White Tattoos. Yay, or Nay?

So I've been looking at my back tattoo a lot in the past few months, and I couldn't be more frustrated with myself.
I got it done for my 21st Birthday as a gift to myself and I'm glad I did it but I'm annoyed that I've put off getting it finished!
( For thoses that don't know what my tattoo looks like, you can can check it out here).

It looks beautiful as it is but if you could only see the finished product that made me say 'YES!' to getting it put on me permanently you'll know why I'm itching to get it completed.
Cause all that is really needed is the beautiful detailing to be shaded in, for more definition, and the middle filled in.

A lot of people have asked me what is going in the middle and it's always the same answer, a skull.
Yeah and I get a lot of the same looks that have probably showed up on you're face.
Bewildered confusion!
But the thing is my tattoo wasn't just a 'on a whim' design, it comes from a lot of different designs and decisions on a course of 8years!
And when I think about it, tons of people already had the same idea! ( e.g. Swallows, Angel wings, dandelions etc etc ) And I really wanted mine to be unique.

The skull, however, was going to be needled in black ink; but I've been seriously contemplating on getting it done in white ink so that it does and doesn't stand out that much as it has caused a lot that 'bewilderment'.

So I went on google and here's some white-ink tattoo's that I came accross which I just thought looked beautiful!

The first and second picture's my fave as the detail is so emmaculate and so different from you're normal black ink that I can just see how good my tattoo will look once it's finished!

I'm now super excited, but unfortunately it's going to need to be put off a little more as Andrei (my boyfriend) and I are halfway done saving to move into a new home and also putting money away for our 5 year Anniversay at the end of July which I'll will come back to a little later :-)

So what are you're thoughts on white tattoo's?
Would it be something you'll consider?
Do have any tattoo's that you're proud of/regret?
Where would you reccommend to get inked in you're city?

I know a lot of my followers are US/UK based, but if you ever decide to come to Auckland, New Zealand and would like some ink, I reccommend you go where I got my tattoo; The Tattooed Heart ( link for website here ), and my tattooists name is Aaron.
He's you're typical Heavy Metaler with an amazing talent and I would say nothing but good things about his work to anyone!

Otherwise I will keep you up-to-date with my tattoo's progress in another month or so once the anniversary and moving's over and hopefully it will look as good as I'm imagining :-)

Neon Pink, Black leather

Hi Everyone!

I apologise for my absence, I can't believe it's nearly been a month since my last post! Time does fly huh....?

I have been checking my blog though, and making sure I reply to everyone's lovely comments on previous posts I've done.
So just another big thank you to you all, you're lovely notes make my day :-)

So to start off my posts for the month of June I paid a visit to Recycle Boutique, which most of you know by now is my second home.
I go there to pick up some great designer or unkown brand named clothing, shoes and accessories for fantasic prices. I love the hunt for the pieces I find and also mixing and matching unique outfits.
I also went there because I cleared out a lot of old clothing from my wardrobe that I don't either fit anymore or have just grown out of.

First on my list of current purchases are an amazing pair of booties from shoe designer Mi Piaci.
These goregous black 6inch heels were a steal at $82, they're leather inner and outer lining, have amazing foot padding and make my legs go on forever!
I actually wanted these last Winter but the Mi Piaci retailer were selling them at $260 a pop!
A bit out of my price range, so when I found them at $82 and in my tiny size 6 sole from Recycle Boutique I went for it!

They are sooo pretty, I'm totally rapt with them :-)

Ahhhh, I'm in love!

Next on my list of goodies is this cute as 'one size fits all' purple Octopus-type top!
It came with no brand name on it but thought it was quite neat, and I love the colour and detailing this one come's in.
Picked it up for a mere $18 :-)

- A close up detail of the top
pretty cool huh?

And last but not least.....

This gorgeous pink maxi skirt from Australian brand Supre!
I've been trying to hunt down a maxi skirt like this one for the last month, but it's proved difficult with normal retailers.
I knew RB (Recycle Boutique) would be bound to have some in stock,
I saw a black pleated one before this, but I've been wanting to add more colour to my wardrobe and was specifically wanting this type of colour.
An absolute winner, and at $18 it didn't burn too much of a hole in my wallet!

The top I'm wearing with the skirt is an oldie from Jeans West, just in case you wondering...   

Rocking my curves!!!

So thats all from me for now.
Is there anything else you would reccommend for me to wear with the skirt, top or shoes?
I'd love to hear from you all, otherwise I hope you enjoyed my latest post and you'll be hearing from me soon.
Next on the agenda...
I'll leave that to the imagination :-)

Peace out my awesome bloggers!
