I’m sitting in 
a familiar spot
today. I
was here yesterday 
too. They’re
drawing 
more blood 
running 
more tests. 
More brows furrow 
I can almost hear 
their thoughts
“why bother”
None of this 
is for me 
but it 
is all mine, 
my responsibility, 
my burden. 
I once got 
a fortune cookie. 
The fortune told me 
my burdens are
my blessings 
and at first
I laughed 
and then 
I cried 
because it’s so
true. What 
will I do 
without this
blessing? 
Every time 
we come here 
I have to decide 
if this is 
the time 
I let myself freak 
out and lose 
my shit 
and show how
scared I am. 
Instead I 
crack jokes about 
being a 
frequent flyer 
and how hard it is 
to get to the veins 
in her arms,
ravaged by scar tissue. 
I look at 
her arms, 
bruise tattooed
up and down 
and wonder if 
my arms 
will be like that
one day. 
I wonder if 
I will be my 
children’s
blessing.

    Last weekend @cutiggs27 brought back from New Orleans an artistic rendering of our friend Christen and Amy’s beloved pet Yorkie.  Must’ve been some new art thing, painted with knuckles. #sullysweekend #yorkies #bruisetattoo

    A couple years back I got to design and tattoo this awesome Wonder Woman Roller Derby piece for my friend Tara. Being a fierce lady in reality, Tara is not just a roller derby fan but a derby player as well. Today she sent me this pic and it was such a crazy bruise I figured you would like to see it. It actually looks pretty cool since the tattoo didn't visibly bruise, only the surrounding skin. 😊 #wonderwomantattoo #rollerderbygirls #rollerderbytattoo #bruisetattoo
