For the second session for my back piece, we worked on the outline for my Artemis tattoo. Per usual, Lexy absolutely killed it and blasted through this big outline in just a couple hours.
I finally pulled the trigger and decided to start a massive back piece. I went through a lot of ideas, but finally settled on some badass Greek mythological women. For my first session, we did the outline of my Persephone tattoo.
Last weekend was my 24th birthday and I wanted to treat myself to a little mini vacation back to California. I’ll be flying solo for this trip, but I’ll end up being super busy catching up with friends, celebrating my belated birthday, and getting tattooed. For this trip, I’ll be flying with a carry-on, which means I have to be more conscious of what I’m packing.

I'm finally going on my first vacation in five years! While it's not a trip to a far away country, a weekend trip still counts as a vacation to me.
After LA Fashion Week, I decided it was time to get away from the city and relax for the day. My boyfriend and I decided it'd be a good idea to go to the desert to check out the Super Bloom, so we ended up at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
