New album progress report – January 17, 2016

Well, let’s see here… time to start work on a new maQLu album or EP, therefore time to start keeping track of progress on such. First of all, there were some loose ends to tidy up. First, skimming through the blog here it looks like I forgot to post a damn thing about me moving […]

Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Following up from the first tattoo cover-up session and the last one, yesterday we moved on to the left arm, where the cover-up tattoos shift from hibiscus to passionflowers.
