The no-nonsense guide to getting tattooed! PART 2 – During

In our first instalment, I talked to you guys about the ‘before’ process in getting your tattoo.

It probably frustrated a lot of people that I didn’t get into the real meat of actually getting tattooed, but I wouldn’t have felt comfortable without laying the whole process out, I wouldn’t have been giving you the whole picture.

So today let’s focus on the super fun and pretty painful bit! ‘During’!


I shouldn’t really have to say this at all. As a responsible adult, who has taken the time to get to this point and book your appointment, you should WANT to be there on time!

Being late creates all kinds of problems for yourself and your tattoo artist. If you’re rushing and get there late, you’re going to create a bit of tension from the offset, and work yourself up. This isn’t good, as you’re spending the next few hours with this person tattooing your skin. You don’t want to create an awkward environment, or make your tattoo artist think you’re not as serious as you should be about your appointment.

If you think you are going to be late, for whatever reason, just call ahead and let your artist know. Then apologise when you get there. Artists understand that there are some things you just can’t control, but if you give them the heads up, they can be sure you are still coming, and you’re not going to be a no-show.


Unless previously agreed with your artist, it’s not usually a good idea to bring friends with you to watch you get tattooed.

Having friends and family present can be distracting for both yourself and your tattoo artist. Your guest may feel the need to give their opinion on the design of your tattoo, or may create an atmosphere that puts the artist under great pressure.

I feel most comfortable when I turn up to my appointments alone, as I can really connect with my tattoo artist and create a very personal experience.


Your artist will have to set up for your appointment, so you may have a little wait at the studio. There will sometimes be a selection of tattoo magazines for you to flick through, and you may even be offered a cup of tea while you wait. Modern tattoo studios are very welcoming places, and nothing like the stereotypical, intimidating, testosterone filled shops of the past.

Your artist will show you a line drawing of your tattoo around this point.. They want to know whether this is what you had in mind, and they want you to be honest. If you have communicated with your artist well up to this point, it will be everything you hoped for and more!

If there are elements that you would like to change, your tattoo artists needs to know this. They are aware that this piece is on you forever, and they want to give you the best! Things like sizing, positioning of small elements like background flowers etc, colour choices, wording positioning and the actual positioning of the tattoo on your body, can all be tweaked a little before you start. Please don’t be afraid of asking for something like this to be changed!

If you find you totally hate the design (which is very unlikely if you have done your research), then you must still say something. It’s likely in this case that you would have to re-arrange your appointment, and you may lose your deposit. Please do not argue with your tattoo artist about this, they need time to make sure they get your vision right!

When you are happy with your design, it’s time to apply the carbon paper transfer to your skin! At this point, it all gets pretty real, and nerves may kick in…


These days, I’m usually excited about getting tattooed. I tend to prepare myself for the inevitable pain by just letting myself get super stoked about the design itself!

If this is your first tattoo, I’m not going to tell you it doesn’t really hurt, or it’s not as bad as you think (because I don’t know what you are thinking) But I will say, it’s really not the worst pain in the world. At all. You can deal with it, and as soon as it’s over, you will forget all about it.

If you feel you are panicking, faint, nervous or sick, please tell your artist immediately. They will only start your tattoo when they know you are comfortable. Take a breather, pop to the loo, make sure you are comfy in the chair and keep yourself calm.

During your tattoo, you may find there are a number of things you can do to distract from the pain. I like to count things, like ceiling tiles or floorboards, I don’t know why it works, but it does! I also find that watching the artist working on the tattoo calms me down, but I guess that makes me weird because most other people I know HATE watching it. Just do what you think is best!


Some of the time, you may find that an artist doesn’t seem to say much. This is because a lot of artists take their cues from you, as their customer. They do not want to distract or upset you by talking to you, if you don’t deal well with conversation whilst being tattooed. Don’t let this put you off starting a conversation though, as conversation is one of the best ways of managing pain and creating a distraction for you.

I will mention at this point, that a real studio doesn’t work like the ones you see on those tattoo ‘reality’ TV shows. You’re artist is not there to be your therapist, and it can be a little odd for them to have to listen to someone pour their heart out, and explain their reasons for getting a tattoo. If you want to talk about it, that’s great, but try keep it light and concise. On TV, the customers share their long and elaborate stories for the benefit of the cameras and the audience at home. There are no cameras here, so you really don’t have to lay it on thick.

