Antigua, Guatemala

July 30, 2014

Antigua's setting is gorgeous, nestled between 3 volcanoes (Volcan Agua, Volcan Acatenango, and Volcan Fuego). The streets are cobblestones and the buildings that line the streets are multicolored. The town of 45,000 has a beautiful Parque Central (Central Park) which is the gathering place for both locals and visitors. The plaza's famous fountain was built in 1738. Across the street from the park is the Catedral de Santiago which was founded in 1542, damaged by earthquakes many times and only partially rebuilt between 1780 and 1820.

World Tattoo Update

July 28, 2014

I finally got my tattoo updated. However, Greenland and Russia (which was retouched) are still healing. May have more work done in Antigua tomorrow so decided to post it even though not completely healed.

National Enquirer Article

While in India in January 2014 I found out from Mel Collier at Natural Mystic Tattoo that The National Enquirer had contacted him about my tattoo because they wanted to do an article. I never spoke to them and was a bit concerned due to their reputation of "stretching the truth". But actually was happy with most of the article and liked how they incorporated pics of me at various world locations and highlighted that country. ABC's Good Morning America, Fox News, Yahoo and now The National Enquirer. Who would have thought anyone would have cared. I also know it has been in many newspapers around the world including China. Had to be a really slow news week. Haha. Jaja
