What The Blog?

I got my first tattoo at age 19 and it was about as stereotypical as it gets - a Chinese symbol inside of a sun that I think means "happiness and good luck". It probably means "short chubby fool". Ever since the first, I've been seeking out my next. I've got nine in total so far with plans for a half-to-full sleeve in the near future (which my family keeps begging me, even bribing me, to not get). I can't help it - tats are hot and the meaning behind the art tends to be even more seductive.

So, I'm dedicating this blog to the tattoos of the people of Chicago and the people who make the magic happen. If you've got a piece you'd like featured on here, I'd love to hear your story. No piece is too small, if it has meaning to you, it has a place on this blog. Email me: drummrgrl (at) gmail (dot) com

When I'm not out looking at body art, you can find me at concerts around the city with a glass of whiskey in my hand. Come say hello.
