New Tattoo! Again :D

Ok,anyone who knows me knows that I love certain things...and obviously, the 50's,Elvis,vintage decor, ford falcons (pre 64) and travel trailers are just a few....but I also love other stuff,rockabilly,psychobilly,black metal,punk,pop...even some rap music....I love traveling,and seaking out weird stuff( I do live in weird NJ) the shore,cats!! Horror movies and tattoos to name a few others.
I obviously love tattoos and have a decent chunk of once I came across someone that I knew and saw his sick work, I HAD to find out where he got them done.
Staring at his tattoos..I was in complete awe as I saw black work of some of my fav horror characters....Mike Myers, Freddy, Frankenstein, Chucky, yeah I knew then and there that this guys style was what I wanted for my Elvis, and he KILLED IT! So amazing,and tbh....the pictures I post do these tattoos no justice at all. To see them in person,it's just ridiculous.
Anyhow, so to pair up my Elvis, I decided to get a zombie version of Marilyn Monroe....which I cannot wait for! But of course more and more ideas just come flooding. Now I have work that needs finished,that I should start getting colored in, but ya just can't pass up some new awesome's like opening a gift on damn exciting! So I decided that as well as Marilyn on my lower leg,I'd like to dedicate my thigh to the Universal Monsters.. I know that he will make that like no other,and I cannot wait for that as well....buuuuuut until then, today I happened to stop in and add a new tattoo to my collection. My very own Rob Zombie :D I love him...have loved all his movies...think he's an absoultely amazing person and of course...Froggy was down and turned out the sickest,most awesome piece.
I chose an old school photo of Rob from years ago that just screamed "tattoo"
I already have a zombie tattoo on my wrist, my friend Nicole and I got matching ones on our wrist years ago,it's just the name,but this one took it to a whole nother level.
I'm so excited to call this man my tattoo artist, and I swear to anyone in the Jersey / Philly area...he's sick! He does amazing work and is reasonable in his pricing.
Froggy's Tattoos
Check him out!
Here's a pic halfway done..

and here's a pic freshly done..

I'm fucking amazed and cannot wait until its fully healed and the swelling has gone down,ahhh just thinking about what future tattoos he's gonna do,im seriously excited to have some awesome ass legs! lol.

Lil Shasta

Growing up,we had a similar one to these little guys in the yard.

My sister and I used to play house in it all the time. Looking back it was the simple things in life that made ya happy. My dad ended up getting rid of it and to this very day I wish he would've kept it. My dream is to own one again,and make it my own. I found this photo on flickr...look how beautiful this is....

What I would give to have this right now.
I have so many goals to work towards right now and this is one of them <3

Our heat index is hitting 115 today,sounds fun! Thank goodness I'm at work in ac,but id rather be down the shore relaxing on the beach. Everyone thinks I'm weird because I love when its hot,but I hate when its so muggy that you feel sticky and can't breathe and that's how its been here lately.

I need to do my hair, I need a new style and color. I wish my hair would cooperate and let me strip it enough to go back to blonde, but it hates me. I've also been thinking about cutting it, but id probably cry if I cut it any shorter. I dunno, I just need something new and cute.

Zombie Elvis

Finally got my zombie Elvis done. He's still healing though,so you get a feshly done swollen shot of my leg.

Been waiting so long for this and it's so amazing!

I'm back!!!

I've been MIA since February,but I promise to start back at using this blog! I still stop in a few times a week and read all my blog favs but so much has been going on with work and life in general that the only thing I've constantly kept up on has been Facebook,only because I access it most of the time on my phone,but like I said..I promise to becoming a better blogger! :D

I hate ebay and I hate myself for missing out on an auction that i've been watching by 4 minutes because I was on the phone! Ugh... PERFECT pink,brown,turquoise atomic drapes...I wanted them so bad... they went for 52 bucks..more than I was going to bid but still..not the point. LOL.
Tomorrow is my 30th birthday. Wow. I can't believe I'm gonna be the big 3-0. Kinda long 20's.
Going to Atlantic City with the husband and best friend to do some shopping at LUSH mmmm..MAC...Betsey Johnson and wherever else we end up..then having dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. Yay!
Before that..I'll be on my way to my fav antique lady to pick up a 50's low back seafoam green wide armed arm chair and I cannot wait!!!!!!! Yayyyyy!
I also picked up some pyrex today at a local thrift shop and my sister got me the cinderella bowl set i've been wanting for my bday!
So I guess I shouldn't hate myself for missing out on the curtains.. I mean I do have 2 other pairs on watch.

Happy New Year Everyone!! So I took off this weekend to celebrate but we decided that we wanted to stay at home and have a quiet NYE to ourselves. Yes, we are in our 20's going on 60's LOL. Boring, I know but after such a hectic holiday and both of us working all the time it was nice just to relax. Plus, I had to rest up for a trip to my favorite antique lady today! LOL. A few days ago I happened to go online and look up a local antique shop to which I've made purchases from in the past..most notably my amazing love of my life table...

If you can't tell by the pic its a seafoam green shade.
Anyhow...Ive been in the looks for some fancy 50's style endtables..yanno the kind grandma used to have lol...well I have a newly aquired love for Heywood...but since my area lacks places to find wonders unless ya travel to Lancaster..and the fact that for two tables on ebay it's double my car payment I knew I wouldn't be aquiring any of those shortly. So scrolling down the page I came across the perfect alternative! Two cherry formica chrome looking edged stepped endtables from the 50's!!! I had to have them, so being the wonderful fiance he is..Luke called her up to find out if they were still available and the answer was sadly no..they had been on hold for a couple who were supposed to pick them up by Christmas. SOOO sad! But, if anything changed we would be the first to know. So, come Friday, I'm at work and I get a text message...well a picture message from an unfamiliar number showing me some retro kitchen chairs and guess what...informing me that the tables were available!!! The former couple had backed out and they were now mine!Yay! So today we got up, drove down to Bridgeton and did a little shopping! I picked up my tables and walked away with some funky kitchy barkcloth drapes..def not what I wanted for the livingroom, but at the price..2 bucks per panel and $1 a valance I couldn't pass up...I mean who I want more of an atomic pattern but until I can come across those..these will be fun,since they match the colors in my existing livingroom.
I have no information on the pattern... I feel like they would look best in a kitchen..but since my kitchen area is pink and seafoam they def. do not match.
Here's a picture I yanked offline..the only thing I could find on etsy, which doesn't give much info....if anyone knows what it's called please let me know!

Pretty funky looking eh? I also picked up some matching kitchen cannisters to go with my kitchen, I have pink ones already but I picked up the seafoam ones, a 50's cream general electric alarm/radio and some little bits. All in all a pretty good score! She is also on a lookout for some other items for me...specifically a new (old) sofa and chair...which if all works out well we may have a 50's large turqouise chair soon...fingers crossed!'s a picture of Elvis, one of our cats enjoying one of the new soon as we brought them in he thought they were a new bed...silly kitty...don't think so!And yes...he is a HUGE cat! LOL.

Ooops...Almost forgot! I got a new tattoo a few days ago! Toots on my left fingers! My dad's called me toots ever since I was I thought it was fitting! Goes well with my dollface on my right hand! LOL.
Don't mind my fingers..this was soon after getting done and fingers swell mighty nice when done!

Oh...and my dress came..but that'll be another post directed towards wedding stuff...
