Gypsy Jen

Can you see the man's head in this one?

Some things I like to do while tattooing ( and  for no additional cost):
~Interpret dreams (especially the re-occuring ones)
~Bio water interpretation, that is when I look into my rinse cup and see the different swirling colors from the different pigments. They usually make some interesting shapes. I've seen fetuses for example.
~Paper towel Rorschach tests. This is when I unfold the paper towel and see what ink blot pattern is made from the color and wiping.
~After I am done tattooing (I am usually very messing) I have ink spills on the floor, those also take shape sometimes and the most recent one was a single drop that turned into a skull. I tried to take a picture of it but it is elusive.

Here is a picture of me from 2001. It was taken by the lovely tattoo artist Flo Amblard from Paris. We took this in San Francisco. I have more tattoos by now. I will have to post a current pic.



This is how I feel about tattooing.
Making art or music is one of those things were you need crazy drive and determination.
Not too many people have that. Most people's actions are fleeting.
You got to stick to something till you see it through to the end.
Be passionate about what you do and have something to show for it.
Work hard at what you believe in and don't give up.
Stay focused and put the time and energy into it.
Who gives a shit what others may think.
Create and destroy, conquer and dominate!

Does anyone want a portrait of Gandalf? This is the picture I would like to use.
