Saturday Morning Walk and Monkey Astronaut

I found this great millinery supply store called Goldknopf, Charlottenplatz 17, where I bought ribbon and fake fur to make collars for this winter and the fabulous facinator you can see me wearing in the photos below.

Stuttgart: First Tattoo

mellifriendstattoo

Three of my tattoos last weekend involve beer, ray guns and sausages. Funny idea for a tattoo? Three girlfriends who’s last names correspond to these items, wanted their friendship in memorial. First one was on Melli, who’s hair salon I was a guest. Melli loves herself as a pink sausage, it made her laugh like crazy:)

That’s Melli in the purple wig.

Day Trip to Lille

We went to Lille this weekend. It’s only one hour by train from Paris. The architecture reminds us of Belgium.

Long Beach and the Oldest Tattoo Shop in the USA

I went to Long Beach to check out the oldest tattoo shop in the US. I also was on fourth street also known as “Vintage Row”. Cool trip but very bad traffic on the way back to LA. Should have stayed on the Queen Mary!
