Run Run Runway!

Boy was yesterday a tiring day! I worked two events and ended Father's Day at a restaurant near my place with Ann and Drayden. The first event I worked was the National Runway Cycling & Skating 2009 at Paya Lebar Airbase. The airbase is open to the public once every year and it's truly a sight to see so many Singaporeans on bicyles!! The media says 7000 people turned up for the event but it sure looked more than that!

I got to Paya Lebar at 7 in the morning to set up my airbrush tattoo booth. Started airbrushing at 9am and ended at noon. My good old buddy Syed worked with me for the first time yesterday. He plans to drop by my place this weekend to practise airbrushing. It should be fun and I really do need an extra hand! Anyhow, it was good to see Nash at the event too. It sure looks like the airforce is treating him well. Heh!

I had the most rewarding experience yesterday. As an airbrush tattoo artist, I get to meet a lot of people. I reckon I airbrushed at least 150 people at the runway yesterday. Here's what made me a happy man...I airbrushed some folks from MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore) that were at the event. Each tattoo I did was met with a smile. Words can't say much so you had to be there to know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I spoke to a representative from MINDS and I want to airbrush at their place. I'll probably do it every two or three months.

I will need volunteers to help me out though. As I'm not charging them, I need people that are willing to do it for FREE. Volunteers will need to help guests choose designs, sort out stencils and most importantly, show some love! If you are interested, send me an email at ink@noelboyd.com.

That's about it for this post. Till next time folks...
