   I’ve been wanting to feature the beautiful and amazing Rhonda Burnett for awhile and today is finally the day. I’ve known Rhonda for over three years and I refer to as my “Big Sister,” because she is just that. She is very nurturing, giving, and one of the kindest and strongest women I know. She also loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky as much as I do which is never a bad thing.

   Besides all the sweet qualities Rhonda has, she has the most amazing and sickest tattoos I’ve ever seen. She loves horror, especially Tim Burton and a lot of her ink are Burton characters which I absolutely am in love with. You can’t go wrong with Tim Burton in my opinion.

   She had a lot of ink done when I first met her and has gotten a lot more done since I’ve known her and I must say that all of her tattoos are well thought out as to where she wants them and what exactly she wants done. I love her attention to detail. Rhonda’s ink is so amazing that she has won awards for it and has been published in magazines which you can see below. Even her references are very specific to her style and don’t look like anyone else’s. Check out these photos and clips of her spectacular tattoos!

   Here is a little background how the gorgeous Rhonda fell in love with the horror genre and specifically Tim Burton films. 

 “When I was 5 my uncle Tom got me into classic horror films… My first one was Frankenstein. I called him Frankie because I couldn’t say Frankenstein… And it took off from there. I’ve been into horror every sense. I rented the movie The nightmare before Christmas for my sons and I to watch and fell in love with it.. From that point on I got into Tim Burton films.  I got my first sleeve of the nightmare before Christmas movie on my right arm which took about 5 months to complete. Then I went on to get more tattoos of some of my favorite Tim burton movies, like Beetlejuice and Lydia, Edward Scissorhands and Frankenweenie I eventually got a recent portrait of Tim Burton on my leg… I thought to myself I love his movies and him so much I thought I need a tattoo of him on me. So I that was the last tattoo I got. 3 of my tattoos have won numerous awards. I’ll send pictures when I get them all gathered.

I really like to dress up during the month of October into some of my favorite characters. My Edward Scissorhands tattoo was featured in Inc skin magazine as well as my Nightmare Before Christmas sleeve.”   -Rhonda

   Besides all the sisterly qualities she has that I mentioned above, Rhonda is also extremely artistic and can do her makeup to completely change her look and can make herself look like she stepped out of the movies which I absolutely love. I can’t get over her makeup skills and talent and if her and I lived closer together, we’d be doing our makeup together every day. Below are just some of the many looks she has created. It’s just a tiny taste. If I could I would post a lot more of her photos than I already have. I love showcasing other people’s talent and art, especially when it’s someone that I really love.

   I really admire Rhonda. She has such a kind and beautiful soul and is all about working hard and family which she loves more than anything else which is so beautiful. She also supports her friends and the work that they do, including myself and my art which I greatly appreciate. I also appreciate how much she loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky which is never a bad thing.

Urban Decay Jean Michel Basquiat Tutorial

I was so excited to receive my amazing Urban Decay palette with the brand new Basquiat  “Tenat” eye shadow palette. I loved doing this makeup artistic tutortial and hope you enjoy it too.

  The artist Basquiat really inspired me  when I was attending THE ACARDEMY ART  UNIVERSITY in San Francisco. From the  New York grafitti he did as art, to promoting and working in galleries, and of course his relationship with Andy Warhol.

 

 

Jean Michel Basquiat first achieved  fans as part of “Samo,” which was a grafitti  duo who wrote enigmatic  workers of the lower east side of Manhattan. 

By the 1970’s  Basquiat was exhibited with his  neo/expressionist paintings in galleries and musuems.

 

 

He appropriated poetry, drawings, abstract painting and more into his work.

They made a film called, Basquiat in 1996 which includes Jeffrey Wright who played the main character, David Bowie as Andy Warhol, Gary Oldman, Benicio del Toro, and more popular characters, including a  Courtney Love cameo. It’s a fantastic film to see this artist’s journey and I definitely recommend it if you haven’t see it yet.

Getting Ready for Vegas

  Here’s a little video I just did getting ready and excited for my trip to Las Vegas in a few days. I always love going to Vegas but this trip I’m super excited to go on so I can get some new awesome ink from my pal Dirk Vermin. Been planning on doing this for awhile and so happy I have time this week to do it. I’ll definitely be taking a lot of photos and vids during the trip but want to videotape a little prequel. 

From Dirk to Carlie

I’ve been a great fan of Dirk Vermin and his art and tattoo work for awhile now and have become good online friends for the past few months. If you haven’t already, check out the blog post I did of him and Bettie Page where I won a few of his older art comic books which are amazing. This morning I woke up to a really sweet and nice video he sent me which definitely put a smile on my face. He is such a cool guy and I’m so glad I met him and am looking forward to my next Las Vegas trip to see him, have a drink (or two), and definitely get some new ink from him. I’m excited! Thank you again Dirk! You rock as always!
