JJKel. I am a painter and tattoo artist. I’m extremely hard working & a powerful, free spirit. I am all about woman empowerment and art.
What was your first tattoo?
My first tattoo was a Mardi Gras mask, on my arm, that I got with my mom when I was 15. I will never forget. It’s one of my dearest memories.
Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?
I feel like it is addictive because they genuinely are stress relievers. Tattoos reduce cortisol levels in your body which decreases stress!
If you were voted Inked Magazine's cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?
I will open my first tattoo shop! It has been a lifelong dream of mine to own multiple tattoo shops and this will get me one step closer. I was raised on women empowerment so I will employ women tattoo artists. The shop will double as an event venue and be able to provide a space for local creatives to showcase and sell artwork and perform for their fans.