Have a laugh and a joke, or sit in the peaceful quiet. Either is good, just make sure you are doing everything you can do to create a positive and awesome atmosphere!


Need a pee? Need to wiggle your fingers, stretch your arm/leg/torso or take a five minute breather? Let your artist know! They can’t read your mind, and they want you to be as comfortable as possible whilst they work on your tattoo.

It can be hard, but it’s best to keep as still as possible while the artist is actually working on your skin. Moving a little to get comfortable is fine, but usually it is best if you let them know you need to reposition yourself.

It is important to remember that there is absolutely no need to cause a scene for attention. Your artist is already giving you and your tattoo all of their attention, and it is actually very distracting for them if you wiggle , scream, squeal, shriek and cry for dramatic effect. In the long run, if you squirm around and cause the tattooist to have to stop and start the whole way through, you may end up having to pay more, as the tattoo took longer than expected. Try to keep those yelps and wriggles to yourself, it’s in your best interests to stay still and try not to whinge and be negative!


There’s nothing wrong with asking questions, but please be aware of what you are asking. It’s fine to enquire about things, but most tattoo artists find it distracting and unsettling if customers ask questions about brands of ink, types of machines, and other industry specific paraphernalia.

They know you are just curious, but they may want to keep some things to themselves. If you want to know about the sterilisation of equipment, and issues that affect you as the customer, your tattoo artist will be happy to speak to you about these aspects, and I would be worried if they didn’t want to.

Tattooing is an art form, and an incredibly difficult industry to get started in. It is very likely your tattoo artist has worked hard to collect knowledge and learn about tattooing specifics, and it is not really the ‘done thing’ in the industry to then impart this closely guarded knowledge willy nilly on everyone who asks.


When your tattoo is done, your artist will explain the aftercare process to you. You need to listen to their advice and follow it to the letter. If you do not feel the advice they have given is adequate, please ask them to explain or elaborate, so you can really understand the best way to care for your healing tattoo.


ALWAYS say thank you, that’s just good manners!


You should always bring plenty of money with you to pay for your tattoo. If you have been given a quote, try bring a little more, just in case. This means you can avoid embarrassing and unnecessary trips to a nearby cash point after your tattoo!

When the time is right, your artist may ask you to move to the reception area to make you payment, or wait until you indicate that you are ready. It can be a little awkward at this point, as paying for a tattoo is nothing like buying something from a shop, but I usually say something like ‘what’s the damage?’, ‘let’s square up!’ or simply ‘how much do I owe you?’. Keeping it light stops it from being awkward.

It is not compulsory to tip your tattoo artist, but it is polite and nice. Obviously it’s not always easy to afford this, as you may have had to save very long and hard to pay for the tattoo itself, but if you do have enough to say an extra ‘thank you’, it can be a great way of letting your artist know how much you appreciate their hard work, and it also helps to build a relationship with your artist. Everyone likes to be appreciated! It’s totally your call, but please at least consider it!

That’s all for the time being, check back in a couple of days, when I will share a short guide on the ‘After’ aspects of your tattoo!

Thanks for reading!

Part 2 coming soon!

Hey all!

Just a quick post to let you know that the second part of my ‘no-nonsense’ guide to getting tattooed is coming soon!

I originally promised it for this evening, but I think I underestimated how crappy I would be feeling after my tattoo, my brain is not capable of a decent post this evening, and I only want to bring you my best!

I thought I would include a little picture of my new piece by Miles Welby-Jenkins, at End Times studio in Leeds!



It’s one i’ve been wanting for about a year, so I am pleased I FINALLY have it. It’s an adaptation of an original from William Grimshaw flash.

Thanks again to Miles! Now if you don’t mind, i’m going to sit in the dark and not think about anything because this tattoo has taken far more of a toll on me than I expected!

I’m jotting down my part 2 post in rough tomorrow, so it’ll be here soon!

The no-nonsense guide to getting tattooed! PART 1 – Before


In this three part post, I thought I would talk about tattoos, because I love them, I have them and I am just about to get another!

What I REALLY want to attempt is a very simple, very straight-talking guide, to getting tattooed. I’m not just talking how to get what you want, what you should expect and how much you should pay, I’m also going to be brutally honest about how to be a good customer, how to trust your artist, and whether you really should be getting that tattoo at all!

