If you’re into eating healthy but are on a budget, check out Stacie Michelle.
I’m combining my two loves and my two blogs into one. From now on, all tattoo and body modification blogs will be posted over at Stacie Michelle.
In the coming months I’m looking to expand my blog from recipes and tattoo-related posts, to more product reviews, travel, my journey of moving to the UK and sharing with you more of my life.
I’ve already starting posting tattoo-related pieces, such as the inspiration behind my tattoos and the recent Australian Tattoo News Round-Up.
Come and join the fun!

Kat’s third book is set for release Tuesday April 16.
This time around it features large scale pieces, tattoos requiring several sessions to complete.
It wouldn’t be a Kat Von D book without appearances from celebrities like Linda Perry, The Game and Bobcat Goldthwait.
Say what you will about Kat Von D. You either love her or you hate her.
You can pre order this book from Book Depository and receive free shipping.
Myths, Gods and Legends
If books from ‘celebrity’ tattoo artists aren’t your thing, how about this book of by Adam Kitamoto from Ten-Ten Tattoo in Camberwell, Victoria?
After three years of work, even an earthquake couldn’t stop the release of this book.
With 160 pages of original artwork by Adam, this book is packed full of stunning Japanese imagery.
Gomineko Books is offering a sweet deal if you pre order the book before the end of April.

Modern Medusa is still dead and buried (for the time being, at least) but I thought it would be cruel of me not to share this will you all.
To celebrate closing in on 100,000 fans on Facebook, Inked Australia/NZ are running their biggest competition to date.
From Inked Australia/NZ’s Facebook page:
Want $1000 towards your next tattoo?
To celebrate Inked Aus/NZ Facebook page about to reach 100,000 likes we’re giving away 100,000 cents (AUD$1000) towards one person’s next tattoo.
To win all you need to do is post a drawing/picture of the tattoo you want and tell us why you want it to our Facebook page before March 1st 2013.
The Inked Team will then choose their winner of the grand prize!
T&Cs: This is not a game of chance. You must live in Australia or New Zealand. Cash is not redeemable for the prize. The money (AUD$1000) will be paid directly to a registered tattooist (*NSW) in Australia or New Zealand at time of winner being tattooed. Contest runs from 12 February 13 till midnight 28 February 2013. This prize cannot be shared, but can be used over various sittings. Winner announced 4 March 2013. Winner chosen by Inked Australia/NZ team, not by most Facebook likes.
Put on your thinking cap, put pen to paper, create a collage of ideas and get writing. Inked Australia/NZ wants to know what you want for your next tattoo and why you want to win.
This money could mean finally being able to afford a tattoo from your favourite tattoo artist. Maybe you have no tattoos and want to get your first. Or perhaps you have a bad tattoo just begging to be covered up.
So far there are under 200 entries. It’s free to enter, so what have you got to lose? You have better chances of winning this than the lottery!
$1000 towards your next tattoo is huge. Show your appreciation by liking Inked Australia/NZ on Facebook, following them on Twitter @Inked_Australia and spreading the word!
Picking up copies of Inked Australia/NZ magazine, Inked Girls and Inked Artists wouldn’t hurt either :)
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 12,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 20 years to get that many views.
After almost 18 months of working on this blog, as of today it is no longer.
Modern Medusa is dead.
It is closing in on a year since I last got tattooed. I’m out of the loop. I can’t remember what it feels like when that needle hits the skin. Due to my current situation I won’t be getting any new ink in the foreseeable future. To write about something that I love SO much which isn’t really a part of my life any more is difficult.
Will I be back? Maybe.
What happens in 2013 will pave the way. I can only hope that, one day, the path will lead me back to here.
If you want to keep up to date with Australian and New Zealand tattoo news, expos and all things tattoo art and culture, I suggest you pick up copies of Tattoos Down Under magazine or Inked Australia/NZ magazine, Inked Girls or Inked Artists.
