Getting new tattoo look how stoked I am lol
Well considering I thought I was going to end up in touristy Esperance but instead ended up off the beaten path in tiny little Hopetoun I was already stoked before I arrived. But once I got there and saw the place I was even more happy, I love local little towns and villages much more than big city’s and tourist spots.
Well the first night was just your usual Thursday night here in small little Hopetoun we ended up at the pub of course. Where everyone welcomed me with friendly smiles and open arms. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of this night. But i did get one of the pub.
Wave Crest Pub
Here I met what is to become a very good friend DJ Dusk2Dawn (Jayde) and the most beautiful set of eyes I’ve ever seen belonging to an amazing young lady Hannah.
This was a great night at a really kool local little pub called Wave Crest where most of the locals place a few small bets at the TAB and every drink you buy you get a couple tickets to go into the draw for a game they call chase the ace. At 8pm I think it was they drew a number out of a hat from all the tickets sold that night and the winner picks a face down card off a board and has to try guess what the card is. If you guess right you with the cash prize which on the night was $4200, however it wasn’t won. So back to drinking lol.
The pubs here close at midnight which to me coming from Queenstown is stupid early but that’s ok it just means there’s a lot of house party’s here. Some big but most just small with a few mates going to someone’s house for a few more beers before going home. Tonight it was Dave’s and the only one to come back with us was Jayde. Dave and Triin went to bed reasonably early but me and Jayde stayed up drinking and chatting till the sun came up.
The following night the party was at the only other local pub in town called the Port situated right by the beach.
On the way to the pub while me and Jayde were walking past the police station we witnessed the police tasering someone right outside the police station which I couldn’t get my head around. You already got him to the station then you taser him and not once but twice. Trigger happy cops I suppose. Oh well carry on to the pub i guess.

Party is probably the wrong word as there was only maybe a dozen people there. But that’s where I met a random tattooist Cam who I organised to get a tattoo two days hence but because I said I usually don’t plan that far ahead for anything which is true as I’m so spontaneous and quite often run on impulse he offered to do it tonight. Of course I jumped at the chance and when the pub closed Jayde who also decided to get a spontaneous tattoo tonight, Cam the tattooist, the ever beautiful Hannah with the most amazing eyes I’ve ever seen and I got some takeaway drinks and headed to Cams studio for some tattoos.
The finished product. Super stoked looks awesome
I know a lot of people are going to be thinking what the fuck are you getting a tattoo drunk for. Not even knowing what you’re going to get, but I love tattoos and me being me: loud, arrogant, spontaneous, according to most people I meet a little crazy and just plan full of life. I believe we only live once, we get one chance at this thing we call life and I try to live it with no regrets. I try to live by some words a friend gave me once which helped me at a very bad time in my life:
Get in trouble
Give em hell
And always have fun
This leads me to do some stuff that people sometimes frown upon but that’s another quality I have where it doesn’t bother me what other people think of me, only what I think of myself and those qualities and those words, ever since I started living by them I’ve enjoyed life.
Anyway enough about me and back to it.
So I have quite a few tattoos and they hurt not to much but enough to make them uncomfortable so the best way to avoid the pain is to distract yourself. Which was pretty easy with Hannah there, those amazing eyes of hers could distract the devil himself. She made the whole process so much easier and more comfortable I barely felt any pain at all especially when I was staring at those eyes.
Me and Hannah after tattoo. Sadly this photo doesn’t do her justice so you’ll just have to trust me those eyes are mesmerizing and unforgettable
Anyway we kept drinking throughout the night and after my tattoo sadly the beautiful Hannah left but excitingly it was Jayde’s turn.

This was another daylight drinking session but by the end of it we had some great times and great tattoos.
