Some big news on the tattoo front in a sec (of which I am clearly an expert, judging by my many [zero] tattoos), but since this is a food blog, first let’s talk breakfast!
If there is one food I will never get sick of, it is peanut butter (cheese is a close second). And one combo I will definitely never get sick of is peanut butter and banana. I could eat this day in and day out (I pretty much do) and be a happy gal.
This morning I topped a toasted whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and sliced banana and cinnamon and went to town!
If I have one complaint about this breakfast, it is that Weight Watchers English muffins can sometimes be quite small. This one was tiny. However, I was surprisingly full afterwards, and that’s all that matters.
Tattoos By Melon
Onto some exciting tattoo news!
My good friend Dawn’s younger sister Melon is quite the artiste and has opened her own tattoo parlour (they’re still called that, right? I’m not very tattoo savvy).
Dawn is next to me, and Melon is on the far right in that minxy purple dress.
The business is called Tattoos By Melon, and it’s in Port Perry (our hometown!) at 229 Water Street inside the Taylor’d To You Beauty Salon. She will do consultations and walk-ins. And she will design tattoos as well as do up any tattoos that you may have designed yourself. She’ll also do colour tattoos as well as black and white, and henna. Basically, she will do it all.
Her pricing is based on size and colour, but she’s pretty reasonable since she is new and trying to build a reputation.
And by new I mean new to the tattoo business. I don’t mean that if you decide you would like a tattoo by Melon it’s going to be the first one she’s ever done and you’re going to end up with this on your back…

She has been doing tattoos for a while (in back alleys and abandoned trailers…I’m kidding), and she is also a pretty accomplished artist. She majored art in college, has pictures in galleries, and she also sells paintings. Melon is kind of a big deal.
If I was going to trust anyone to ink up my bod, it would be her. She already has some sweet tats under her belt…
Those tattoos are by Melon. Pretty sexy, oui?
And Port Perry is only an hour and a half from Toronto! When you consider the fact that a tattoo is a life-long investment, it’s worth the drive.
I’m off to get a tattoo of a cookie on my face. So the next time you see me I may look like this.
Show a sister some love! Get a tattoo by Melon!
