Newest Addition

So the other day I got a new tattoo, I'm so excited for this one because it means a lot to me. 
About 5 years ago I was a new cosmatology student that couldn't wait to start my journey as a new hairstylist, and to show how passionate I was. One day, I impulsively walked into a tattoo shop and asked if anyone had an appointment available right then…and they did. Well, to no surprise it was a poorly done tattoo that had crooked lines it was awful in size, and disproportionate.  Which of course is partially my fault, I didn't take the time to look into an artist and I acted on pure impulse. By the next month I was already making an appointment for laser tattoo removal. After only two sessions of the removal, I have a few faint lines left. They at least recommend 5 sessions but I guess I got pretty lucky with only the two. I'm sure I could use one more session to fully remove the tattoo.
Well anyways, after that experience I still wanted to recreate the shears tattoo I always wanted. I already had the "mind over matter," the artist just worked it into the shears and the framing. Im extremely passionate about what I do and I'm thrilled I have an amazing tattoo that shows that off. I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out.
