Back from the show:)

Well we are back from the show, Had a Great TIME!! We are all tired and back to work today but every one was busy, lots of tattoos to be done and we all got new tattoos too!! Jay and I got a small swallow on or HANDS!! yes on the hand. Jay got his on his right hand and I got mine on my left, when we hold hands now our swallows and kiss:) We also have these swallows that fly in our house all the time. If we leave our deck door open, they fly in, fly around our kitchen and living room and fly back out again!! I guess we have crossed over the line now, no turning back......we are now officially part of the tattoo world!! Sailor Jerry Swallow did our tattoos for us. He is an old school tattooer from the 50's and it was really cool to have a tattoo done by an old school boy. A part of our history:)
Jay tattoo machines were a BIG hit too!! I was sooooo happy for him:) People were looking for them that bought them last year and sending people to get them!! I guess we are going to have to start doing the convention circuit like the new age carnies:) LOL

Our skull we made did really well. it finished in the top 4 or 5 out of 40. If you would like to see all the finished skull you can check them out here. http://tattoos.com/nix/skulls/index.html

Well back to my dolls, this was a fun weekend but really cut into my doll making so I am happy to be back on track.

I will have updates and WIP coming soon:)

Hope you all had a great weekend, I have some catching up to do so gotta go for now:)

Essie, What is a ppd allergy?? What ever it is......I DO NOT want it!! If it means no more tattoos:(
We did have a nice time and we sold 3 times the machines we did last year!! YIPPEE for Jay:)
His machines are to him what my dolls are to me:)
We were very pleased and surprised we were in the top 4 for the skulls too!!!

Maybe next year we will go to the convention in Amsterdam and I can meet you:)

I saw a few very nice skulls, wow.
A ppd allergy is caused by a chemical called paraphenylenediamine (PPD) which is mixed in blue, black and brown dye/ink.
