Rockin’ the Rose Tattoo

I actually don’t have a rose tattoo. It was never an image I wanted, but yes, I do have tattoos and I want more. Isn’t that always the way of things? There’s something almost hypnotic about being under the needle. Yeah, I’m aware that to non-tattooed people it sounds weird, but there it is.

Even better, tattoos are monuments set into skin, art that tells the story of a person’s life. It could be something as simple as a silly Disney character you had done when you were drunk to a well-thought out tattoo in memory of a lost one. They tell stories, they show who you are and what you’ve done. I have three and I remember each one. They aren’t memorial tattoos, but abstracts but I remember the person I was when I got each one.

The first was my big dare in college. The second was after college when I also got my tongue pierced. It’s actually my favorite tattoo of all. The third was done about 7 years ago. I got it with a friend who was getting her first. I have more planned and as soon as I can find the money, I’ll get them done.

And Dropkick Murphys wrote a song about tattoos, what they mean to the person who has them. Yes, I know there are people out there who regret their ink, but for the most part I think most people look back at them to remember that brief freeze frame in time. At least I do. I think back to the kid I was, the person I was growing into and I think of them fondly.

So here’s “Rose Tattoo” by Dropkick Murphys. It’s a great song and one I have to sing along with everytime.

Weekend Ready

This week seemed to drag, didn’t it? I mean, even the physical therapist said something about everyone he’d seen that day was dragging their feet. But it’s Friday. And not just any Friday, but Friday the 13th! Yay. In my hometown, tattoo artists are going to be offering $13 tattoos. I think they have to fit with the theme of Friday the 13th though. You can’t just go get a huge back piece for 13 bucks.

I have a lot planned this weekend. Mostly writing. I have a project I need to put another 30k words into before I can call it done. I think. Every time I say that thought, the characters decide they’re not finished being emotional and need another 20k. Just one more 20k and they’ll be finished. *snort* Whatever. So yeah, working on the story and getting ready for the release of Playing Doctor on Monday. If I can keep more characters from that world from interrupting my paranormal, I’ll be good. But they’re bossy. Sheesh!

Anyway, because it’s Friday and because we’re all ready for the weekend, I’m playing some songs for us to get “freaky” to. Now y’all know I don’t listen to Top 40 lists or anything that might be remotely considered “popular music”, but even I’ve heard of this song. But when I heard it, for a very short moment, I thought it was a remake of a Marvin Gaye song. Apparently I’m not the only one either. While looking for the Marvin Gaye song posted below, I came across some people arguing about it.

I’m not going to argue about it. To me they sound similar. But they also sound like good party songs, so kick it into gear and put yourself in a mindset to enjoy your weekend people!

First up is Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”:

And now for Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up”. I love this song. I bought his greatest hits just so I could have a copy of it, back when people still bought CDs. But uh, yeah, it’s fun so enjoy!

Interview With Dominic Dasinger

Hola my friends!

I seem to be stretching these interviews out to every other week, but it isn’t as easy to find sexy men as you’d think. I know, I know y’all think they just fall in my lap. I wish. If only it were that easy! Le sigh. However, when I do come across a properly studly man who is happy to answer my naughty questions I have to share him with y’all.

Today I’m introducing Dominic Dansinger, a smexy, muscular tattooed hottie. I hope y’all enjoy!


Danica: How did you become a model?
Dominic: I was working as a Bartender and a guy named Randy a photographer came in for a drink.  He asked me if I wud be interested in doing a photoshoot for him, that he needed a new male model.  I figured Id give it a try.  Before I knew it I was meeting Mike Lyons of Silver Model Management out of New York.  Everything has taken off from there. Who knew slinging some drinks with no shirt on and dancing on the bar would lead to all this 🙂

Danica: What’s the one place in the world you’d love to visit and why?
Dominic: I would love to visit Spain.  I have always wanted to run with the bulls, see the beaches, and dance all night long!IMG_20130213_154245

Danica: How many hours do you spend in the gym?
Dominic:  I spend bout 2 hours in the gym a day, six days a week.  But I do a lot of exercises that most do not.  I try to work every muscle in my body once a week.  I even get on the abductor machine otherwise known as the leg squeezy machine and push myself to the point of groaning and crying out.  I’m pretty sure everyone in the gym laughs at me.
Danica: I seriously doubt that, LOL

