  • I had been thinking of getting a tattoo since I was 16. I spent my time sifting through countless websites such as Weheartit and Tumblr  to search for interesting tattoos and saved the ones which really spoke to me. These consisted of feathers, swallow and anchor tattoos. I remember talking to my friends about how I would love to get inked once I turned 18. At the time, getting tattooed and having small piercings (such as nose rings and multiple piercings in your ear) seemed to be a trend. My Facebook newsfeed was constantly flooded with peop...

  • One of the greatest life lessons is all about reasoning with one’s heart whilst also implementing our actions with our own minds. I mean we all want to be poets, actors, footballers (famous ones obviously), in love, Presidents and rock stars… however life tends to choose other paths. Dearest friends (and foes), reality can get you down and what’s worse, all we can do is react in a way which simply limits its consequences. I am a dreamer. By age ten ...

  • Pin up girls have been the rage of the 19th century. Originally named for literally pinning up photographs on the walls, these models, actresses and war propagandists inspired many and lived up to their 1950s style regardless of anyone’s opinion or outlook on fashion. Pin up style and photos are unique and allude to the art of seduction and burlesque, that is the creation of a sense of glamour. The original idea of displaying the ‘girl next door’ exuding her femininity, gave hope to thousands of men and raised their morale amidst the horr...

3 Good reasons why NOW is the perfect time to get tattooed.

  • The Studio We all know how hot it can get here in Malta in the sunny season. You’re practically sweating as soon as you’re out of the shower! The heat gets to us all and even though studios have air conditioning, in a busy studio doors are being opened all the time. Some may overlook this slight issue but the artist would be much more at ease and focused if they’re not feeling the heat, especially when tackling details or hours of work. The environment is much more comfortable and you could even get offered a cup of tea. Healing ...

The trouble is you think you have the time

  • Searching for some inspirational quote from which I could endeavour to create a singular perspective, I came across this archaic statement; Time’s up, gone, past! By now you should start to come to terms with how quickly the present floats out of our lives. One second you’re savouring and trying to understand the essence of what in my opinion is a very truthful quote, the next you’re thinking about yourself thinking about what I just asked you to try and think about.
