Timothy Hoyer! for viciouskittie- that's the other guy in Richmond. Alive Tattoo. Amy Black works there, too, I actually wanted her to work on me, but never got around to it. I think they might have moved or something, I couldn't find a website.You guys should try to go to a Bizarre Bazaar while you're in Richmond. It's a cute little arts and crafts market put on every 3 months, hosted by Chop Suey Books. Anyway, here are some close ups of the flowers and the back of my patchwork:

You can see that he tried to put the vines in the background by putting shadows around it. I didn't want him to cover up the vines at first, but then, halfway through, I changed my mind. He almost killed me for doing that, but I think he did a good job, considering I changed the plan after he started.

It hurt more the closer he got to my armpit...

Excuse my ashy elbow. I really like what Ricky (Ricky McGee, Anonymous Tattoo, Savannah GA- All of those guys are excellent artists, by the way- www.anonymoustattoo.com/ ) did around my elbow.
Here are some websites Tyson Arndt (centralia wa) www.tysontattoo.com   Jay's is www.jaychastain.com (it's empire tattoo in Asheville NC)  Atlas tattoo (Portland OR) www.atlastattoo.com   Absolute Art (richmond va) http://www.absolute-art-tattoo.com/

I looked (backwards) through to pg 36, I think. Whew! It's so nice to see so many tattooed people who aren't snobby about them. I should have lotioned up first, because my dry skin makes them look faded- oh well! Here are mine::

My pirate lady, who kind of looks like a trannie (her crotch bulges) , but who I love anyway.
My arm is a tribute to my Grandmother and also a cover up of my first tattoo (the vines in the background) and my first attempt at a tribute to her (the band beneath it)

I like to call this one, "Vagina Rose"- I knew it would kinda look like one before I got it, but I thought he would colour it differently. I decided to leave it, and now I kind of like it...
My arm is an unfinished patchwork quilt- people ask if it's barbed wire all of the time. No, it's NOT! The rose is one I got in Portland OR by my ex boyfriend. I thought he did a great job, considering it was only his 2nd attempt at a tattoo. He's gotten better, and tattoos in WA now. Each patch signifies something important to me, and I think that's my favorite one.

Got this one about a year ago, in Richmond VA. Hurt like hell, awesome artist, though- light handed and quick!

Just random things... I want to fill it in w/ a pirate ship and wind and waves, but it just hurts so damn much... I think I'm going to get another patch filled in next. Or flaming dreidels on my wrists. I can't wait until I get my X-mas bonus...

I had to keep resizing the pictures, so they aren't that good, but here it is::

I have a lot of crap in those bins under the tables. The lightbox my boyfriend just made for me is under the table to the right. I got that little rolling cart for $2 at a yard sale, bf made the table on the right for me.

I sew at the white table ( found it on the side of the road), I have to cover my machine to protect it from cat hair, my thread is on the wall above the desks, my record player is to the left, vintage magazines on the shelves above.

My binding machine and supplies on top shelves, under that(the black blur) is all of the paper scraps I've been bringing home from work. Fabric in the corner, fabric on cart, that's paint in the wire thing on my desk w/ crochet hooks in the utensil tray on top of the wire thing(yellow blur). Pens, pencils, and paintbrushes in the white things on the wall.

It's pretty blurry, but this corner is where I keep my cigar box collection(shelves on the right), the baskets on the floor hold clothes to be reconstructed & one has hook rug supplies in it, the peel-apart guy my boyfriend got when they were throwing it away at a school he worked at, books, fabric....

More crap on shelves (free at yardsale), my Mr.T Snoopy in the background, craft books, the dressform my friend found on the side of the road. I recovered it with some knit fabric using hot glue and I replaced the wingnuts on the inside, then it was good to go!
I hope you enjoyed the tour, sorry about the quality of the pictures!

64  $1 store plate racks... in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by meowari on: October 30, 2005 12:50:55 PM
I collect hats, and I've had mine in boxes for over a year, because I had no way to display them. I picked up a plate rack at the $1 store for some plates I wanted to hang up, but it didn't fit, so I got a vertical one and had this horizontal one left over. I thought I would try to hang my hats on it, and it worked! I went back and got a million more, and put them everywhere I had room!
Here's some with my hats on it:

Here's one I put on my fabric cart, there's another one on the other side:

Here's what the empty rack looks like:

She's not exactly crafty, but I've got to get her running before I even think about what I want her to look like. Due to lack of money (and soon bad weather),I have to wait until spring to work on her again.  Sad
Anyway, here she is:

66  eye-catching stationery ( kinda gross looking) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by meowari on: October 29, 2005 09:43:23 PM
I was inspired by all this rasterbation stuff I was seeing. First, I enlarged a picture from a book and ran it through the laminator at work. Then, I cut it into 6 pieces and stuck them down on a piece of black cardstock, leaving a 1/8" boarder around each piece. Then, I just made copies of that and glued it to blank cards I made out of scrap paper that is a little thinner than posterboard. Ta-dah! New stationery! Free new stationery!

67  Journal from work scraps in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by meowari on: October 28, 2005 08:30:44 PM
I made this journal for my sister mainly from stuff we usually throw away at work. The paper on the outside is some scrapbook paper that my mom didn't want, and the dental floss and rubber cement is my own. I read on here (I don't remember who wrote it, though) that someone used dental floss to bind the pages together, so I tried it, and it worked quite nicely. I put some rubber cement along the spine, closed it, put some clips on it to hold the pages together, propped it up against something, and let it dry. The pages are made up of scraps that had been trimmed off of bigger pages, and the cardstock for the front and back covers and spine was too small for us to use, and would have normally been trashed.
Here is the outside:

My sister's name is Gina, so I made a "G" out of copper wire and used rubber cement to glue it down.
Here is the inside:

I had leftover scrapbook paper, so I made a bookmark to go in it, with a holder.
Thanks for looking!

68  Cat Bed in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by meowari on: October 28, 2005 08:05:52 PM
This is my first time trying to post with a picture, so forgive me if it doesn't show up. It's a bed I made for my cat, Sasha, because I kept kicking her when I was asleep. I made it with some fabric I've had for several years and had never used. I stuffed it with batting and mismatched socks that I couldn't bear to throw away.
Here's my baby, waking up from a nap:

Here's the bed, without Sasha:
