Meet my new lifelong friend

I finally got the tattoo I've been craving for almost 3 years now. I drew the design myself and had it made by Aaron in Old School Tattoo, on Pettenkoferstrasse. I'd heard he was good, but he was way better. Steady handed guy, really nice fella, did the job in less than an hour and it looks just like I wanted it to. It didn't even hurt like at all! I want another one!!

There's a better pic coming up, hold your horses, keep reading nicely, and you shall be rewarded.

The weekend we spent pretty much partying. Friday night was the 1st birthday of Kippis, the Finnish interior design-shop on Torstrasse. Mimosa, a performance artist, was serving Finlandia vodka from a Finnish glass bowl taped on top of her head. Here you go, shit loads of heavily coloured partypics with a high saturation and contrast factor:

Then we went to Ruz on Auguststrasse, for tapas and wine with my sis and her friends.

Then across the street to Clärchens Ballhaus, the good old (100 years) balldancing joint...

Laundry on Friday:
dress - Motivi
leggins - Ginatricot
earrings - H&M
necklaces - Six & H&M
ring - vintage from Mex

I can even tell you what Jenna was wearing, cos it was partly from me!:
dress - H&M (she bought it from me, 'cos it was just perfect on her!)
purse - a gift from me from one of the second hand shops on Oderbergerstrasse, makes me happy that she loves it!

Saturday was 'dress to kill'-night at our house. We went to Dice, a club close to our house, where they play good music but no-one goes there. We were totally overdressed, plus almost the only ones there. That didn't keep us from staying 'til 7 am.

Saturday Night Laundry:

Tunique - H&M (I haven't been affording anything else lately...)

gloves - Mango
Head piece - borrowed from Jenna, from Dom

Jen got the adorable tiny hat from H&M.

That's my new buddy! Since you may ask, it represents 3 basic things. It reminds me to eat (peas in a fork), sleep (zZzz) and play (eagerly jumping toy cat). Relevant stuff that I should do more in life. I wanted to make it cartoon-like and scketchy but with some traditional tattoo elements (eg. the composition and the banner). (Also it kinda looks like the toy cat gets shocked by a lightning and stabbed by a fork, which makes me giggle.) So what should I get next? :)

Jensku said...

HEART! <3 Had so much fun there with u guys! I'm definately coming back in the summer! :D

jukka said...

Hieno on!!!

Aoks said...

Awesome update!

Having glanced at the lady with the bowl just once, I kinda figured that must've been a joke, an optical illusion or something, but hell! Have you guys watched Bad Taste lately? Reminds me of how they drink vomit and spit straight out of a bowl. Well, why not?!

Love the tattoo, though. Hugs!


ps. Why's there an invalid icon next to that word verification shit???

Jatta: oh that's so sweet and so true :D thanks! i'm happy u like it

Jenna: It's gonna be even better in the summer. The sequel of the tranny in a kick suit! HEAAART

Jukka: kiitos muru :) haluun jo toisen heti perään! huomenna mennään ottaa reiskalle!! t. hullut

Asko (Aoks!?): Thanks, man! I knew you had to come here and check out what you missed, you lazy bum. ;) It's a shame u weren't here. You were dead to us for a while, but we couldn't resist your charm, when watching some old pictures of you disapproving me and Jenna holding a glass of scotch wearin' your cardigan.

I haven't seen Bad Taste, but after this I'll run to the blockbuster's!

ps. what "word verification shit"? I never get stuff like that when commenting my own blog, so can't help u there :(
