Inked Girls: Melanie Hickman
Myself in a sentence: I want to travel the world and get tattooed in every different country. I want to be succesful and model & act and spend my days drinking Sailor Jerrys and listening to Dallas Green. Until then I guess I'll just work until I can fund it. Or marry someone that can.
The design and themes of my tattoos: lettering,pin-ups,stars
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: I cannot pick. It's either the portrait of Marilyn Monroe on my thigh. I have a major obsession with her. She's all over my room in wallpaper, canvases and posters & dvds. Or my peacock sidepiece. A peacock is associated with Asian philosophy and is believed to reflect who is optimistic about life. It reminds me that whenever things are tough, there's always someone worse off and I should be thankful for what I do have.
My next tattoo: My next tattoos are all planned. Its just the funding i need. Im going to complete Marilyn with Audrey, Elvis and Buddy Holly for my Hollywood Legends thighpiece. A sunflower for my Nana as its her favourite flower and she's jealous that she doesnt have anything on me at the minute. I'm also going travelling in November, where I'm going to start my sleeve and get a new piece in every country. So Cambodia, New Zealand, Oz & Thailand. I really want a tebori tattoo :]
