Beer time!!

Today marks the start of most of our the drinking season! 

Does your fridge look like this ?


Or similar to this ?

Tip! - To who it may concern (first timers) wanting a tattoo this Christmas, often calling me late nights when your off your face wanting to get the first tattoo and thinking a rabbit copulating (laughs) on the forearm or "your name" on the butt is a great idea at the time. 
Think again, we will be closed tomorrow and Boxing Day 26th.

You have time to reconsider and see us then. 


Computer eye stain!! Feeling it again

Feeling the eye strain in for days, so looked this up and sharing. If you spend as much time as most people on the computer especially this shopping season. 

Avoid computer eyestrain with this 20-20-20 vision health tip: Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Indonesian Rainforest and Orang Utans

Though I'd share this..

Orang Utans, one reason why Indonesian Rainforest is so spectacular and under appreciated.  Also shows the ugly side of Palm oil plantations and it's vast destruction of their habitat, the the Sumatran and Borneo Rainforest.

It's Caroling time again.

If as a child or adult, if you are fond of christmas caroles, share to us onFacebook the reason why you go caroling! Merry Christmas!

Visiting a Sasak Village

O

Just visited a Sasak village in Lombok, Indonesia, the village was 6 generations old with 150 houses and 750 family members. Although it was very exposed to tourism, it was nice to see an intact village still together.

Something interesting and a little different.


Pimp Your Wedding: Show Off Your Ink!


One common objection before getting a visible tattoo was “But what about your wedding? Are you sure it will look suitable with your lovely gown?”  Well, we’re happy to announce that those days are mostly over! As tattoos are getting more common and weddings are becoming less traditional, nowadays we are seeing more brides and even grooms showing off their inks on the Big Day.

There’s no reason to cover it up. Tattoos are badass, offbeat, personal and it speaks your heart out.

 So, our advice is this:  Get out of your uncomfortable shells and reveal your creative side while being the extremely stunning star of the wedding that you'll be.  And one last thing to remember, they’re not the ones who are tying the knot, you are! So you have all the right to express yourself and get funky!


Check out these brides and couples in their “I Do Tattoos!”
