I am back blogging here after some time off where I was busy traveling, working tattoo conventions all over the U.S, tattooing, painting, doing photoshoots, and other many projects that I will share with you on those pages. So stay tuned cause we've been busy here at Lea's Lounge!
I'd like to share with you guys that Calendar Venture I have been on this year.
I would like to thank all of you that purchased the Calendar. Than you for supporting The art of Tattooing, as that is what you are doing when you buy one of those calendars.
We have been shipping 2013 Lea Vendetta Calendars all over the world: Japan, all over Europe, all over the US!! It has been a Great Success.
This month of February is the last month the Lea Vendetta will be for Sale, so if you do not have yours yet, this is your chance to! The price is $30 and includes S+H
It is a beautiful 11"x17" Artfully done Calendar. this is not your cheap average looking calendar, when I did this project I wantd to make sure that everything was going to be a full pro and Artfully done Piece, because that's what I'm about. So it is a really nice and classic piece to hang on your wall.
All the photos were taken by the Famous and o so talented Robert Alvarado,

I hope you guys will enjoy the calendar, and for those of you who already have it hanging on your wall, I hope you are enjoying and that You will keep enjoying it all year long.

When I started my career back in the 1990’s, I had an advantage for my trade with education in art and technique. However, tattooing skin was another medium altogether, a really hard one for many different factors but mainly because of its permanence. The skin is breathing, ever-changing organic matter. You can white out a canvas, but a tattoo is forever. There is no room for error when you’re working with the ink that will change someone’s life.
. You'll learn about Tattoo History
· And you’ll learn how to apply a tattoo
*One of the traditional way of getting an apprenticeship is to find a tattooist you love, get a lot of tattoos by them, then once you begin to know them and when the time is right bring your portfolio and ask them about an apprenticeship. This will most likely open doors for you as you have already proved you loved your future teacher's work by getting tattooed by them. It will show them you are serious.
What do you think? Don't forget to comment for a chance to win one of the calendars!

So I'm adding to the new modeling page on www.leaslounge.com and those new pictures come from the Uber Talented Andy Hartmark( http://andyhartmarkphoto.smugmug.com/ ).
We did those in L.A this year and Andy was as cool as his work!! It was great meeting him and I hope I'll have the pleasure to work with him again in the near future! The whole team there was so fun to work with! This photoshoot was done for "Purrfect Pineapples" a 'Sur Mesure'(custom) Corset Company. Not only is the lingerie fun and stylish with mega style, but on top of that all the materials used are guaranteed vegan!
I love Erika! She is one cool chick! Check them out at http://www.purrfectpineapples.com/ The whole team there was great, I'll talk more about that day tomorrow...gotta go to work!
So we updated the site and added a modeling page where you will be able to see some of the modeling work I've done, as well as tattooing and painting, and competing on an extremely challenging Tattoo competition for Spike TV!
I do need my beauty sleep to sling all that work and I rarely get it..but above are some of the photos that we added to the modeling page today. The beautiful pictures are thanks to Jonathan Dvoretz. ( www.Jonathandvoretz.com) Inked Girls Magazine (July-August 2011) published this beautiful set of pictures that Jonathan and his talented team took in a deserted swampalicious Florida outdoor location. Everything was perfect that day, it allowed for a beautiful flowing photoshoot. That day even the gators were there posing! I almost went for a swim with them..ask Jon! ;)
Meanwhile you can go check out the contestants and the "Inkmaster" news at: inkmaster.spike.com and here is the trailor for the show!

It announces the brutal battle that is about to unfold before your eyes. I am both excited and pretty much terrified of what is about to happen as I have no editing power and didnt see any of the episodes! So I will be watching those with as much surprise as you all will. Whatever happens be kind guys, all the contestants are experienced talented tattooists that basically went thru some hardcore sometime hellish times to deliver to you this "piece of entertainment"and they all are AMAZING...we also had some really good times! Thank God! :)
I hope you will all enjoy the show!
