NEW TATTOO

GIRONA (in spain) TOMORROW!
me and ollie are just friends now, we wernt ever together but we have both moved on from our little crushes and i think it will make our friendship stronger to be honest :) still realy close with muke (his best freind) though.
I will take alot of photos of my trip and post up, hopfully i will get to try out one of their vegan resturants whilst i am there, im only going untill thursday evenining but its my first proper trip on holiday with a friend :)
New amy's meal to try!
i loved the fact it was gluten free and vegan, i bought it after my tattoo with my friend deena and mike :)
ENCHILADAS;


I loved this :) ive eaten it twice since i bought this, secound time it hurt my tummy... i hate how my ibs chooses days and random things to upset it grrr
was realy nice finding it though, beening gluten free aswell.

plated up:


talking about tattoo monkey....
heres a quick picture i took of the inside of the shop :) amazing wall huh?


il take a healed picture soon
couple hours later and like no pain (i have a good pain level) i got this babyyy


its a magpie on a key :)
i wanted this pic



looks sooooooo much better and more detailed when its NOT COVERED in cream and icky stuff, il show u next time :)
planning my next one, guna be pretty big looooooovee tattoos and i love ricky hes amazing!

i also had my first tatoo redone there the other day, il post before and after pictures up when its healed :)

...adn seeing as my freezer is pretty titchy i needed to start eating up all these things i had frozen!

then there was that lentil curry from last week !x!



FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

meh..looks kinda gross, typical frozen meal, loooked ok untill i froze it..
once cooked (microwave style hehe) looked burnt out, bland

plated and tasted:

YUMM it was realy nice, lots of flavor and textures, the rice went realy well and it was healthy too.

to buy or not to buy?
defenently a repeate buy *thumbs up*





mmmm rasberry porridge ^_^



other things i made was a mushroom pate and vegetable pizza and strawberry scone cupcakes
, it was a mini pizza but i cut it in half so that i could enjoy it with other things :)





question:
as a trainee tattooist, i will be exspected to tattoo onto dead animals for practice, i find this a little disterbing thinking of inking onto a dead pig for 3-4 hours continiously.
whats your views on practicig on dead animals?
i know that the "skin is simmilar" and without it my tattoos on people would be terrible but still...

i never usually comment on peoples tattoos, but that is one of the prettiest tattoos i've ever seen. seriously!

regarding the pig skin thing - i was talking to some people about this on a vegan facebook group once. they were all sharing pictures of their tattoos, and i asked if they had issues with the fact that their tattooists probably practiced on dead pigs - seems strange to spend all your time avoiding animal products, things which have been tested on animals etc, then to fund a practice which has involved dead animals. one of them said,

"i personally know at least 8 people that tattoo and none of them have ever practiced on pig skin! I have seen that on one of those cheesy l.a ink programs or something though. i reckon most people just practice drawing loads before they even start n then use fruit for practicing. Some people just start by tattooing something simple on themselves. Then again, my opinion is probably a bit biased because it only refers to people i know lol..."

so although it's common practice, i don't think it's something they HAVE to do, so you wouldn't have to do it. a lot of people are often on the lookout for cruelty-free tattoo artists who use vegan inks etc, so maybe that's what you'll be! obviously it's a personal choice but personally i would never ever practice on a dead animal.

pheww that was long! anyway your food looks AMAZING as usual! seriously! i want it ALL. have a great holiday! xx

i think if i have to eat a frozen meal, amys always looks and tastes the best!! good choice ;) ive never had those enchiladas though..

Hmm, that is an interesting ethical question aboout tatooing on dead animals. I actually never knew that tattoo artists learned that way. I guess if they didn't kill the animal for the purpose of just learning to tattoo it's okay...
