Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday CherrieDragon!!!!!!!
One year old is a big step.
This is the time when babies are starting to walk point and have thoughts of their own. The same can be said for this lovely little website.
It’s now starting to gain a following and has over 5,000 visitors a day, not bad for a years time!
We stumbled when we first started, trying to find our place in the world, but then we got bigger. Finally learned to pee in the big potty and now people know our name!
For this blog I sat down with the founder of CherrieDragon and my fabulous Aunt Kim!
She had a lot to say about our birthday and her love for all things tattoo. So kick back and enjoy while thinking about what to get us for a bday gift!
As Kim and I sat down to do this interview I viewed her not as my father’s sister (which she is). Or the person I sometimes get drunk and sing off-key karaoke with. Or even as a second mom (which she totally is), but as a writer, artist and blogger. It’s easy to see we are related. We look so much alike most people think she is my mom, but we are more a like because we share a love of writting, creating and of course tattoos. We both have a few. Some of hers dating back 20 years, mine only 4 years. While there may be a difference in age and tattoo styles we both share a common love of good tattoos and beautiful artistry. Tattoos run in our family, when you turn 18 someone’s getting you a tattoo. My Aunt, my Mom and my Dad all had their first tattoos at my grandparent’s kitchen table, thanks to their Dad, and my Dad took me to get my mine the day I turned 18. The love is deep in our veins! You’ll hear more about my Aunt’s first tattoo a little later.
Kim shines with the glow of someone who loves what they do. Her words are heartfelt and honest….
*Me: Why did you start Cherriedragon.com?
Kim: To share my love of “GOOD” tattoos with everybody. There is nothing worse than a scratched tattoo.
*Me: What do you love about tattoos?
Kim: I was having this conversation with a friend the other day and he said “Tattoos are like a time line of your life” I really liked that. Even if the tattoo doesn’t have a deep meaning to the person they can still look at it and remember a specific time in their life.
*Me: What do tattoos represent for you?
Kim: A way of expressing myself, to make what God gave me a little more beautiful.
*Me: What’s next for CherrieDragon?
Kim: I would like to see CherrieDragon Tattoos go in the direction of a more interactive page. A place where people can find quality artist in their area and then proudly display the work they get done for the world to admire.
*Me: What other blogs do you do?
Me: What your favorite tattoo on yourself?
Kim: The first tattoo I got is my favorite. I got it when I was 17 almost 18 as a Birthday present from my Dad. It’s a crystal ball with a rose inside; it was drawn by my older brother and tattooed by a friend of the family. She was a tattoo professional but she came to our house and did it at my kitchen table. I have since added to it but the original tattoo is still there and always will be.
Me: When did you start loving and wanting tattoos?
Kim: I can’t think of time when I didn’t love tattoos.
Did you think about what to get us for our birthday?
