The design and themes of my tattoos: Apocalypse. Alice half sleeve still in progress.... should be finished soon. I was inspired when I saw the tattooer/artist as she drew Alice with a half shaved head, gaged ears A gas mask holding the Alice in Wonderland holding the Alice Bunny rabbit. I use to raise Flemish Giants and so when I saw the piece I had to have it. It is so me! It also has a the Chesire cat, a pink flamingo, My Mexican kneed tarantula I own in as well a rat in a cup with a bow on its tail.
I have a skull and snake on my left thigh due to my fact of my love for my Redtail Boas. I had never had a Skull and wanted one, so I got my first skull early 2013. This piece is still being touched up as well.
My half sleeve of my Dog Ringo who passed in 2009.It is his portrait and looks just like him as well as having his name tattooed under his face. Again this dog was everything to me. He was a mastiff/sharpie/boxer mix.
My Flemish Giant Mr. Bean who passed in 2012.He was my first Flemish giant and I love him dearly.He died an unexpected death.His head is tattooed on the left side of my neck.
I have butterflies and filigree on my right side of my neck going down the front side of my right chest. This tat was inspired by a manx calico cat named Kittles that passed in 2007 and every spring after her death I would see butterflies by her grave side.
I always wanted a tattoo on my head so I shaved the right side of my head April 2013 and had a beautiful Butterfly with a tiger face tatted on my head with filigree connecting to my butterflies on my right side.
More specifics about my tattoo: I have had my belly tattooed with a rose spread to cover up an insicion on my belly from surgery and 2 C-sections.
I got a kitty kat tatted on private part on the top side with big beautiful green eyes. Just because I wanted one and another model friend had 2 cat eyes and whiskers so I decided to go bigger and get the entire head.
I have a huge dragon on my back picking his teeth where he just killed the man in armor, the armor laying beside him.
I have John 3:16 the entire scripture tattooed on my lower left calf as to remind me daily why I am here today.
My Iguana Midori Tura tattooed over my left breast in memory if him after his passing and to cover up an old tat. I did not want flowers and such I wanted my Iguana. I am a huge reptile fan and own many.
Japenese letters of my best friends name in the inside of my left arm.
I have a black dot tattood above my lip on the left side when my Monroe piercing would not heal so I just had one put on premantly.

My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: Lonestar, a Protrait of my 11yr old Quarter horse. He is the love of my life. He is everything to me, my heart my inspiration for getting up in the morning. I Got him 2yrs ago when I traded an Umbrella Cockatoo bird for him. From the moment I laid eyes on him I knew he was the love of my life. With that being said I had the awesome artist Hammer Hands with Ink Works tattoo in Cleveland Tn tattoo him on my right thigh.Beautiful piece of work. And by far my favorite tat of all time. I will be adding my other two horse 2014 to this tat as we are going to have all 3 connecting.
My next tattoo: Were roses over my right side of my back that are very large. I have since added a white Dove and another Rose to this piece to give color and vibrance to the old piece.
