Inked Girls: Laura (Lou) Tveite
Myself in a sentence: I am a tattooed, pin-up enthusiast who can drink most men under the table or beat most anyone in cribbage.
Occupation: Nursing Assistant
Hometown: Minneapolis, MN
The design and themes of my tattoos: I really appreciate every form of art so my body is eclectic. I have everything from traditional Japanese to Sailor Jerry. My favorite style is traditional Americana.
More specifics about my tattoo: I have everything from my toes to my lip tattooed. Both my feet are completely done (one with brass knuckles the other with a straight razor). My legs have a few big pieces. There is a huge 1950's pin-up on my left ribcage/down my leg. My chest is done and I have two full sleeves. Little ones on my tummy, hip, back, knuckles, etc. I just love collecting and don't plan on stopping any time soon. I am currenlty in school to become a nurse, so I'll have to wait for my neck and tops of hands.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: I have a piece on my left forearm that is a Zombie-like pin-up holding a banner that says, "Mommy's Little Monster". After 100+ hours of tattoos, my mom complained about how I never had a "Mom" tattoo...so I had to get one. It just so happens to be my favorite Social Distortion song, too.
My next tattoo: Finish my left arm sleeve. I need to finish my projects before I start new ones.
