Flew out to Puerto Rico on December 1st for the Puerto Rico Tattoo Convention. I really fell in love with Puerto Rico. I’m still mind blown by the amazing food but most of all I was so captivated by the old architectures right on the ocean! The Convention was also a great success. I met so many nice people and was even approached by the lovely Morgin Riley to shoot some quick casual shots, how could I say no to such an amazing photographer! Hopefully I’ll have some of the photos soon to share with you all! Aside from that I was feeling great being surrounded by so much amazing art and watching some of the most renounded tattooers at work. It was an amazing experience and I think for this being San Juan’s first tattoo convention it was a massive success and can only expect next year to be even better! Of course Atti and I had a blast with Toxyc and Flavia and Justin from Ressurection Tattoo. Fun times and surely a trip I will not forget. I even snuck in a very successful shoot with my new IPhone while I was at the El Batey bar ;) The location was really cool and there was a flood light which was a great source of light, I just couldn’t resist! On Monday Toxyc, Flavia and Justin had an early afternoin flight back to Austin which left Atti and I on our own. Our flight back to Tampa only left at 8pm so we had the whole day to sight see which I was really grateful for. One of my favorite things about travelling is experencing the culture and visiting the old architectures. Old San Juan blew me away! I’ll stop babbling and let you all watch the photos to see what I mean ;)

Austin was a lot of fun! It was really nice catching up with Toxyc and Flavia, our generous hosts.
We could only find cheap flights out of Orlando on Nov. 26th so we ended up waking up at 3am and calling an Uber to head to the Orlando airport from Tampa. We made it there by 5am and our flight got us to Austin by 9am. Of course we headed out for drinks downtown in the evening to get a taste of Austin’s nightlife but we were pretty beat from all the traveling so we didn’t spend too much time exploring. The following day Atti had an appointment with Toxyc anyway for a touch up and a few new additions to his head tattoo. During our 4 day vacation we also looked at a few apartments and I think we might have found one! After our search we hit up breakfast tacos, headed out to The Oasis, a restaurant situated at the edge of a cliff overlooking a breathtaking view of Lake Travis, then a quick stop at a hula bar for margaritas before hitting up 6th street for more drinks. I was so happy to find an Irish Car Bomb partner to down a couple of those with ;)
On December 1st we were all packed up and ready to head to Puerto Rico for the San Juan Tattoo Convention but first you can see photos from my Austin trip under the cut!!

Finally made it out to Las Vegas for the first time! I had an opportunity to make a trip out that way for some photo shoots with the Blue Blood crew Forrest Black and Amelia G. Over all the trip was a complete success and I’m looking forward to sharing all the new material I shot especially with my new wishlist items thanks to my generous supporters! Ironically while I was in Vegas my bestest friend Stephen happened to be out there as well as my friend Josh so it was a pleasant surprise to see them the first night we arrived. I spent most of Tuesday and Wednesday shooting but was still able to slip in some leisure time for drinks and exploring around the beautiful city. Anyway, I’ll just let you all watch the photos to get an idea ;)

Flew down to Florida a couple days before Halloween to celebrate my older sister’s birthday and spend Halloween with my twin sister. We’ve been taking it mostly pretty easy with lots of visits to coffee shops, enjoying lots of the best food ever like sushi and tacos, mini golfing, bowling and of course bars & beach visits! I also made it out to The Castle which was a pleasant blast from the past. My most memorable moments so far have been seeing my best friend Steevie, and shooting a really cool tribal inspired set at Ft. Desoto beach. I also managed to shoot some wigs with my twin sister for Pennywigs! These are sets you can expect in the near future but until then I have big plans to catch an early flight to Las Vegas on Monday!

First off I want to thank everyone who helped me out with wishlist gifts! I already have plans for most of the items and can’t wait to get back to shooting asap!
Wishlist aside I wanted to post about my trip back home. Atti and I decided to fly into JFK, New York because it was cheaper than most options but also because my parents are currently staying in their cabin in Pennsylvania and a short ride from the airport back to their place. It was a very relaxing stay and I loved seeing all the wildlife and colors.
We had a great time visiting Ricketts Glen, the Gettysburg Museum, the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, the Lackawanna Cole Mine and Steamtown in Scranton as well as other fun things like shooting bows and photo shoots ;) Anyway I’ll let the photos do the talking as usual :)
