What was your first tattoo?

My first tattoo were 2 sparrows on the side of my breasts at 14 years old. My friends secretly purchased a tattoo machine & tattooed me discreetly in his house. I forgot to delete the picture off my Mother’s lap top who was furious. I couldn’t stop ever sense.

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

I can vouch for them being addictive but not everyone can endure the pain. We all have our own ways to alternate our looks. Some go for plastic surgery, I personally prefer tattoos. It’s the beauty of embracing the experience or journey of the tattoo. Whether it’s sentimental, memorial or the story of the pain you are trying to share, tattoos are one of the most beautiful ways of self expressions. It’s your temple & why not decorate it?

If you were voted Inked Magazine's cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?

If I was to win the cover of Inked, the first thing I would do is cry. It’s been my dream to make the cover of Inked magazine. Next, I would probably move out of Miami, to start a new life and invest in my own business. I’m not going to lie, I will definitely get more tattoos.
