Making an Impression

One of my clients just called to get permission to have a famous tattoo artist tattoo one of the portraits I took of his daughter onto him.

This is a real thrill for me. My artwork is going to be on someone FOREVER.

It was also unbelievably nice to call and ask, and I told him I would happily provide the tattoo artist with the digital image if that would make life easier.

I also have three other people booking appointments, and one that just placed a very large order.

Yay me!

Hey speaking of famous tattos artist, do you watch Miami Ink? I am watching it right now and Darin on there just found out he is having a baby boy and they are naming it Cash Avery. Is it you that wanted a boy named Cash?

His last portrait tattoo was done by Kat Van D (and is amazing). I can't remember the site of this other guy, but he says he's a bigger deal than Kat and will do an even better job. When I log back into that email and get the site name, I'll be sure to share.

I love the name Cash Avery! I wanted a Cash Alexander, but not another boy really, so it probably won't ever happen. Love me some Miami Ink too!!

Alissa said...

Whooohoo! Congrats! I am not surprised at all you are an excellent photographer!! I love LA Ink and Miami Ink too. I wanna be Kat VonD. She is so hot!

Me said...

Wow wow wow. I would be so totally thrilled too!

I had a feeling that photography is your nitch, worked in with your thoughtful writing.

I admire people with artistic talent like that.

I would much rather do that than be the cubicle rat that I am. Programming... boooring. BO ring!
