What was your first tattoo?

My first tattoo was probably the most cliche tattoo ever. It was a butterfly with tribal on the sides on my lower back. In my defense, I was 14 years old when I got it and it had to be something my mom approved of in order for her to sign for me to get it lol. I thought I was so cool too when I got it, walking around school showing it off haha. I finally ended up getting it covered up about 6 years ago thankfully!

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

For me, Absolutely. Im the type already planning for my next one while I’m in the process of getting one. It’s very therapeutic for me and a nice little escape from the stresses life can throw at you. Everyone is different though, I know plenty of people who were one and done with tattoos. I enjoy being a colorful canvas and expressing myself through art. The way I look at it, I’m going to be old and wrinkly one day, so why not be old wrinkly and colorful!!

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

If I was voted inked magazines cover girl, first I would be unbelievably thankful and forever grateful for even having this honor. I’ll most likely cry cause I never win anything, besides poker, I’m a pretty good poker player lol. Anywho, after the shock wears off, I would immediately invest and put some of it away for my 3 amazing children and the rest of the money will go for a down payment on a new home for my family who deserves nothing but the best!
