So many ways to grow and expand. I am not sure if it is my age or what but this state has been steady and sometimes at a rapid pace. I have done some big things lately. I would love to share the first biggie…
I have wanted a tattoo for a very long time. As time went on I knew what I wanted…a butterfly, a red butterfly to be exact. I researched and found photos of the Red Admiral Butterfly and viola my tattoo. I love red … possibly an understatement. 😉 I love it because it is vibrant, dramatic, energetic. There is lots of great symbolism for butterflies, I connect with being in a cocoon, metamorphosis, emergence, wings drying getting ready to take flight, then lift off.
So I waited and waited for the right time and for the right artist.
This is my beloved Butterfly Tattoo freshly done.
The Tattoo artist is Calah Wright , she works out of Railbender Tattoo Studio & Art Gallery. I had been following the studio for awhile through social media and noticed a post saying they were happy to have a new artist. I googled immediately to see what she was all about…hmmm 64 butterfly tattoos herself this could be a match. Then I went on to find out what I could via the internet. Of course found lots of tattoos she had done but also found her art which was/is AMAZING to me. She is a very talented artist all around so that matched right up with my first (and any) tattoo needs to be VERY good. I felt very confident that she would produce my vision…honestly I was blown away, it turned out so amazing. It is of course healed now and so somewhat faded as they do but wow it is still a stunner and when people notice and I always get asked who did it and lots of Wow, that is so good!!
On a side note, Calah is a very inspiring women. She is doing life her way. She is a tattoo ninja and an elite althete just qualified for the UWCT World Championships in September in Denmark. I love that I keep meeting people like this. Life your own way….Beautiful.
