“The pain you feel today will be your strength for tomorrow.” I got this tattooed on my thigh after overcoming a hard period in my life.

Placed 8th

in the Quarter-Finals

Thank you from all of us at Inked and the MusiCares Foundation for helping us provide health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in their time of need.

What was your first tattoo?

My first tattoo is a gecko on my toe, I got when I was sixteen right before I moved away to Calgary, Alberta. My Mom and sister both got the same one. From there on out I wasn’t stopping.

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

I fully believe once you get your first tattoo there’s almost no chance you won’t get another.. very soon after.

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

The first thing I’d do is take my two awesome boys to go watch a live Supercross. I would buy 2 goats and a pool for our farm. And then I would probably get another tattoo, or five more.
