Shephard has always been drawn to art, adopting Salvador Dali? as her favorite artist when she was just eight. For her, tattoos seemed a natural fit. Curious to feel the sensation of the needle, she was first marked on her 18th birthday with a peace sign the size of a nickel. She’s been collecting ever since. Her work now includes a poker flush for her heartthrob, “Cool Hand Luke” Paul Newman; a Buddha represent- ing her philosophical solace; and a Quintus Ennius quote, “They hate whom they fear,” in response to 9/11. Although her taste in art has developed over the years, her feelings for her tattoos remain the same. “I love them,” she says. “They’re mine.”
