What is your favorite tattoo and why?

My favorite part of my body suit is my back piece which depicts a Kitsune in human form holding a traditional fox mask. It’s my favorite because it depicts a myth about the value of character over physical appearance which honors my experience as an illustrated woman.

What is one thing that you would like everyone to know about you?

Tattooing is not just my passion and my profession as a Tattooer/studio owner, but also my lifestyle. I wanted a Japanese bodysuit since I saw the movie Tattoo in 1981 when I was 11 years old and I’m proud to have achieved that goal. Through perseverance and dedication I have become a masterpiece of living art as well as an ambassador who gladly bridges the gap between the tattoo-curious and the serious tattoo collector while upholding the tradition of irezumi tattoo.

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

If I win the honor of Inked Magazine’s cover girl, I would support my family with the prize money by putting the prize money towards a down payment on a home but I am most excited to work with Ryan Ashley to complete my body by tattooing my head!!!
