Inked Girls: Samantha Chappell
Myself in a sentence: I am a driven, goal oriented young woman. I will be getting off active duty service the first week of December. I've been active duty in the Army for 3 years and reserve a little longer. I enlisted at the age of 17 and will be turning 21 soon. I work towards what I want, and nothing will get in my way or achieving my goals. I have 11 tattoos thus far and do intend to get more. Thank you!
Hometown: Holly Springs, NC

My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo would probably be the one on my ankle; it states, " for those I love, I will sacrifice" and it's got the support ribbon for the troops and the breast cancer awareness ribbon. It stands for I will defend everything and everyone with my military service but It's also for my grandma who had breast and bone cancer. She didn't win the fight, she passed away last month but I hope others have the same willingness to fight!
My next tattoo: I want to continue down my arm. I have an absolute obsession with Disney and eventually want to have a disney sleeve. I need on to SIMBA who sits on my wrist!
