Myself in a sentence: I am an Advertising Photographer, in my 4th year of college, an aspiring model and engaged.
The design and themes of my tattoos: lettering,horror
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo would have to be the portrait of my mother on my back/shoulder. I got it for my mother's birthday and mother's day. She was diagnosed not that long before I got the tattoo with Dementia and Early On-set Alzheimer's. I got it so that she knows even if she forgets me, I will never forget her.
My next tattoo: I plan on adding on to my arm to complete a half-sleeve. I have a Day of the Dead inspired Marilyn Monroe portrait on my arm and will eventually get diamonds and flowers surrounding her, as well as a spiderweb around my shoulder and connecting to my chest tattoo.
