I’ve been in game since 2006 and hanging around the old blogging grounds since 2007. I am a fashion hound in real life as much as I am in Second Life. I enjoy mixing and matching pieces from different designers.
I blog things that I like. Sometimes it’s not items or looks that are necessarily new to the grid or certain maker. My style is contemporary sometimes rocker kind of feel to it. I also like eclectic looks.
If you’re a creator reading this, you can send me items to feature; however, I totally reserve the right to not blog it if it’s not my style. I’m also not accepting new creators. The creators I have now deserve the attention and love I give them and have been with me for a long time. If I take any more on, the quality of photos and styling suffers and no one wins. This much I’ve learned over the years.
I’m also sick to death of creators with demanding blog requirements because of a few bad apples. I do this as a hobby and it should be an enjoyment. If I like something, I’ll blog it and typically buy most of my items.
In addition to blogging, I create tattoos and sell them in my store, TENJIN in the Hollow Shades. Lots of offbeat ink and most always with upbeat messages. I’m a sucker for old-school tattoo design.
What I strive for with my designs is ink that you can mix and match, just like in RL. A little bit here and a little bit there. I also try to highlight the human body and have the art fit the curve. Not an easy task in Second Life design, as you can imagine.
I appreciate every time someone purchases a design from me. My loyal customers (and I know who you are!) bring a huge smile to my face and a warm spot in my heart. I can’t thank you enough. I am humbled each time a blogger highlights my designs in his or her blog as well. I want to hug each and every one of you.
