Myself, in a sentence
I am a free spirit that loves ladybugs, motorcycles, piercings, laughter, moonlight, garterbelts, horseback riding, dancing, mma, suicide girls, Marilyn Monroe, hazel eyes, playmates, swimming, daisies, and vintage cars.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
My favorite tat would have to be the one for my two children. My son's nickname is "BEAR" and my daughter has a terminally ill disease called epidermolysis bullosa, EB for short, and those affected with this rare condition are referred to as "butterfly children" because their skin is as fragile as a butterfly's wing. So this piece is of a blue bear, grateful dead inspired bear, and a pink butterfly. The blue bear is holding the pink butterfly and has my son's name on top and my daughter's on bottom. My kids mean the world to me and to be able to commemorate them like this permanently excites me!
My first tattoo and the story behind it
My first tattoo was done at a house party when I was around 15. Of course I was drunk and offered myself to my friend to practice on. So with a needle, thread, toothpaste, and pencil [shavings] we got started. I had him do the first thing I saw and that was a Boston redsox's "B" on a lighter [thank goodness I didn't see an ashtray first!]. It was close to an inch long and an inch wide on my right shoulder blade. I would love to say I learned from that mistake but that morning I woke up with three other home made tats!!
My next tattoo
My next tat is first and foremost, I'm finishing my left arm sleeve [colored in] and my "dying 'in transition'" cherry blossom tree. My tree is my biggest piece that starts right under my right breast, over my ribs, and about 4-5" down my right thigh. Aside from those two pieces I want to finish having my entire back covered and I'd love to start my right arm sleeve. I'm going to do a "day of the dead" theme that I've already started to piece together with my tat artist, Jamie Clinton. I'm going to stick with mainly black and gray with minimal traditionally color.
