Excuse Me, May I Please Photograph Your Ink?

Excuse me, may I please photograph your ink?

I know it’s generational, I have no ink. But I was intrigued when I saw this woman’s back.

Perhaps my asking this wedding guest if I might photograph her ink was bold, but it caught my eye. She said it would be okay.  The Disney Villains.

Did you know they’re on stamps at the USPS, too?

My friend J sometimes asks people at cocktail parties “If you HAD to get a tattoo, what design would you choose?” and some respond, “Oh my NO I would never….” but she says, “if you had to.” What meaningful symbol would you select? Second question is “Where on your body would you have it inked?”

To tattoo or not to tattoo?  There is some intricate ink out there. And there are even knitting tattoos.  Yep!  Who knew?

ink 754I don’t have the tattoo artist credit but will add when I get it.

People at Work: Body Artist

This is not your ordinary face painting!

Last week one of my student’s moms came in to create a special gift for the Communications student teacher as a farewell present on her last day of student teaching.  The timing of it fell on Friday afternoon when they were scheduled for Art class and they asked if it would be okay and I agreed it would be fun to see an artist at work. ( I think she is going to return for Career Day, too)

Michele Johnson is the owner of 7 Heirs Body Art Co/ 7 Heirs Media and was telling us about how she was doing body art  painting during the Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears concerts, drawing a crowd as concertgoers looked on at her work.  It is true, she is quick and creative and the design appears rapidly and beautifully and the addition of jewels tops it off. The students gave a nice round of applause and it took no time at all!

Have an event and need some pizazz, call Michelle 412. 586.5006 or email her –     kristal_klere(at)yahoo(dot)com
