Damn fine coffee!

This last week almost felt never ending due this cold I'm still trying to get over. Spencer and I shared a wonderful couple's massage by Faye and Eric at Aqua Terra Massage. If you live in Portland, or are just swinging through, it's well worth a visit. It was Spencer's first, and by far, my best massage ever! It probably didn't help my cold, but I'm not complaining (or am I?).

Erika, who I tattooed last year on her visit from San Fransisco, came back for some more cloudberries and a Twin Peaks tattoo. I had so much fun with this, and I would love to do more Twin Peaks related tattoos! Thank you Erika, you're a trooper!

I started a sacred heart on Karla, which is different from a lot of the stuff I usually do. But I had so much fun during our session, and I can't wait to work on it some more. Thanks Karla!

I started these peonies on Cat a few weeks ago, and she came in to get it worked on some more. I don't usually do black and grey, so I'm excited about the way this is turning out. I can't wait to see it healed. Finish in two weeks!

I had some prints made, and both of these are now up for sale in my Etsy shop! A huge thank you to everyone that has already picked up a set! :)

I also have some other exciting news! Spencer and I are going on a road trip, starting off with the Salt Lake City Tattoo Convention, March 9-11th! Seth Ciferri and I are sharing a booth, and Spencer will also be there selling his coils. If you would like to schedule something with me, send me an email at

After SLC, Spencer and I are headed to Las Vegas to visit family and friends. And then...Disneyland! I've never been there, so I have no idea what to expect. Especially since I grew up in Norway. I'm sure visiting Disneyland is gonna be unreal though. I can't wait!

Until next time,
S. <3


  1. NO WAY, the coffee tattoo is so amazing! Now she needs a cherry pie tattoo :) Did she ask you to do that, with the floor and the curtains, or did you just know? Either way, you win, that's fucking glorious. Fantastic work!

  2. OMG I wish you were tattooing in Vegas! I've always wanted a tattoo by you but haven't been out to Oregon yet.
    Love and Turtledoves,

  3. We love your illustrations - your tattoos are amazing!
    If we ever make it all the way to Portland (we're in Scotland) we would love to be inked by you :) thanks for sharing your art and good luck!

  4. The Twin Peaks tattoo is the most amazing thing ever. I may just have to come back to PDX soon to see if I could book you for a session.
