Inked Girls: Amanda Shanahan
Myself in a sentence: I am someone who loves everything and everyone for their individuality and believe that my tattoos are a beautiful way to show and express that. I am spontaneous, caring, goofy, nerdy, social, family oriented and love staying at home and cuddling up with a good book. I am a huge sports fan GO BRONCOS, DODGERS AND LAKERS ;) That is why most of my Sundays are spent at home lounging around and watching sports or getting tattoos :)
Occupation: office manager
Hometown: Canoga Park, CA
The design and themes of my tattoos: My theme was basically beauty and humbleness... I want people to look at my tattoos and smile. I get that a lot so .. I am pretty happy with them.
More specifics about my tattoo: All of my tattoos were done by Mitzy she is the most amazing tattoo artist with such a gentle hand. She works out of needle pushers tattoo shop in Van Nuys. I go over everything with her first before we do anything. She has really been helpful in what we put on myself.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is my peppermint patty tattoo on my left arm. Instead of the York inside I put POPS. When I was a little girl my dad worked til late and woke up early. Most days I would never see him but so I knew he had came home he would pick up a peppermint patty (my fave) and put one under my pillow. I loved waking up and seeing that :) so i put it on me as a constant beautiful memory of just plain ol' love <3
My next tattoo: My next tattoo will be after I have a kid and a family. I need to leave some room on me to express the remaining meaningful years of my life :)
