Silver Liningness Sunday

Happy Sunday and welcome to this week's episode of Silver Lining Sunday!

I'm fresh from my lovely neice's wedding last night. Beautiful time it was. She is my oldest brother's oldest kid and so happens to be the only girl that my brothers and I have been able to spawn. Congratulations to the special couple!

And I can't leave without mentioning that this was tattoo week. It's been a fun experience from deciding to get one to finding a studio and getting it done.

There are some bad studios out there and some really ugly tattoos out there. I was very pleased with the studio and artist I found. I asked him how one becomes a tattoo artist. "Some people just buy a machine off of ebay...", he began. *shivers*

The kids finally went back to school on Thursday, so things have settled back into a cozy routine. I like a good sloth fest every now and then, but it can get old after a while.

With that, I also got back into the swing of the volunteer mom routine. It's nice to feel wanted... or maybe it's just that I'm cheap.

Some people just buy a machine off of Ebay? Scary. Very Scary. Your tattoo turned out lovely, so I'm going to venture a guess that your artist has some real training and experience.

Lovely picture of your niece - she got married in CO, I am assuming? And strapless? Wow - I think I'd have been in my ski clothes! HAHA

Seriously, best wishes for the newlyweds. I just love weddings.

did you wear a gown to the wedding that showed off your fresh ink?

I love the photo of your niece and her new husband. They look so happy. :-)

Tattoo machines off ebay...yikes! I did a lot of research before I got mine too. A couple friends had also had work done by the same artist so it helped that I could see some of her finish product and get recommendations from people I trust.

Tattoo equipment off of e-bay? What's next? Getting your piercing tools from a garage sale? Now I know where to go to start my next career.

I bet you are sorry/glad to see the little urchins finally head back to school. Holiday vacations can sometimes be too much of a good thing.
