LIFE SWEETS // ♥ melanie martinez meet & greet ♥

Early last month I was jumping up and down because Melanie Martinez was doing a little meet & greet and was going to play a few songs in the queen st mall, in Brisbanes CBD. My lovely Ben came along as he was the one who introduced me to Mealines music (on our first date actually ). So we drove to the station & caught the train in, after  a long wait in 38 degree heat she played three songs and then we all lined up to meet her, the line went on forever and I was lucky enough to get in before they had to stop as they ran out of time. I recently did a flash sheet themed to her new album (which I loved and have listen to so much) and showed her, so nervous lil me hands over my drawings and Melanie tells me how amazing they are and literally made my day! Haha it's so funny how you can get so nervous to show your art to the person who inspired it. I wonder if thats how they feel about their music. All in all it was a wonderful day with Ben, having a lunch date and enjoying Brisbane.

Life sweets // Tattoo apprenticeship

It's crazy to think it's been a year since I started my tattoo apprenticeship at the painted lady. It all started like a dream come true and honestly hasn't stopped being amazing  since then. It's been hard work don't get me wrong, long weeks specially last year when I was completing my degree and my internship as well as my apprenticeship but I got through it all. I'm addicted to learning it seems and my apprenticeship I've learnt so much, not just about tattooing, but how to run a shop, how to deal with clients but mainly how to fall in love with your job. I work with the most amazing bunch of talented and wonderful women it helps me strive to be the best I can be. I'm so excited to grow more, try new experiences related to this and to start tattooing this year and really let the fun, and learning begin! This year I'll go to my first tattoo convention with a studio, when I was 14 i dragged my parents to a local convention and was in awe the entire time, thinking one day this will be me!  Thanks to my family & friends and all my supporters I'm looking forward to creating permanent art on you all so soon! 

Here I am tattooing an orange!

Things i've learnt, fake skin is nothing like real skin and will slowly hurt your soul.

Some of my flash designs I've been working on in the past few months.
