This is a healed photo of one the the very last tattoos I did before I quit tattooing. @_the_femme_king was cool/crazy enough to get Wesnesday tattooed on him and I am honored!

Fun fact: I LOVE to cook. 
Todays lunch: Shitake & Sun-dried tomato Savory Oats. I made a broth with dried shitake mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, basil, celery, garlic, onion and a dash of Bragg's liquid aminos, to cook the steel cut oats and quinoa in. Then through an egg on top! How's that @followyourfork ?
