What is the website to see the paintings done by Chris Garver from Miami Ink?

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

I saw a recent episode of Miami Ink where a teenage guy comes in wanting a tattoo of a tiger. The guy says he is getting it because it is his mom’s chinese zodiak and he’s going to college. Chris Garver recognizes the picture as one of his own painting and he mentions that the kid got it from his website. What is the website??

You Can Enhance your Love Life with Romantic Date Night Ideas

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Spend one night out each week doing something fun and different. If you’re looking for a few good ideas to start a weekly tradition with your loved one, read on!

Play a Fun Board Game

There are a bunch of really romantic and sensual board games for couples that you will find in most games shops. You could also go with traditional games and add a romantic twist to them. For Scrabble, say, adapt it by creating the rule that all words spelled must be on the topic of love and romance.

Cook a Weekly Dish Together

You can alternate weeks. Try the Internet to find great recipes that can be printed out. Try the recipe together.

Movie Night in and out

This is the main stay of any romantic couple, so be sure to not neglect this one. So long as you are watching a good variety of interesting flicks, and cuddling up and smooching as you watch the movie together, you are doing just fine! Plan for some yummy snacks!

Check out to see if there is a drive-in movie theater within driving distance and if there is, go out often!

Spend a Romantic Evening in

Order in something delectable like Mexican, pamper yourselves in a steamy bath together complete with bubbles and candles, take turns massaging each other with scented body oils and of course, make delirious love. If you are not doing this on a regular basis—why not?

Go House Browsing

The women especially will love this! Take a casual drive, or walk in a neighborhood you consider ideal and dream a little. Together, pick out your favorite dream house. On the weekends you might take this one step further and visit open houses. Just be sure to set the ground rules first, (i.e. this would be my fondest dream with you….)

Go Extravagant with a Night out On the Town

Every good love life needs a little of this.Catch an independent film or attend a street fair, kick up your heals at a square dance, or sit in on a new book reading.

Gaze on a Star and Name it

Go out for a country ride and lay down a warm blanket. Gaze up into the sky and search for a star! Go on-line and register your name for your star and dedicate it to your relationship!

Learn Something Fascinating Together

Take a new class together, such as: Cajun cooking, Chinese brush painting or Early American Folk pottery.

Enjoy a Visit to a Museum

Museums are not all stuffy. Look for new experiences such as a wax museum, cultural digs museum, ancient artifacts museum, war memorabilia museum or any other type that might interest you both.

Enjoy More Fun Together

Go fishing, play snooker, try a new sport like volleyball.

Visit New Sights within your City

Contact your visitor’s bureau and look through pamphlets for new ideas on different aspects of your city that you can visit together. Make a list of “must-see’s” and then tick them off one by one. Keep a scrapbook of your many adventures.
