I Just love Totoro and the cat bus is great....but i loved the lil dust bunnies hahaha they were so soft and fluffy yay.... but my favorite scene would be totoro in the tree with the umbrella.... or jumping over the garden ta help the seeds grow... BTW it's great ta know others who know of Totoro

I like the soot spites and they will be mixed in as well, the artist that started this piece is $160 an hour - which I do not always have $ for. I have Totoro in a tree so I can add all the characters peeking out from the tree. I do not plan on adding the human characters, I just like the creatures!

I hope this is OK, and if not i will remove the images. My Totoro love, tattoo, me and CatBus (you can see some of my collection in the back ground) and a Lego totoro my boyfriend made me.

To keep this on topic - look at the last pic - I have a wicca for one book! Smiley

OooOOOoOOoOOOo Tat time...Ya...I have both of my upper sleeves done by my my Favorite artist Johnna here shop is called Liquid Courage in Omaha NE.
 i love Celestial so in the middle is my first tat i got when i was 18 sun with a crescent moon and three stars in the middle of the sun...i dont opt for colour now that I've gotten that first tat done... so i go with blk/gry scale for the rest and last year i wanted a frame around it. A Celtic Tiger w a triquetra knot for a tail  Kneeling to a cauldron of life/magick (I'm Pisces if you can't tell LoL) then on the opposite side i have a tree with the element triangles and a serpent wrapped around each other and more celestial in blk/gry scale in the middle around my original.

Right birthdae sleeve...

I don't have a pic of my other yet but here's the one I'm getting on april 3rd.... And cost i pay $75 an hour I just have ta wait 6-7 months ta get into the chair... i think that price is damn decent considering everywhere else i go

this is going ta be wrapped around my right calve
all of my tat are ritual based/healing based/ like my left upper sleeve is a ankh with a pentagram for a base and two water serpents that wrap around the the back and knot up and in the middle of the ankh I have a baby meditating in a cave of chakra stones with all the zodiac signs surrounding it all
Oh and Tattoo magick everyone....for those of you who can get tatted Johnna specializes in tattoo magick and says that if you feel constant spacey and need constant grounding because you can never focus or am a procrastinator get pentacles tatted on the inside of your feet/heel area....But BOI OOH BOI DOES  IT HURT but they are sooo cute... IM a WHO hahhaa...

Blessed Bee everyonee

Oh I just adore the catbus and the soot sprites! I have a tribal that I designed after what I thought smoke out of a genie bottle looked like, with a red garnet in the center. It's in the small of my back, and boy is that hard to take a picture of yourself! And, it needs DESPERATLEY to be filled. I got it almost 10 years ago, so it's got some spots that aren't looking its greatest. I do have this one above my ankle. I got it about two years ago. I got pregnant not long after I got it, so watch for fertility signs as tattoos LOL Smiley

One of my tattoos .. Though it is not really pagan ...it is very symbolic to me... This is on my right thigh  ... yes the entire thigh from the hip to the knee

This represents the four living generations of women in my family.  I got it when my Grandmother was diagnosed with cancer and only given 3 months to live ... it is now 2 years later and she is still with us.  We know our time with her here is limited and every day is borrowed time.  Anyway ... the orchid represents me, the elephant represents my Mother, the butterflies are my daughter and Quan Yin represents my Grandmother (who is Buddhist)  The entire thing represents the strength and beauty and the love, wisdom and compassion, of the woman in my family ...past and present (and maybe someday ..the future)

Bright Blessings!

I had a draft horse and he was just a big puppy-literally, my mom taught him how to shake (BIG mistake!).  I never got hurt by him.  My paint was a cutie pie.  I loved her!    Even her name was cute: Brown Sugar.  She was constantly stepping on my feet, though.  The horse I had a problem with was the miniature horses!  It doesn't matter how far back I went every single miniature horse I've ever come across have kicked me!  I was kicked by my paint and it didn't hurt nearly as bad as the kicks from all the minis!  They have these sharp point hooves that they can just dig into you!  Ouch!

The problem with minis is that people treat them like pets and not like horses, so they learn bad manners very quickly.

Draft horses are usually very nice, and this one is too, he just gave me a big headbutt one time and man!  It also didn't take him long to learn the back command like everyone else.

My mare has never kicked or bitten me.  I have gotten my feet in the way a few times, but she's very sweet and gentle--except the time she got all herd bound and about ripped out my shoulder trying to get back into the field.  But we've worked on that.  Every so often she needs to remember that the human is in charge--I tell her because I pay the bills, I get to decide where we go.  She's good for the vet, farrier and loves small children and even noses the barn cat ever so gently whenever I'm cuddling him while standing by my horse.  I love my girl Smiley

I've never owned a horse myself, but when I was little, my parent's best friends had many a horses that we would go ride pretty often.  They had kids younger than us so some of them we suited just fine for us to ride.  It's been a long, long time since I saddled up!  A couple of weekends ago, my neighbor stopped by with his little girl's birthday present... my husband swears he said it was a miniature Clydesdale, I say a Shetland... Anyway, I'm sure you lady's have ridden bareback on a regular size horse, and that's pretty easy.  Get your big butt on a miniature bareback and you go to sliding ALL over that poor little thing! Cheesy

They managed to take a picture of me on it right as I thought I was about to slide off!  (I was inside working on an album for a friend who just had a baby, so I put the picture on the last page!  Grin )
