I completely started a trend at SouthBy this year. I didn’t mean to, it just happened!

We were headed to the Red Eyed Fly for the Fray Cafe Sunday evening. Walked past this fabulous tattoo parlor and decided just to go check it out. Called True Blue Tattoo, it had a very cool vibe and best of all it was relatively empty. Mind you, 8 pm on a Sunday evening, and I suspose that’s to be expected.

I’ve wanted to get Latin for breathe on my wrist for a while now. Spur of the moment decision, on Sunday night, I got it done. Quite small, inside my wrist, and in a great script, i now sport new ink “inspire”. Totally love it. I was with Greg and he decided to get a tattoo as well, and began designing his while waiting for me. Justin, whom I met through Twitter and then face to face at the Sundance Film Festival this year called while I was waiting to get it done and came over to watch and be my official photographer. He went and got his done on Monday night. Greg went back to Jim at True Blue and got his done on Tuesday night.


Definitely not the souvenier I expected to bring home from SxSWi, but hey, it rocks!
