Got this amazing eyeball stick and poke from the super talented and sweet as can be @ruffenough! I’m pretty sure I’ve got at least two dozen eyes tattooed on my body now, can’t seem to get enough! 😂 ✨💛👁💛✨
✨ SOFTNESS ✨ On Tuesday I drove @tenderbrusselssprout to his new home in Seattle and yesterday I received his first official tattoo as a licensed tattoo artist at his new job at @valentinestattoo! I’ve been eyeing this design since we started dating and it feels appropriate to have finally gotten it now. One of my intentions for 2018 is to be softer - more vulnerable, more accepting, more patient, more trusting, and more loving. We laid together on the couch in his new apartment and cried together before I had to head back to Portland. It’s a sad but exciting time in our lives as we both pursue our passions and I’m grateful for his support through it all!
2017 was full of a lot of growing pains and a lot of love. I traveled to Hong Kong to meet my new nephew, moved into a beautiful new home filled with incredible energy, met Dane who has inspired me and encouraged me in so many ways, road tripped to places on my dream list (Yellowstone and Salvation Mountain), got a lot of amazing tattoos, decided to pursue tattooing for real, saw a total solar eclipse, camped in some of my favorite places in Oregon (the dunes, Sand Lake, the Alvord desert, Painted Hills), saw Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors, made amazing new friends, and turned 30! I’ve got a lot of big changes on the horizon and I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring! Forever grateful for this wild, emotional, and awe-inspiring life. 💕
My angel baby @tenderbrusselssprout is moving away in a couple weeks so I had his flash designs reimagined as nail art by the immensely talented @topknotnails at @fingerbangportland ✨💕🍬😏🙄🍬💕✨

✨ 30 ✨ Simultaneously excited and sad to say goodbye to my twenties - all the wild craziness, never-ending fun, deep heartaches, and boundless expansion. Feeling full of gratitude for such an amazing love-filled life. Looking forward to the next year and decade of adventure and growth. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in helping to shape who I am and loved me along the way! (Polaroid Portrait by Me)
Alison Appreciation post! ✨ My sweet angel baby had this necklace custom made for me for my birthday (this Sunday!) by my all-time-favorite dream-girl rock-queen @alisonjeancole (if you don’t follow her you should - she digs rocks out of cliffs and rivers and uses saws and diamond drill bits to cut and shape them into beautiful wearable works of art!) Also, shout out to another amazing Allison, @allisonsheaphillips, for making one of my favorite shirts of all time ‘Death Is Fun’! 👁💚💎
New Flash! With some inspiration from a few photographers I love! Painting that fishnet body suit was probably my favorite part 🙃 Make sure to follow along at @shannonwolftattoo cause I’m gonna stop double posting tattoo stuff soon!

Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right

Thanks to @tenderbrusselssprout for tattooing this portrait of a young Jerry Garcia on me, deadhead forever 😛

✨ BEING A BEGINNER ✨ In 6th grade I wanted to be a skateboarder so badly. I asked for a skateboard for my birthday and hit up the local skate park. I could barley ride but some kids egged me on to drop in off a pretty big half pipe and then laughed at me when I fell on face. I was so embarrassed I went home and decided to never skate again. I’ve always regretted giving up and I’ve always secretly held the dream to learn to skate. Grateful for my sweet bf for encouraging me to try again. Even though I can still barely ride and I definitely fell more than once, I’m excited to keep going. I’ve never done well with sticking to things I’m not naturally good at so I’m trying to break that pattern and embrace being a beginner. | Likewise, I’ve been humbled by the support and kindness of friends, strangers, and the tattoo community as I have recently decided to pursue tattooing. It can also feel intimidating to be at the beginning of this new path but I’m tying to embrace the excitement of it as well. Last week I received a tattoo as half of a trade with fellow new tattooer @damn_zippy (the human paw with eye) and I’m excited not only to tattoo her soon, but to be developing new friendships with such amazing people. You should check out her work and give her a follow!
Finished this infinity mirror babe on @tenderbrusselssprout last night! #handpoked
Grateful that we decided to wake up early and drive out to the mountain to catch the totality: a perfect breezy sunny summer day, a cloudless blue sky, and a potently beautiful and eerie total eclipse of the sun, unlike anything else! (Thanks to @noland.chaliha for sending me off with a blackberry eclipse hand pie!) ☀️🌑✨
