It’s funny, but if I had a penny for every time someone asked me how I do things with nails, I’d buy a huge tub of protein. My gym pal and I decided we needed a spa visit. Yep… we’re girls who lift with nails. Last week an older man in the gym asked me how I did it with “those nails?” I told him I’d “use my nail to poke his eye out.” Maybe I should have invited him to watch me bench today? 😂

I am so happy with the font and color on this. I love it! I saw this word tatted on a UFC fighter during UFC 207 and I knew I wanted it! This is an inked badge to remind me that kicking ass and giving blood in the gym, in my personal life and at work is vital to my survival. I’ll *never* crumble due to hardship or hate because I am indeed “Relentless.” Red… a color that is symbolic of so many things.
Strength fractures for few
and falls away to no place.
When strength dies for you,
appreciate that moment
of weakness. My moment
keeps you pliable and human.
That fissure keeps you loved
and human even though you,
not I, deserve to break.

On March 4th, 10 RULES OF THE INSANELY STRONG by Matt Kroc of T-Nation came through to my inbox. Physical Culturist always publishes the greatest articles. These rules are ones to live by. I loved that this article came through a few days before I’ll have the word “strength” inked on me… added permanently to my skin archive.
Here are some photos from my latest sitting with Leo Gonzales, owner and artist (Stay Gold in Albuquerque). I love his work and went to school with him. He created my sorcerer a long time ago and I’m adding to it and having it redone. I’ve had many compliments on the new ink and look forward to my next sitting. I’ll have some black shading put into the “magic” and the sorcerer will be retouched on the next round. So far this tat has taken about 10 hours. I’m probably looking at 5 more!
I love the summer. There is nothing like fresh air and the warmth of the sun after a busy day at work. It is really invigorating. Yesterday I went for a short run and it felt very good. I am addicted to the gym. That is no lie, but I do like outdoor fitness as well. I need to start making more time for that even though I’ve been hitting the gym hard.
After my run, I stopped to rest on my favorite perch (a metal telephone company box), where I can watch cars pass back and forth to and from Albuquerque. I’m always amazed by how many vehicles can pass by in just a few minutes. That’s the case at night too! While I was sitting there on the box, I looked down at one of my other old tattoos. It needs to be redone.
My sorcerer is about 50% through the process of getting reinked and added to. I was in Leo’s chair for 5 hours last Saturday, but I need another sitting. I am really happy with his work and nobody will ever be trusted marking my skin again. I think my sorceress will be next!! Leo didn’t ink that one and I regret that. I have never really been happy with her. She needs reworking. Hope she’s ready!
