Inked Girls: Emily “M” Elegado
Myself in a sentence: i am a twenty-something year old tattoo artist currently working at blu gorilla tattoo in charleston sc.
Occupation: Tattoo Artist
Hometown: Madison Wi
The design and themes of my tattoos: mythical,animals,pin-ups,memorial,japanese
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: hard to choose, but i really love the portrait of dorothy from the wizard of oz on my left shin. when i was a kid my father sang "somewhere over the rainbow" to me every night before i went to bed. years later i got to dance with my daddy to the same song at my first wedding. that movie has been woven into my life, and as i kid i always looked up to dorothy as a strong female role model. it only seemed right that she be on my body. the tattoo was done by mike bullock, a phenomenal portrait artist.
My next tattoo: sky's the limit :] although i do keep going back and forth on the idea of tattooing my own left palm... wish me luck! haha