The ‘before’ steps…


Just ask yourself ‘why?’. Why do you want a tattoo.. disregard what the design is for a second, sit and think long and hard about that shit being permanent, and then ask again, why?

A lot of people wouldn’t expect me to say that. A lot of people want me to go ‘oh hey yeah, get tattooed, it’s the best ever’. But here’s why I won’t do that…. The only answer to the question ‘why?’ should be ‘for myself’.

Any reputable tattooist would never coerce or persuade you into getting tattooed, and any good friend wouldn’t either. Put simply, if you are asking the artist, or a friend, five minutes before the needle hits the skin ‘do you think I should get this?’ then you absolutely shouldn’t get it. You need to be 100% sure in your own head, without seeking approval first, that this is what you absolutely want to do.


By golly, this is a difficult one. Chances are, if you have no idea what to get as a tattoo, you really need to leave it be for a while, and wait until the inspiration comes to you. Don’t try seek something out just for the sake of getting it tattooed, I speak from experience, that you do not want to be left with two hearts’n’crossbones on your hips because you just wanted SOMETHING.

On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with getting a GOOD piece of flash tattooed. (Flash is the name given to the sheets of designs that hang in tattoo artists studios). By good, I mean a well sourced, well researched piece of flash. If you know what you like, chances are you know which artists flash to look for, and if you know who you want to get tattooed by (usually because you already like their style), there could be a piece of flash by them just waiting to adorn your skin. Generally though, it isn’t a great idea to walk into any old studio and just pick something. Do your research!!

I can’t tell you what to get tattooed, I can tell you what I think works, and what doesn’t work, what I think will be timeless, and what will date in five minutes, but ultimately, it’s up to you, and my opinions are just that.. opinions. I am no authority on tattoos, I don’t claim to be and I don’t want to be, but I won’t deny that I am somewhat informed.

You should probably avoid anything fad-like or something that will only be significant in the very near future. ‘Fashions’ in tattoos come and go, and have never made any sense to me. A tattoo is a very personal thing, so getting something because a celebrity has it, or a lot of other people have it, really isn’t a good reason.

There are a myriad of different styles of tattoo.. black and grey, traditional American, Japanese, realistic, abstract, bio-mechanical, tribal, new school… the list is pretty much endless, and it’s your choice, and ultimately yours alone as to what you want BUT….


If you have done your research carefully, and have chosen someone because you value their artistic vision, have faith in their technical ability and totally adore their work, then please, for the love of whatever god you do or do not believe in, just LISTEN TO THEM!!

If you have picked a truly great artist, then your tattoo artist knows best in terms of design, and the technical aspects of your tattoo. They know how close the lines can be, so it doesn’t turn into a blue blob in five years, they know whether something will look confusing if you try and add too many elements, they know that most of the time, subtlety can work wonders. If you disagree with anything your artist is trying to tell you regarding the design or technical elements of your tattoo, please don’t demand the tattoo ‘your way’, instead go away and think about it, or source a different tattoo artist to realise your vision.

I will mention here, that I realise if you have been looking at a design you want that you have seen on the internet, or in a book, or that a friend has drawn for you, that you will most likely want it to look EXACTLY how it does on paper. I can promise you though, that is not practical.

Many tattoo artists have to politely explain to customers that getting a design exactly as it appears on paper, or exactly how it was drawn by someone who isn’t a tattoo artist, isn’t a good idea. Put simply, your tattoo artist knows how a design will flow with the curves of your body, they know what kind of line thickness will be needed to achieve the best results, and they know how big and detailed they are physically able to go with something without it looking weird. Please be open to interpretations of your design, and work with your artist to create something that will really work on your body. I guarantee you, you will love it more than the original image!


I am not about to tell you how much your tattoo should cost. I would never, ever attempt to do that. If you are totally new to getting tattooed, and you are worried because you have no idea what a reasonable price is, do your research and find well trusted, technically great artists to look into. Any decent artist would never hike the price up for a new customer, it’s bad for the industry and bad for their business personally, every good tattooer will quote you a reasonable price from the off.

I have had many conversations with people about the price of my tattoos, just as a hint though, it is a very rude question to ask someone.. you are essentially saying ‘how much money do you have?’.

