Valentine Roundup

Posted in anatomy, food, installations, valentine's day with tags , , , on February 14, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I suppose I’ve made more of a fuss over Valentine’s Day on this blog in previous years. Not sure why it kind of escaped me this time around, but since I didn’t do a countdown or themed posts, here are a few links to “Valentine” goodies (I use the holiday label loosely).

Bafefit is located in Rome Italy. The works are reminiscent of traditional tattoo art in some ways. The images below speak to me for Valentine’s Day, with the twin images I view as shared souls.

Perhaps a bit late to post these for gift ideas, but your Valentine deserves to be shown your heart all the time, not just on February 14th.
