TEN YEARS GONE

Hello friends. I hope you and yours had a lovely holidays. The end of 2012 marks many things, but also my ten year anniversary of living in this beautiful place. January so far has been so busy! So many new projects for you to check out. Also, I am booking into April/May right now so if you want to schedule something before the sun comes out, get in touch with me. If I owe you an email, I am so sorry for my negligence. I have trouble hanging with every email that comes through and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Feel free to send me a follow up email and nag me a bit.

Anyways, happy new year.

LEAVES FALLING

heeeeyyyyooooo,

Wow, I just spend soooo long making you guys a new blog post and then wordpress somehow lost it. Damn. Lucky for you, I am sick in bed so I guess have time to redo it.

Hi and happy fall. I know I always say, “I’ve been so busy lately…” but I really have been SO BUSY lately. October went by so fast! As some of you may have noticed, I cancelled my tattoo facebook page. I just wasn’t using it for tattoos anymore now that I have the blog. Plus, I’m on the instagram now too (missymissylady) which is a great way to keep up with happenings. In any case, I still have a page. http://www.facebook.com/alenachuntattoo. Like, share, etc. Thank you.

I really really really really want pictures of your healed tattoos. Please send them to me or stop into the shop! It is really important.

Ok, enough talk.

Here’s some photos.

 

 

 

more like this please.

This piece is based on an original painting by the lovely Lindsey Carr. More like this please!

You know whats really exciting? BASKETBALL SEASON

 

 

rainy day drawings. I’m pretty interested in doing some tattoos that are reminiscent of this style. Hit me up if you’re interested.

 

 

 

doodles

 

 

I did a really nerdy painting for a Game of Thrones fan art show. Its up all month at Reading Frenzy. Do you want this tattooed on you? Its up for grabs.

 

cancellation? Sailor jerry why not! Kirsten and I did these for fun last week. Even though I often do really pretty delicate stuff I REALLY like doing this sort of thing too. Just sayin.

 

Ok, thanks. More soon.
