Ahh, you've read the crazy rantings of Tatted Mom and now want to know a little more about her, eh? May the gods have mercy on your soul...
My name is Morgan, I'm 33... ugh, don't remind me... I have been married to Hubby for 15 years now (holy crap, has it been that long, and we haven't killed one another??). I have 2 kids, a daughter, 12 (The Girl), and a son, 9 (The Ginger), 3 cats: Bones, Skelly and Kitteh (Hubby named the last one), 1 puppy: Ariya, and 1 hamster: Gizmo. I'm a tattoo artist turned stay-at-home mom by day (with a crafty/witchy/tree hugging Etsy store called Inked Goddess Creations to keep me even busier) and ninja assassin at night, and yes, I have a potty mouth.
Did I mention I'm the author of "Tatted Mom's Guide to NOT Screwing Up Your Kids: Colorful Parenting Tips from a Colorful Mother"?? No? Damn, my bad. Well, you can go check that out on Amazon (and Kindle and Nook, too)!
Back in the day (it was a Tuesday, no wait, maybe a Wednesday) I was the do-it-all-mom. My family ate organic, there were no chemicals in my house at all, I cleaned with natural items, made my kids' baby wipes, made all natural lotions, soaps, etc, baked, did yoga, meditated, wore hippy skirts and wrote poetry. Man, that seems like a lifetime ago. I opened my own new age store, which successfully ran in the Bible Belt for 2 years- year #3 wasn't so amazing, and the store closed. I then ventured into the world of tattooing, which actually destroyed my life for a while.

I've taken with me the life lessons learned over the last few years of trying to do it all myself. I am constantly learning how to bridge the gap between the hippy mom of yesteryear (I still wear my skirts) and the independent artsy business woman (now covered in tattoos), all while having to relearn my children and myself, and keeping the spark going with Hubby and I.
Son of a bitch, I'm busy.
Here's to getting things right, this time...
