New Home for the Dice Collection

I had to build this shelf to house my collection. I was all giddy bringing everything out of the boxes. Look at all the pretty colors!







I’ve been collecting dice since I was about 17. My first electric tattoo was of a pair dice (it’s covered up now but that’s another story). Many people ask me why dice? Franky, I’m not 100% sure why. I’m not a gambler. I got into bakelite much later, but I love how the plastic looks like candy or the other way around. Small, square, lucky. The fact that you also see images of luck in tattoos and associated with rock n roll (rock a billy). It’s pretty possitive I think to be attracted to good luck charms. So maybe that’s it!

Plus I feel like a pretty lucky girl.
