I’ve been horrible about blogging this semester, inexcusably lazy about it really. The fact is, I haven’t done much tattooing or travelling lately. I started out well enough, tattooing some coworkers, getting my needles out at least twice a week. Then I got bogged down a bit with other shit…like trying to finally finish my papers for my Master’s degree (not there yet, but making progress). In the very near future, I’m planning a couple blogs: one on becoming vegan, one describing my life here in Nanyang, China before I leave (in just a few weeks!), and maybe a couple others if there’s time.
I’ve also started putting together a physical portfolio of my work, both tattoos and drawings. It’s interesting to see the past year or so of my efforts all together in one spot (other than a computer screen…I guess I’m a bit of a Luddite at heart; it all seems much more real/valid when put into a book one can flip through). I’m hoping to continue working towards becoming a professional tattooer when I return to the US at the end of June, so a physical portfolio should come in handy.
In other scintillating news, I’ve started a YouTube channel. It’s weird, I never thought of myself as much of a social media person (see above technophobic comment), but I’m gradually spreading out onto more internet platforms. Over the past year-and-a-half I’ve joined Pinterest, Instagram (sev_1900), started this blog, and made an additional Facebook page (“Sarah Seveney Ink”). What’s next, Twitter and Snapchat? No…probably not. Anyways, if you’re interested in travel videos, which are basically compilations of videos clips I’ve made in places like Florida, Thailand, and here in China, then my YouTube channel is the place to find such things…”sev1900”. Thanks for reading, and I hope you’re having a beautiful late spring/early summer!
