Inked Girls: Jordan shotts
Myself in a sentence: Just a southern grown soul vibinn wherever life takes me. Ive lived all over and experienced many different cultures that has shaped me into the adrenaline hungry and tattoo obsessed gal I am today. I am 100 % Native American, and that's something i take much pride in (and will show in my inkwork). Along with being raised in a creole-cajun family household, I currently reside in the beautiful blue ridge mountains of Virginia, where I bartend in one of the most extensive craft beer selections around. (Also, my last name seems to be fitting in a bar.) Most of my tips goes towards my inkwork. I absolutely love loitering my entire body with art and will continue to add more to my collection. Besides my hunger for more ink, I've always aspired to be one of these stunning inked models, so that's what I'm choosing to strive for now. Wish me luck!

The design and themes of my tattoos: All of my tattoos are black and grey themed and I plan to keep it that way. It's would be hard to keep color in on my skin tone. I have one artist I've found locally that I've devoted all my work and future work done. He specializes in black and grey realism, but also has an amazing new-age style that I've thrown into the mix.
More specifics about my tattoo: I definitely have a few more "bourbon street" tattoos that maybe I should have more time to plan.. but I would never regret them. Each has a story so far, and each either show off my Native heritage or my southern antebellum pride. With many more planned, I won't have much fresh skin left! But it's an image I plan to have for myself and I would love to show it off for people to see.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: I have the entire moon cycle- starting at the base of my neck all the way down to my tailbone, with the full moon being in the center. Not only was it beautifully crafted by my favorite local artist, it speaks a lot to me. Being a cancer, I'm considered moon child. The moon cycle has also been very iconic to my culture and has been in a lot of the tales of creation my Cherokee grandmother taught me.
My next tattoo: With my legs covered to about how I want them, next I plan to move into my first entire sleeve on my left arm. I want a realism, down-home, southern Mississippi themed sleeve. something to show off my beloved home state.
