Inked Girls: Misty Allen
Myself in a sentence: Hey my name is misty I'm 30 years young and live in black wood nj 15 mins outside of philadelphia where I work as a hair stylist for almost 10 years . I'm a devoted mother to my children jimmy (6) and Ava (2) who I have full custody of and enjoy every bit of it ! When my daughter was only 4 months old I split from their father who I spent half of my life with , due to his drug addiction and physical / mental abuse . I met my soul mate shortly after and live happily ! Between the two of us we have 3 children and though our tattoos motorcycles and " rocker" image may look different or make ppl think we live some wild lifestyle we are just like any other loving family , just more colorful ;)
Occupation: Hair stylist
Hometown: Blackwood nj
The design and themes of my tattoos: I would relate the majority of my tattoos to special moments/ people in my life , each happy occasion usually ends in a new tattoo !
More specifics about my tattoo: I have a piece of the 23rs psalm on my chest " for thou art with me " , my memom read it to me at bedtime , it was also read at her and my aunts funeral . I'm not a very religious person but I do know that somewhat of a higher being has walked with me and protected me and I strongly believe that's why I made it out .
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo on myself is my mermaid on my right thigh . As a child I adored " the little mermaid " , Ariel had red hair as I did and seeing a Disney princess with the haircolor I was teased for having made me feel more comfortable with myself . Mermaids also represent freedom and as I mentioned I was in a very abusive relationship for a long time where I felt imprisoned and trapped , I found the strength to leave and life has not been easy but no matter what I'm free !
My next tattoo: I love the water color tattoos ! I have a " day of the dead " watercolor piece in my for my rib cage !
