Im Lexi I’m a Tattoo Artist and enthusiast. 24 years young, from Atlantic City, NJ.
What was your first tattoo?
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I was going to be covered in tattoos. I was 16 when I got my first 7 hour rib piece tattooed in memory of my dad. I had plenty of opportunity to get one much younger. But I promised my sister, who was like a mother to me, that I would wait until I was 16 to get it and I was 14 at the time asking if she would sign for me. She said if I still wanted the same exact thing, she would take me when I tuned 16. And true to her word, she did.
Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?
Absolutely. If you think dying your hair is fun, or playing with makeup, or anything to do with altering your appearance... your in for it once you start haha! At this point I don’t get tattoos much anymore that HAVE to mean something. I now COLLECT some beautiful pieces of art that I just simply got because I wanted it. No significant meaning other then it was DOPE. I think what’s truly addictive is the experience you get from the entire process.
If you were voted Inked Magazine's cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?
Well I myself am a tattoo artist, and I would most definitely open up a Private- appointment only custom tattoo shop for myself.