There’s a saying, that translates perfectly to what you can expect for your money from a tattoo artists price quote. ‘Cheap work ain’t good, and good work ain’t cheap’. Be prepared to spend good money on that thing you so desperately want on your body forever, or you will quickly regret it!

Oh, and please understand.. Paying a deposit is not only normal, but extremely important. Your tattoo artist is committed to giving you the best tattoo they can, they need to know you are committed to getting it. Pay the deposit, don’t be difficult about it, and expect that if you cancel without adequate notice you will lose that deposit.

Please bear in mind that you are not just paying for the time it takes for the artist to expertly craft that tattoo into your skin. You also pay for their experience, their years of learning and knowledge that is being used to create something beautiful on your skin, the hours it takes to research to perfect reference material, the faffy task of placing orders for supplies, the lack of social life because of their dedication to the craft, the draft after draft of design, custom made for you, and the time taken to create a final drawing, which leads me onto..


No one likes to be awoken at 1am by text message, when they were just trying to sleep. I’m pretty sure tattoo artists don’t like it either, but I know it happens. Don’t be that customer who texts, emails and calls into the studio, weeks before your appointment, to ‘have a look’ at the design.

Tattoo artists are busy people, the chances are, they haven’t even thought about your final design yet. A lot of artists draw up final designs just a day or two before your appointment. I appreciate this tattoo is important to you, but your artist has other clients, and is constantly working, they will get to your design when the time comes. This doesn’t mean they don’t care, they are simply doing their job.

If you need to constantly ask to see the design, this means that trust we talked about earlier isn’t there, and you need to re-think whether this is the right artist for you. Talking of re-thinking…


Think about how long it’s taken on this blog post, for us to get to this point, and I still haven’t even mentioned anything about what happens when you actually get tattooed. Now imagine that all these things we have been through on this post, have actually happened and you have been planning, and have booked in, your tattoo. It can be a fairly long process, a fairly long and sometimes scary process, but it would be a great shame to spoil all the build up now by not showing up for your tattoo.

There are many reasons people don’t show up… fear, lack of funds, family disapproval, unable to get time off, etc.. but there is NO excuse for it (aside from maybe sudden hospitalisation or violent illness, but don’t lie… that shit’s just plain wrong)

Every tattoo artist would rather you let them know the very second you decide you won’t be able to make it, and also the reason. If you are scared, an artist would rather have the opportunity to put your mind at ease, and still be able to create that beautiful artwork for you, if you are broke, you need to suck that shit up, forget your pride, and be honest. Whatever the reason, you simply HAVE to tell them if you can’t make it.

Not turning up to your appointment is the equivalent of your work phoning you to say they don’t need you to go to work, and they won’t be paying you. Tattoo artists have rent to pay, they pay bills, they have to feed themselves, they also may have families to support, projects to fund or simply nice things they are saving up for. Please remember that!

If you let your artist know with enough time to spare, they may be able to move your appointment, instead of cancelling it, they will be able to book someone else in, so they still earn money that day, and most importantly for you, you won’t lose your deposit.


You’re almost ready for your tattoo! In part two, I will talk you through what to expect at your appointment, how to behave in the studio, and how to make the whole experience really enjoyable for you and your artist! Stay tuned, and if you have any questions for me, please ask!

Review! Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid!


It’s been ages and ages since I have done a beauty review, and that’s mainly because it’s been ages since I’ve been properly updating the blog (when will I ever stop apologising for that? probably never!)

Looking back at my last review I have noticed how my makeup technique has changed. Thanks to my wonderful make-up artist friend Charli XO, I picked up some tips and tricks and have come on leaps and bounds with my eyebrows especially, but that is a post for another day!

Today I will be focusing on the Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid I got recently when I painted nails at an Illamasqua shopping event (more on that later! and yes, it was super exciting!).



The colour I opted for is called ‘Forbidden’ and you can see (and buy) it on the Illamasqua website here.

I have always had great trouble finding lipstick that stays on my lips, and doesn’t just go all over these goofy teeth of mine, or come off my lips all together! I decided to give this lip liquid a try after I popped a swatch on my hand, and after leaving it to dry, noticed it didn’t budge at all! If i’m honest, I never expected it to work wonders, because lipsticks very rarely stay on me for very long, but boy was I surprised!

