What was your first tattoo?

I was 16 years old when I got my first tattoo at the very same shop I work out now, Electric Soul Tattoo! I told my mom I was getting a quarter size flower on my hip. It ended up being 3x that size because bigger is always better, right?

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

Yes, they are! I think when you first start getting them, you put so much thought into design, meaning, etc. For me personally, the more years that passed the less I thought about that stuff, and so I started getting random ones just living in the moment. I don't regret a single one- the memories are what count for me.

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

I honestly signed up on a whim after seeing the ad. I said, "Why not? With the winnings I could start over." I'm a full time mom, I tattoo when I can, I create wholesome skincare products for those w specific needs, I'm getting certified to become a doula and I'm also moving to WA state this year for a new beginning. My son is my world so the winnings would help tremendously in our journey. I'm on the path to happiness this year and nothing is going to get in my way. "Rock on with yo bad self!"
