Who's a girl got to talk to around here (Google) to get the down-low on Google rich snippets and recipes? I'm mystified why my marked-up posts don't get displayed as such in Google Search results.

I am beyond thrilled with Lauren's work on my latest tattoo, a compass with sloes berries. Beautiful design, perfectly executed and the colours are astounding. Going in I had a vision for what I wanted and Lauren took it above and beyond. The stage is set now! Hoping to return in 2016 for a ship on the same arm. Also, great service from the rest of the staff at No Regrets who do a brilliant cup of tea!
