#wcw goes to me! Haha Wait, hear me out. I took this picture shortly after making a huge step to leave my home and move to NJ. I see it now, that look on my face where I'm trying to hold it together but appear alright. I was starting in a new shop with no clientel, living at a friends house with nothing but a suitcase. I was proud of myself for leaving but scared if I was making the right decisions. It was hard. It would have been easier to stay, to settle for complacency and be where I thought I was ok. I've been forced and challenged to really reflect on myself. My goals, my desires and my dreams and it's curious when you realize that some of your previous aspirations were based on fear. Some days, even weeks I'm tempted to take the easier road in life. Do what I know I can, what I can control. To keep myself guarded and protected. I'm refusing to live that life anymore. I'll take the chances, push the envelope maybe even let the guard down for anyone I deem deserving. I'm living proof of the reminder that best things in life are the ones that we have to fight for. You are stronger than you think you are. Keep pushing and putting out the effort. You can do this

PSA! AUG 31 - SEPT 2 I will be coming back south with @dpatricktattoo for the @carolinatattoogathering in #Lenoir #NC. I will NOT be making it to Knoxville this trip or for the knox convention. This show is only a couple hour drive from Knoxville Appointments will be given priority to those with unfinished work, but I may have spots available for smaller pieces as well.

It's not that she stopped caring. She just stopped caring for things that had to be forced. #ladyfugate #bethebestyou #newhair #rbf #effortless

Candid shot from yesterday. Had a great day with some of the people I am most thankful to have in my life. Sometimes it's not about posing for the photo. Sometimes you just have to be you, raw, relaxed and surrounded by genuine people. Make time for those who matter even if its just a quick call, buying a couch or hanging out with good conversation.
