It’s Valentines Day apparently, when we are forced upon the idea that we should all be in happy couples living together and giving each other copious amounts of junk to prove how much we love each other and to show other people how happy we
could be are. But I actually think it is maybe just a nice time to remind yourself that you should give yourself some love. Maybe give some other folk some love afterwards too. I don’t think it’s about selling out or buying a girl or guy flowers or material crap to win their love, (although if you have done so already, I’ll take ’em)
No, instead of all that rubbish, I’m loving myself today by going to get a sweet new tattoo from my mate Annmarie Shand at The Ink Pad, in Saltcoats :

Plus I’m working all weekend so I’m just gonna have a great time dancing away to live music and having a laugh with all the punters 🙂
Annmarie’s an excellent artist and has done lots of work on me in the past year.
She did this piece on my arm, way back in December:
And more recently she did the neck piece ( the rose) that you can see in the first photo. She’s brilliant and I’d really recommend her, and although she has only been tattooing for a year, I love everything that she has done. She’s also great banter and you can’t beat a wee seaside train trip to Saltcoats! Patrick, who owns the shop is a brilliant artist too,so I would definitely check out both of their work if you are thinking of getting some ink work done!
The shop is literally only 3 minutes walk from Saltcoats train station and you need to book an appointment first.
I will post photos very soon of what I’m getting done today!
Remember to do whatever makes you happy today (and everyday) and don’t judge others for doing what makes them happy and gonna just go and share a wee smile and a dance with some folk tonight please?! That shit’s infectious!
Spread that love!
This day IS about love but not just in a couple/ soul mate sense, this is about loving yourself, your parents, your pals, your pets, strangers even.
Love yourself pal, you’re gorgeous and unique and don’t need someone else to buy you something to realise that. Just listen in to what people say to you, they’re probably telling you a lot of the time. 🙂
Much love to you and yours and thanks for taking the time out to read! Love Morvs x
