How many tattoos do you have? Part fourteen - sister sister

My oldest little sister came to visit me in Victoria a few years ago and we decided to get matching tattoos. We've had this stupid inside joke about the '90s TV show Sister Sister, I don't even know why or where it started but we would sing the theme song to each other. 

Anyway after a very quick look through some Sailor Jerry flash books at my work we decided to go for the classic hearts and banners thing. I got mine from Cody Walsh who used to work at Tattoo Zoo with me, and she got hers from Gerry my boss.

Here's a gross picture of my tattoo after it was just finished. We kept it unbandaged for a bit because Gerry wanted to make sure his looked the same as the one Cody did. Aaaand all that moisture you see is plasma coming out of my skin. Ew!

Here are a few shots I got of my sister getting hers done on her ankle. I don't know why Gerry looks 85 in the last picture, he's actually a very young looking 40-something. haha

And here is a blurry shitty photo of them side by side after we finished. Mine has more yellow in it but other than that they look really similar. Every time she posts a photo of her legs on instagram or facebook and I see this tattoo it warms my heart a little bit.

Do you have matching tattoos with anybody?

Like I said a couple days ago Ryan and the kids went to a music festival. At one point there was a rapper on stage who one of the kids liked but Ryan did not. He said "PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR" and this moment was captured by a local Radio Station.

HAHAHAHAHA so unenthusiastic. I think it's hilarious. You can almost hear him being not enthusiastic through the photo.

this is my boyfriend at a music festival

so dreamy 

They tried to kick him out because no masks were allowed?? Uh what? So he just pulled the trick of running into the crowd and losing the security guards, and then continued dancing around as Chewbacca.

Right now

Ryan and the kids are out at a music festival all weekend and I'm just at home watching the third episode in a row of the reality TV show Utopia. It's terrible but great reality television that I can't stop watching. You know how it is.

I've been on a real reality TV kick lately I am not proud to say. Between this, Hotel Hell, Masterchef and Undercover Boss I am starting to feel ashamed of myself.

So I haven't written much lately, and for good reason. My life is boring! And I've been too busy and tired to un-boring it. I worked 22 days in a row, had a day off then worked 8 days in a row, had another day off and now I'm doing 6 days a week. I've begun to insist I get Wednesdays off so this doesn't keep happening.

Here are some of my latest instagram pics. You can see, other than taking a bit of time to paint I've done nothing but wait for buses, have long hair, go to work and look at my dog.

Seriously though, just look at that mermaid hair. I'm so happy I chose to grow it out. When it's all washed and wavy I feel so pretty!

So um ... what's new with you?
