Myself in a sentence: I'm a tattooist, model, piercer, painter, who started off in fashion and graphic design, I seem to just be fond of creating art in any and every form.
Hometown: Winnipeg, MB, Canada
The design and themes of my tattoos: Usually its some kinda of girly twist on horror/dark themes, I like contrasting themes. I have a sleeve of butterflies I wanted It to seem cliché at first, but each set of wings is really holding a skeleton with a big skull flower in the ditch. Other than that I have an attraction to magical imagery, its an everyday reminder to draw on my own inner powers. Everything near my chest area is bloody cause that's where your life energy comes from.
More specifics about my tattoo: My graveyard half sleeve was my first big tattoo, it represented a place of protection from the world, or my happy place. I have bites from a sexy vampire on my neck cause I've always wanted to be one, the lipstick marks around it are cause she's obviously wearing sexy lipstick while drinking blood. I have a zombie on my hand, my toes say 'death proof' cause my boss and I thought it would be funny when they stick out from under the sheet at the morgue. My ribs on the right side is a tribute to one of my favourite director Tarantino, and I just like classic black cars. Left ribs is a chicano pin up girl cause they're bad ass. My fingers say 'disaster' cause I cant help being one sometimes, but I love every minute of it.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favourite tattoo is the bloody heart on my chest and the adjacent bow stitching up my neck. Apart from just liking the dark theme, to me it symbolizes that we can be misfits, be a little broken, and still have the strength to put ourselves back together and find beauty in imperfection.
My next tattoo: I'm working on filling in the rest of my leg next, I already have a gypsy girl and she needs a zombie hand holding her crystal ball but I have to wait till I get back to Canada to book with my previous artist!
