My Cat Sugar Skull Tattoo

My reason for getting a cat sugar skull tattoo is pretty simple: I’ve had a lot of kitties die on me this year. Our Girlie and Kulasa cats both had a litter each— a total of nine kitties plus the occasional strays that find their way to our home. Save for two who mysteriously disappeared (I hope someone found them irresistibly adorable and adopted them), only one survived. I miss each one of them every day.

Sugar skulls are used to decorate the ofrendas (offerings) on Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, the Mexican holiday to celebrate and enjoy the memories of the deceased. Trendy as they are, I find sugar skulls to be extremely pretty. When I came across this cat sugar skull cross stitch pattern on Etsy a few months ago, I was smitten by the idea and knew that I would eventually get one tattooed on me.

WARNING: Contains a pic of a weeping wound/blood/blood plasma.

I live for breakfast food. And I don’t mean any of that cereal and fruit nonsense. I’m Filipino and I like my weekend breakfasts big and hearty with copious amounts of sinangag. While most local joints offer all-day breakfast meals on their menu, I’ve always wanted a place dedicated solely to breakfast (that costs less and is nearer to me than IHOP or Heaven and Eggs).
