Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Mary J. Blige...Oh My!

Lorraine Schwartz - world famous jewelry designer recently had in my opinion an astonishing release party for her new "2BHappy" jewelry collection. Lorraine asked me to collaborate with her using my body painting and crystal work with the fierce costume designs of the fabulous Miss Tina Knowles.

Featured here is our silver "2BHappy" goddess model shimmered on the red carpet with hostess Beyoncé and other sparkling stars such as Kim Kardashian, Mary J. Blige, Miss Tina Knowles, Blake Lively, Tyson Beckford, and Ashanti.

Canada, Eh!

It's been a fun filled year as the Temptu Sephora Living Museum events come to an end in Vancouver, BC.

I had the privilege of traveling with Temptu since our first premier at Fashion's Night Out in 2009. It has been a wonderful experience of airbrush makeup and temporary tattoos with many old and new friends made along the way.

To celebrate the occasion I decided to spend an adventurous day in the city of Vancouver trying new foods, shopping and site seeing. I wanted to commence the visit and love for Vancouver with a permanent souvenir of a true Canadian tattoo.

After doing some research and asking for the best tattoo shop in Vancouver, I found Sacred Heart Tattoo on Nelson Street. Nick Wasko graciously fit me into his schedule at the last minute and with the help of his co-worker Chris Hold , came up with the perfect Canadian tattoo!

I had a great time swapping stories with Nick and Chris and will get to see them again soon. Special thanks to Nick for making me an honorary Canadian with such a gorgeous tattoo! Can't wait to make an appointment with Chris next!! Check out these two awesome artists and visit them if you are ever in the Vancouver area!

Stay tuned for the 2011 tour of the Temptu Sephora Living Museum Events!

Body Art At The Victoria Secret Fashion Show

When I was younger, I remember watching the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. I was mesmerized by the look of the models and fashion hoping one day I would be able to experience it in person.

That day arrived when the skinprinter/makeup artist William Lemon II asked me to assist him with an amazing tribal body art show using TEMPTU's airbrush makeup. We worked on model Emanuela de Paulo and an entourage of male dancers during the 2010 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

This was an amazing show and I was able to live out one my dreams! Not only did I get to be a part of the show - I finally was able to see the show just a few rows away from the catwalk!

Watch the show on November 30th on CBS!!!

Bonded by Shoes

Late night? Nothing to do? Why not tattoo a good friend and have some great laughs!

My close friend and tattoo sister Casey Hahn hung out with me at the tattoo shop last night. After having a good meal she let me give her some new ink. Casey wanted a vintage image of something we are both very passionate about....Shoes! The tattoo is not done but it will be duplicated on me as well. Tattoo sisters bonded by the love of shoes!
