   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.

My Heavy Metal Horror Sister Angela, (part 2)

Image-1 (1)

Like I said in my previous post, here’s my sister Angela with her amazing makeup looks and tattoos. For her makeup, one is of her as Marilyn Manson, one as the Pinup Dollface killer from the movie, “The Strangers,” and as Captain Spaulding from the movie, “House of 1000 Corpses.” She did her looks all herself and I’m hoping to do a tutorial with her in the future.

For her tattoos, I love all the horror movie ink she has had done. Also her spooky sexy Halloween chest piece is absolutely amazing and didn’t have it when I did her first feature here. It’s one of her newer works of art and I’m absolutely in love with it.

My trip to Las Vegas

  This past Wednesday, I left to take my mini jaunt to Las Vegas. Coincidentally, it was the same day that all the Southwest airline systems and computers crashed causing a horrible delay for all the flights. It was very frustrating but I managed to finally get to Vegas about three hours later then planned. When I touched down in Vegas, I immediately went to the MGM Grand Hotel to check in. After waiting in the check in line for about 45 minutes, I FINALLY got my room key. I was so exhausted and was very happy to get to my room where I watched “Deadpool,” on the movie station and ordered myself a lovely room service dinner. It was a nice relaxing evening after a long hot day of traveling which should’ve been a very short and easy trip.

The next morning, I woke up early and treated myself again to room service, a delicious breakfast then got dressed to start my day. About fifteen minutes before ten am, I took a cab over to my friend and amazing artist Dirk Vermin’s tattoo shop, “Pussykat Tattoo,” to get a new tattoo on my rib cage, which was a beautiful Bettie Page portrait that I had chosen. This was to be the highlight of my trip. It was so nice to see him and we talked for a bit before he actually got started on my piece. I had already sent him the exact image I wanted and he and I came up with a great way to do it as well as the right placement on me and look and style of it. We then got started and for the next few hours, Dirk and I had our fun ink session. A few times we had to take breaks, not because I was in a lot of pain, but because of other things, including  fans coming into to meet him, a consultation, and other things. I met some of the other artists that worked at his shop and friends which was fun. Finally about five minutes before my piece was finished, I told him I needed a break because of the pain but it ended up being perfect timing because during that time, Dirk’s fiance’ (and my new friend), Erica came in. I was so happy to finally meet her in person and I instantly loved her. We chatted for awhile and then Dirk finally finished my Bettie Banger piece which turned out beautifully. I was so happy and was immediately in love with my new ink. When we finished, Erica drove me back to my hotel.

That night, Dirk and Erica picked me up to go out and we went to the new “Wahlburgers” restaurant where I met one of Dirk’s friends who worked there who was very nice. The three of us sat the bar and had some yummy cocktails (and shots) and delicious food. I also showed my lovely Bettie off which everyone seemed to like, talked and compared stories with Erica about our men, had one of the bartenders talk to me about different psychobilly bands, and take photos. It was a really fun night and even with the 109 degree weather outside, I had an absolute blast with them. When they later dropped me off at my hotel, I fell asleep because I had an early flight back the next morning.

When I was dropped off at the airport in the morning I was really upset to learn that Southwest was still having a lot of problems and had canceled my flight home. I was able to get another one but into LAX which is not closest to where I live. On top of that, my flight was almost two hours late because of waiting for one of the flight attendants to arrive from another destination. The plane was so hot and uncomfortable that  I was glad it wasn’t a long flight. Finally when I touched down and arrived in Los Angeles and got my ride, I was so happy. It was so nice to get home after what felt like days in the airport.

Besides the airport problems I had, my mini trip to Las Vegas was a lot of fun and I was very happy I had gone out there. Getting my Bettie pinup girl and seeing and going out with my friends was definitely worth the trip. I can’t wait until Dirk and Erica come out to California next and hopefully they will get to meet my man and talk about getting him a new tattoo as well on our next Vegas vacation. A huge thank you again to Dirk!

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. 

I love my friend Dirk Vermin

I just got today another video from Dirk Vermin. In this vid, it made me feel so good cause he knows I’m not just a fan of his, well I still am, haha, but we’ve become good friends now and he said that on his vid so it definitely made me smile, especially after the week I had. 

I’m planning my Las Vegas trip soon and going out with him for lots of drinks and tattoo fun. I’m so glad I met him and he’s been a wonderful friend, supporter of my work, and more. I’ll be seeing him in the fun desert of Vegas soon! 😉