Danica: What do you think is your best feature?
Dominic: I think my eyes are my best feature, sometimes blue other times like ice.  “The eyes are windows to the soul” so probably why I usually keep them hidden under a low pulled hat 🙂 95facebook9564662695795

Danica: What’s your favorite kink? (sexual)
Dominic: Oh wow I have to choose one.  Maybe a little out there but I love to find a spot where a vein is kind of out like on the neck, arm, inside of leg and suck and bite on it.  Huge turn on and even better when done to me.  (Maybe I’m a vampire at heart lol)
Danica: You know that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I’m sure somewhere, someone has evidence that this only a natural response to pheromones or something…and it worked for Bella and Edward.

Danica: Are you a breast or a butt man?
Dominic: I love all features but I’m a sucker for cleavage gets me every time.  582544_400344813381441_1838723420_n

Danica:What’s your favorite position?
Dominic: I guess considered old school, but missionary position.  Being on top, looking into eyes, maybe even pinning the arms down….My fav position. Well that or either picking her up and holding against the wall.  Def a close second 🙂
Danica: Somehow I doubt Dominic has a sex app on his phone he uses for reference.

Danica: What’s your favorite color?
Dominic: Black

Danica: Favorite food?
Dominic: Froot Loops


Danica: Do you prefer winter or summer?
Dominic: Summer

Danica: What’s one movie you can watch over and over?
Dominic: Sin City

Danica: Do you prefer mountains or beaches?
Dominic: Beaches


Danica: Pets? What kind?
Dominic: My two chocolate labs..love em!
Danica: Darn dogs always capture the heart, don’t they?

Danica: Is there anything about yourself you feel enough people don’t know?
Dominic: I did Undercover work buying guns and drugs for three years and was a S.W.A.T. Officer for some years after that performing hostage rescue operations to executing drug search  warrants.
Danica: And suddenly everyone is imagining Dominic in BDUs. If they aren’t, something’s wrong with them because there is nothing sexier than a man in BDUs…unless he’s getting out of them. Just sayin’.


So my friends? What do you think of today’s muscled hunk? He’s got some killer tattoos, huh? Oh, you didn’t notice that? Go back and look again. Take your time  to scroolll through the pictures nice and slow. Wipe the fog away from the screen and move back a little so it doesn’t happen again.

Dominic will be stopping by periodically to chat with y’all, so be…well, I was going to say ladylike but I know y’all. So at least be gentle!

The Tattoo Debate

I don’t know how we got on the subject on Easter Sunday, but at some point during the day, we had a tattoo debate. My sister, sister-in-law, nephew’s girlfriend, mother, my brother’s mother-in-law, and I got into a heated discussion about tattoos and unfortunately for the older ladies, they were severely outnumbered.

The debate raged for at least half an hour with everyone offering up their opinions on what they’d like to get done while the mothers shook their heads and looked disapproving. They don’t understand and I can see where they’re coming from. It’s a generation gap. People who had tattoos in their time were considered outsiders, freaks, criminals even. These days, tattoos are more accepted, though there are still those who consider them disgusting and morally wrong, or inappropriate. I’m not one of those people. Obviously.

I’ve always had a fascination with tattoos which is why I got three. It has nothing to do with rebelling against society. I do that on a daily basis by not conforming to what’s popular and mainstream. It has nothing to do with rebelling against my parents. They know I’m “not normal” as they like to call it.

Tattoos are a personal choice, a permanent personal choice yes, a way to show who you are, or as a tribute to someone you love. I don’t always agree with the latter since some bonds don’t always last, but again it comes down to personal choice. That’s what makes tattoos the most personal thing a person can do to themselves. It’s a way of identifying who you are that has nothing to do with a criminal record or how bad ass you are.

The debate ended with my sister saying she wants one and she blames me for it. Yes, you heard me. She says I’m a bad influence on her because she’s colored her hair differently (y’all know about my 3-toned hair colors), has started reading sexy books (she started with mine), and now she wants a tattoo. And she blames me.

What are your thoughts on tattoos?
