thing. The original design had the word ‘luck’ but I changed it to ‘lucky’ because this tattoo isn’t for luck, it’s to remind me how lucky I already am!

Lucky to have The Man, lucky to have such wonderful family and friends, lucky to have such a great job that I enjoy so much, lucky to have my health, a roof over my head, food on the table, money in the bank. Lucky to be surrounded by so much love. Lucky that the most I have to complain about it the weather. Lucky to be planning an amazing holiday.

There’s just so much to be thankful for and this is a wonderful, constant reminder.

Tilly will be doing select basic flash designs at a reduced apprentice rate for a limited time only so get on in and get some history in the making before you miss out! Call 07 32746645 or email trailertrashtattoo@hotmail.com

A big birthday thank you to The Man from the luckiest girl in the world!
