Tatted up with MetaInk

As the summer is starting to wind down, I’m starting to think about all the awesome things that have happened in the last couple months. It’s kind of crazy to look back at the last 8 weeks and all the amazing things that Seattle summers bring. For me, these months mean being outside and hanging out with friends more often because we’re not all being poured on by the rain like the other ~9 months of the year. This summer was especially exciting for me because I met a lot of new friends through volunteer programs and friends of friends who are just all-around awesome as is (Hi Kimmmy!).

One really fun thing this summer was meeting the beauty and brains behind Meta Ink and working with Kim to style and shoot a summer look book for them. Aside from this blog, it’s been a loooong time since I’ve purposefully gotten to take styled photos – especially with other people – and had SO MUCH FUN.


Can we seriously talk about how gorgeous these ladies are? It really wasn’t hard to get a couple of us together with the promise of getting to play with metallic temporary tattoos, getting all prettied up to shoot during golden hour in the forests just outside of the city. This is quite possibly the best way to spend a Monday night after work, don’t you think?


If you haven’t already, I would highly recommend checking out Meta Ink. They make temporary tattoos that bring me back to all my childhood memories of walking around my parents’ house with sleeves of skulls and roses, but more mature and age-appropriate ;)

This photo didn’t make the cut for their look book, but it’s one of my favs from the set. Why? Well, the banter that you can’t hear through the photo is the fact that Kim was telling me to take the bra off – because the back was too high- so that we could shoot the back of the dress (which I borrowed from her closet) and I was laughing because I was all shy and like, “Nooo, all the forest animals are going to see this?!?!” Yeah, we’re ridiculous. (& for the record… the bra stayed on)

  • Took me a while to figure out what you meant by metallic tattoos- the others look like they are wearing jewelry almost! Yours is so subtle, I like it. What a neat thing.
