Inked: You’ve explained that you have a “Good Esther” and a “Bad Esther” on your arm, do you use the latter to remind yourself not to turn back into her or is it a celebration of your inner-bad girl?

Do you have room for a sixth?
Yes, I plan on it! I definitely want one more child…
Who does your tattoos these days?
My latest piece was done by Freddy Negrete and it’s my favorite. My father means the world to me so Freddy tattooed my father’s portrait on my left arm. I’m extremely happy because Freddy captured my father’s exact face—I feel like I get to see him every day now.
