Ahhhhh Japan, I was all up in you not even a few weeks ago and already, I miss you.
I’ll see you again in May, ok?! ^^
There is so much goodness and fun times to share from this last visit, but check out the preview to see what you’re in from #dctoJapan.
Of course I went to Japan for work (Design Festa& tattoos) but my stay was sandwiched with play.
I can’t work the same way I do in the States.
In the US, I can literally get off a flight, go straight to a tattoo shop and work the day away with no worries.
When I travel to Japan, I have to give myself time to rest and readjust, which honestly is an adjustment for me altogether, but aye! Yah gotta do what yah gotta do.
Fiddling on Instagram (I’m @ipukekawaii there if you ever want to follow my feed) I saw that my customer and homie, VaJohn was turning up in Tokyo.
WHHHAAAAA!!!!! Nucca! We can’t even cross paths in the same city but I messaged him to see what was up. And it was a wrap.
The party he was promoting was only to happen a few hours after I stepped off the plane.
We both said fuuuggggggg jet lag and leggo!
That was until I finally got to Shu-san’s house and was able to get comfortable … haha
I cancelled plans to party so fast and postponed seeing VJ until the next day.
Bruh! Even with sleep and a whole bunch of kawaii I look a hawt arse mess. >.<
Sleepy IKB (☝︎・☟ ) Not Sleepy IKB (big difference right?! 😹😹😹)
Anywhoo, I got my life together and hit the streets.
Not without my Dr. Pepper though.
I just never know what will trigger anxiety in Tokyo, especially being balls to the wall tired.
Hitting the streets with my comfort drink ^^ (ancient anxiety ninja move *kiyahhh*)