I applied this at around 9am, whilst getting ready for work, it took two coats to get the super solid look in the picture above. My first coat was quite light, and I rubbed my lips together a little, and my second coat was to really pile on the colour and define the lip shape.

The application brush is PERFECT! I found it really easy to get a super flattering cupids bow, with other lipsticks, glosses and pencils, I have always found I end up looking like I have wonky lips! And can we talk for a second about the packaging? That super cute crystal clear tube makes the product seem candy-like and looks simply delicious!

Within minutes of applying, I noticed the lip liquid had dried to matte. This was a strange sensation at first, i’ll admit, simply because I have never tried matte lip colours before, but once I got used to it, I felt super confident that this colour wasn’t going anywhere for a while, and especially, NOT on my teeth (you guys, that is such a huge deal for me!)

I will say though, I think next time I wear this, I will moisturise my lips a little first, but that is simply because my lips are so dry anyway, it didn’t help to make the lip liquid look as good as it could have done. I didn’t really feel that the product itself had any kind of drying affect on my lips at all.

I ate breakfast (a banana) at around 10.15am, and didn’t have to re-apply after this. I then lasted until 1pm without thinking about my lip situation at all, because I felt so comfortable that I still had such a solid look. After my lunch, I re-applied once, at around 1.30pm, and then really didn’t have to think about it again until I went to see my boyfriend at 6pm, when I just added a quick coat to brighten up the colour. If I hadn’t been going anywhere after work, that would have been the day over for my lip liquid at 6pm, and I would have only had to re-apply once!

I would say that this is, without a doubt, the perfect lip product for me. I am so in love with the vibrancy of the colour, as that reflects my character so well, and the staying power is a big plus point from me. It’s ideal if you work in a kind of job where you can’t be nipping off to re-apply make up all the time, and you want to know you look awesome, without having to constantly check for smudges! I just really want them to make this in every colour imaginable now, especially slime green!!

An all-round wonder product, if you ask me!

I know other matte and velvet lip products exist out there, does anyone have any recommendations? what are your favourite trusty, stay-put lip essentials?

That’s all for now!

I Wore This! 25/06/14


Today I’m bringing you a super cool outfit post from Wednesday!

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing outfit posts again, part of me always feels something of a phony, as I don’t really see myself as all that stylish, but I do enjoy putting fun little looks together, and it was always nice to document those looks previously!

Here is what I wore on Wednesday!



You may all notice that I now have a fringe, and that the rest of my hair is ridiculously long, oh and that the ends are green… basically it’s super different, but I love it like this more than any other hairstyle I have had! It was done by the amazing Rachel at the Leeds branch of Philips Hair Academy, and I can’t recommend her enough!

Onto the outfit! I love this one as it makes me feel like a super cute slime princess!

My dungaree dress and scrunchie were both from the shop I manage in Leeds, Pop Boutique. The dress was £18 and the scrunchie was £3.50, both absolute bargains!

My T-Shirt was from a Topshop sale, about a year ago, but you could always opt for something like this from Etsy seller Killer Condo, and use any of the hundreds of ombre clothing dye tutorials on Youtube for the desired effect! The gist of it is, mix up a tub of dye, dip your garment in from the bottom, and hold it in the dye in sections, moving up the shirt. This will mean the dye is more concentrated at the bottom, as that section will have been in the longest. (okay, so I totally didn’t explain that very well!)

My leggings are trusty H&M. I did used to opt for Primark leggings, as they are dirt cheap. But with a reduced price comes reduced quality. quite often the Primark leggings just looked semi transparent, and that really isn’t the look I am going for.

I must admit, however, that my shoes and socks are from Primark. The shoes were £8, which is a good job because they are the stupidest purchase I have ever made. I don’t know when I ever thought I would be able to keep white canvas shoes clean.

Finally, my jewellery is just stuff that I have had forever. The collar has been around since I was about 15! I know for a fact that these collars can be bought in any good heavy metal/goth type shops for about a fiver. My long necklace just has a simple fake gem on it (which I’ve just realised you can’t see!), and I found this similar one from Etsy seller Hanging By A Thread, for just over £16!

Thanks for checking out my outfit post! I’ll post more from now on, and if you have any questions for me, feel free to ask in the comments below!

New Project: The Paperchain Pen Pal Club

Hi all!

