The only reason to take a break from our vacation and go back to the city for a few hours?
Picking up someone at the airport.

Welcome back, bestest buddy, you've been missed!

Happy b-day Eckel

Hope it was a good one!

(To explain the controller; we got Halo 3, but it won't let you play co-op for three people, so i'm stuck watching... boo!)

Sanna is done, you guys

I know the label of this post says "In progress: Sanna" but don't let labels fool you, dear readers, this backpiece is in fact... finished.
Yes, you read that right, a finished backpiece.
A rare occasion indeed, and we're grateful to the always cheerful trooper, and bringer of Swedish strawberries, Sanna, for not being an Adolf Quitler!

This is actually her second session in less than a week, so this picture is a bit of a half healed/half almost healed/half fresh mess
Fully healed pictures coming in October

The whole thing took about a year, almost to the date, and by choosing the before mentioned Sanna label in the dropdown menu to your right, you can see the the progress from drawing to finished tattoo.
I tried to document it as good as i could, and i only missed a couple of sessions.

Anyway, congratulations to both Allan and Sanna, you guys rock!

So, here we are.
It's July and we still haven't set a date for the opening party we were supposed to have back in May.
I don't know exactly when it's gonna be, but i can say that it's not gonna be this month either.

We've long accepted that the shop is never gonna be completely finished, so we shouldn't wait for that to happen, but there are a few more things we'd like to see done before we invite everyone to come see our new home.
There are still lamps that needs to be fixed and hung, and stuff that needs to be painted.
And then there's of course the big, gaping hole in our kitchen ceiling that's about to get a whole lot bigger.
I almost can't handle the thought of more construction dust, but water leaks need to be fixed, even if they aren't technically our problem.

I wanna say that the party will be in late August-early September, but since shit seems to happen a lot, i'm not making any promises!

So instead of an exciting news post, or even one with tattoos in it, you get a plants-and-random-crap-around-the-shop post!

Office window
Last week i planted sunflowers and poppies, and today i planted carrots, radishes and peas (not pictured)... all the unnamed plants in the back were there before, i just moved them a bit
More herbs and veggies, if i don't manage to kill them, outside the kitchen window
My birthday flower is still alive!
While digging in the garden i found several buried treasures, this one even made it inside
This one wasn't found in the soil, but it in an antique shop for 10 kr.
It never friggin ends, does it...

Ok, more garden related posts coming soon*, and some tattoo stuff too i guess.

*Yes, i'm aware that i'm the only one who cares about project carrot, but it's my blog, so the vegetable posts are happening whether you like it or not!

Roses, roses, always roses

I wanted to do a US post here, but Allan has been blogging quite a bit about our trip, as have i, so i guess it's not really necessary.
Allan even posted most of the tattoos he did there, but i do have one that he didn't get a picture of, just one!

A spontaneous rose!

I'll be back soon with some new shop photos and news!
