Just as there are no two snowflakes alike, so should the tattoos. That’s the idea, but who are we kidding? In a time where most people feel the need to share every single thing on social media, the chances of you having anything original is pretty slim. This and the fact that I cannot draw, have lowered my expectations when it comes to getting an original tattoo design. But what if you could get someone to tweak a design for you? Isn’t that option a lot better than having something permanent on your body that is 100% an imitation? Such promise is the very thing that lured me to get a tattoo by Sarah Gaugler of Snow Tattoo.
It was one of those days when all I wanted was to vanish and forget about everything work related. So I stepped out and went for a break, and ended up at Seattle’s Best. This one is just behind PBCom Tower but in my two years in Makati, it was the first time I’d been there.
That night I was donned in high-low black dress, white bejeweled strappy high heels, and I brought my orange purse. I curled my locks, painted my lips red, and wore an expensive perfume. I looked every bit a woman who is about to meet a man for a night of romantic rendezvous… only I wasn’t. That night I was with my good friend, Imee and since we picked a swanky place for our Christmas dinner, we thought we should dress the part. The posh place in question? Sala Bistro in Greenbelt.
