Balance. I am always striving for the most perfect balance within my life for the things and places I love. Most times, I find I just dont have enough time for everything…  with a demanding tattoo schedule, I didn’t have time for much else. So in the last 2 months, I have made time. First thing I had to leave a demanding shop atmosphere, signed up for a few art classes, and did some traveling to Colorado in June, New Jersey to see my family and do some tattooing at Timeless  in July, followed by going down to Florida’s Key West to spend some time with my best friend.  My first vacation in years, without my tattoo equipment! It was a fun few weeks… I love banyan trees, and they are all over Florida… here’s a photo I took across from Ernest Hemingway’s house in Key West.
