Inked Girls: Lizzette Nicole Velazquez
Myself in a sentence: I am a very colorful, independent, and free spirited person. People love me because of my honesty and fearlessness. I am a very loyal friend, and those who are closest to me know this. I am a metal head but I am a hippie on the inside. I am a pit bull lover and advocate against BSL. I have two beautiful pit bulls of my own whom I love more than anything in this world.
On top of all that, I managed to survive after everything that has happened to me. Dec 10th, 2011 I was hit by a car and had to have emergency brain surgery. I had to learn to walk and talk again and I'm truly lucky to be here. A year later my husband and I bought our first home and moved all our stuff in to have it burnt down just two days later. I am what people like to call a survivor. I always have been and I will continue to be no matter what this life has in store for me. Conquering my fears is something I have always done. As long as I'm here I will continue to do so. My bucket list is pretty crazy. And before I die I will cross everything off of it!
One sentence doesn't do me justice.

The design and themes of my tattoos: There is no specific design or theme to my tattoos. My left arm will all be in color and my right sleeve will be contrasting with all black and grey and some red. The theme of my tattoos I guess is defining me. I have an elaborate story so why not tell it through my tattoos?
More specifics about my tattoo: After my accident I have decided to tattoo myself a lot more than I would have had the accident never happened. There is no job/career that I would/could choose to do that wouldn't accept me the way i am because that is no job I would want anyway.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is definitely the sleeve on my left arm. There is no point in lying about it since it wouldn't make sense. Basically the first time I took LSD my husband and I drew it on an 8x10 sheet of paper in pencil. While we were drawing it we were seeing it in all the colors it has in it now in the tattoo. I am definitely happy to say it is the most original tattoo I have ever seen. And the only thing about it someone could copy is the idea behind it. And since it came from our heads, nothing about it could be replicated. My tattoo artist will also tell you that it is the most original tattoo he has ever done. I however do not condone drug use. And I don't think that its something you should go out and do. Its reckless and dangerous. Would I take it back though: never.
My next tattoo: My next tattoo will definitely be adding to my sleeve to complete it. After that will probably be the start of my sleeve on my other arm.
