What was your first tattoo?

For my birthday nearly 2 decades ago,? my Mom (God rest her soul), took me to get an infamous "tramp stamp" lol, a petite pretty tribal looking thing..where it's like a hidden picture of my husband's nickname! Definitely NOT my fave, but got me hooked for sure. So glad to have this awesome memory of her now that she's no longer with us! I made sure to do the same thing with my eldest son for his 18th birthday some yrs back, as a tradition.

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

Omg YES it's true that they're addictive! I once went in for a "small" koi fish & it turned into a FULL SLEEVE & up onto my chest! So many tattoo ideas churning around yet so lil room to do so when ya think about it! I LOVE old school style. Be sure to find a true artist & build a relationship with them, my BEST tats are those where I told him to do what he does best & let him just run with an idea I'd given him..not some pic I'd brought in! & Remember Tattoos HURT! No pain no gain.

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

If I were to win I'd ? to take my boys on a trip of a lifetime! They're mostly grown now (ages 25, 22, 21 & 15) my 3 oldest are out of the house already. I'd love to be able to bring us all back together somewhere fun & reconnect as a family! Been ages since could do so. Hubby works so hard to provide for us, never taking much time off for himself..this would be such a nice treat! My family is my everything..my entire world! (& Getting a couple new tats of course wouldn't hurt either lol!?)
