Who is Evil Cupcake?

Well for starters, he's not really evil. Just naughty.

I'm an artist inspired heavily be American comics and Japanese pop art. I love simple and sweet designs like Domo-kun and the Neko Burger series. I started brainstorming on a similar simple but cute design I could make my own. Then came along Evil Cupcake or Evee as I like to call him. Something that would evoke the childhood memories of love, pranks on friends, laughter and silliness.

So Evee was born with his black buttercream frosting, skull sprinkles and devilish smile. I will post a pic when I get off of bedrest.

I'm hoping to start an etsy or cafe press store featuring him and his sweet freinds in mischief. I want to make fashionable, affordable and adorable childrens and teen clothing. To make this dream a reality I am working to get sponsers, saving money and getting inspired by my sweet baby boy Kai.

So please be patient and look forward to Evil Cupcakes debut, comin soon folks!

The tattooed Mommy

So I found myself in the chair once again. Wincing as Cheyenne inked a beautiful but dead geisha girl into my upper left arm.

He stopped, "You alright?"

Me (No!) "Oh sure, I'm fine. Keep it up!"

I love my tattoos. I love how they cover my arms with beautiful art. And yet I somehow forget that they're extremely painful until I get comfy in the chair and hear that wasp like buzz. Hell, I've had a kid and I still find tattoos more painful. But oh so worth it.

My artist is a local legend, Cheyenne Sawyer. A forward to the point of being blunt, no B.S. old school artist who knows he's skilled. The kind of artist you want, especially if you're looking for a custom piece. He hails from Oddball studios in Portland. Every artist at Oddball is a master of the machine. The studio is immaculate and the staff is friendly. Cheyenne books out months ahead of time but if you show him the respect he deserves he will quickly become your ally in ink. Is he expensive? Yep but if you want a good tattoo to show off for the rest of your life its worth every damn penny.

My name is Belovedlilith. I'm a mother to a beautiful baby boy and a wife to my awesome husband. Yes we have tattoos, no we are not trash. The measure of someones worth is not inked on their skin folks, so don't judge.
