Anonymous asked: Hi! So I'm 19, turning 20 in a few months. I have a few tattoos, one under my collar bone that I would like to build off of for my 3/4 sleeve. I want to start it soon, but in terms of regretting, I was curious of you could give me your opinion. My sleeve is faith-based, so I know that won't change, but do you have any early tattoos that you regret? If so, why?
I’d say definitely do your research as far as the style you want and the artist that you want to do it. I don’t necessarily regret any of tattoos, but I do wish that for a couple of them I would have planned them better. For example: for my first tattoo I wanted something very specific in a specific style, but I wanted a tattoo artist that I was friends with to do it because he was the only artist I knew and I figured he’d be easier to work with. Well the style was not his personal style at all and after going back and forth over it I finally caved and compromised on some things that I wish I hadn’t.
That’s why pretty much the rest of my larger tattoos have been done by someone who’s style I like and who works with me to create something we will both be proud of. So keep that in mind when planning out your sleeve ;)
Anonymous asked: Hey Kelsey, I have really bad social anxiety too the point where I shake around people I don't know I am wanting to get a tattoo on my arm but scared I will be shaking the whole time I am getting tattooed, any words of encouragement? Thanks
Perhaps have a meeting/consultation with your potential tattoo artist and get comfortable around them before scheduling your appointment? It couldn’t hurt!
Anonymous asked: Can you maybe walk me through the steps of making the fairy house? (What kind of terrarium works best, what plant is most efficient) I really want to make one for a gift plus I'm getting more into gardening, succulents, and things of that sort! Thank you so much.
I can give you a basic idea but I will say that here in the super near future you might see a tutorial on a blog that I’ll be doing regularly ;)
Basically any glass terrarium would work. I’d suggest one with plenty of angles for the light to bounce off of to make it look more magical. For mine I took some left over moss we bought at a craft store to cover the bottom, and I actually just used a fake air plant-like arrangement piece that I got at Michael’s craft store! Someday I’d love to get a live xerographica air plant for it instead! But you can use whatever kind of plant/s you want! Then just add wire firefly lights and that’s it!
