Inked Girls: Katie Jo Dietz
Myself in a sentence: I am a very bubbly and positive person! I always look on the bright side of things no matter how bad it possibly is! People might say I am quite a social butterfly!! I am 22 years old and have my own hair salon. I am also an educator for a hair company called sexy hair. So I guess you could say I am an artist! I am very creative and passionate for this industry. I feel lucky every day to have found something I absolutely love. Growing up I always knew I wanted tattoos, my mom couldn't stand it. She hated the thought of me changing my body. Now I am covered in ink, my mom still thinks I'm beautiful and I have a successful career at such a young age. And plan to get many more tattoos : )
Occupation: Hair stylist
Hometown: North east, md
The design and themes of my tattoos: They are classy black and grey. I only have color on my arm. My back is very flowy with negative ink and ink without harsh outlining. I love it to look elegant.
More specifics about my tattoo: My back piece started as small wings. Then a quote. Then I let my artist do the whole thing and I love it. My sleeve still needs finished and I want flowers everywhere for I am very girly!!
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo would be the handprint of my nephew from when he was 6 months old. My nephew was born methadone and in the NICU for a couple of weeks. I hold a special place in my heart for him because he is my first nephew and I am head over heels obsessed with him. His handprint puts a smile on my face every time I look down at it.
My next tattoo: I want a diamond tattoo because besides being obsessed with my nephew I am also obsessed with sparkles. If I could I would wear glitter every day. It has been an obsession since I was little! I have to have a diamond on me! I wish they invented sparkly tattoo ink!