It’s been a while, and for that I apologise! I’m certainly not made of the right stuff to be a full time professional blogger, that’s for sure! But I will try my best to keep this more up to date now.. starting with my latest project!!

I have loved writing letters, ever since I was a tiny girl, and I still adore the postman bringing me lovingly hand written goodies.

I had been writing to my best friend on and off for a while, since she lives in another city, but recently wanted to collect an assortment of pen pals from all over the globe. I thought how cool would it be to have a service that would match up awesome letter-writing creative types from a carefully curated database? Then I thought, there’s no point waiting around for someone to do it… I SHOULD DO IT! Ans so… The Paperchain Pen Pal Club is born!

It’s in its very early stages now, and currently I need to collect as many members as possible, so there is lots of variety to choose from.

If you are interested in joining The Paperchain Pen Pal Club, please email and supply your address for post, some details about yourself (likes, dislikes, hobbies etc), a brief description of what you are looking for in a pen pal (e.g. similar, opposite, specific hobbies etc) and how many pen pals you would like to be writing to as a maximum.

To start with I will be capping membership at 50, to make it a little more special and close knit, but if it is a success, then who knows!

I have 8 pen pals personally, and tonight I wrote my first letter to my most recent pen pal!


With all this correspondence coming through, I thought it would be a good idea to arrange a system so I would know when it was my turn to send, and when I would be waiting for a reply. I took an old corkboard that I had painted bright pink from a previous project, and added some decorative elements to the top (favourite postcards, paper letter banner and a photograph of me and a maid from a maid cafe in Tokyo). I then created headers of ‘sent’ and ‘received’, so I would know when I should be replying and when I have already sent out, and little markers for each of my pen pals (Japanese patterned papers with their names written on). My mum bought me the awesome button themed push pins, and they really tie the whole thing together!


Stay tuned for more on my letter writing adventures, such as how I organise addresses, and my letter writing supplies, and also keep your eyes peeled for the fashion posts starting back up again alongside some craft items and articles!

Style Swoon! Spotted Shopping – Zophie and Emmy

So my Summer blogging didn’t happen as frequently as I had hoped, and it seems we are already in Autumn. Boohoo! 

I did, however, take some snaps of some very stylish individuals to share with you lovely lot! 

First up is the wonderful Zophie! 



Such a perfectly put together outfit! 

Zophie came into Pop in the Summer and I instantly fell in love with her kawaii Japanese inspired style. I asked her to pose for me and soon discovered she has an equally adorable personality to boot! 

Some key pieces from Zophie’s outfit that I would like to pick up on are her handbag and her shoes!

I am a huge fan of a see-through bag, I find there’s something that takes me back to the 90’s with clear coloured plastic that get’s me all nostalgic. I looked on Etsy and found a couple of examples, sport one of these and be in plastic paradise! (click pictures for more details!!)

Image Image

Zophie’s shoes are Adidas x Jeremy Scott… I don’t know much about trainers, and I won’t pretend to know, but I do know I love every single one of the designs by Jeremy Scott for Adidas. They’re a tad on the pricey side for my budget, but one day I would love to own a pair.. For now though, here are some sneakers that give off that same kawaii vibe..



All these sneakers are from Schuh, and are just as bold a statement as those amazing Adidas beauties!

I loved Zophie’s style so much I have recently asked her to answer some interview questions and send us some style snaps.. Here’s hoping she says yes! 


Next up is the gorgeous Emmy…



Such a beauty! 

Emmy has been shopping in Pop for a while now, and we always have a lovely little chat every time she visits. She works for Topshop, specialising in denim, and is incredibly good fun! Just check out her 90’s inspired unicorn outfit here!

My favourite item is of course, that amazing jumper, which Emmy told me she found in a charity shop! I don’t know where these magical awesome charity shops are, but I am yet to find something THAT cool!

To continue the shoe theme, I took a close up of Emmy’s gorgeous black and white creepers, which finish off her outfit perfectly and look simple and stylish with micro fishnets. Here are some similar picks..



Both styles available from T.U.K



That’s all for now folks! Be sure to check back more regularly from now on as I have lot’s of exciting posts up my sleeve! 

Once again, don’t forget.. if you have any suggestions or requests for me please don’t hesitate to email me: and I will address your questions/ suggestions/ abuse on the blog!
