Idiomatic, untranslatable German words: Weltschmerz- “is the sense both that one is personally inadequate and that one’s personal inadequacy reflects the inadequacy of the world. It is a pain suffered simultaneously both in the world and at the state of the world, with the sense that the two are linked.” (Which is how I feel after I realized I spelled it wrong in my sketchbook.)

Dizzying hall of quality amber fish liquid content, the best display on museum specimen preservation/presentation, the most stunning parrot taxidermy, presented like ikebana or sculpture. Became one unit older yesterday, best birthday choice yet.

At this point, I can barely tell the paintings from the reference, but the moth balls might be going to my head. Top kingfisher from 1874, mounted for display but converted to research specimen, existential dilemma eternal.

So strange and exciting to see 7 years of tattooing in a (literal) body of evidence. Brian was a walk-in when I was a lowly first year tattooer, praying that anyone liked my portfolio enough to take a chance on me, pre-instagram, no followers, no hype. Glad I could cap off his chest and shoulder to make it full circle - thanks for trusting me then, and trusting me now. 🙏🏻 🐍🖤
