If you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

What was your first tattoo?

I got my first tattoo at 16 and the only way my mom would sign for it was if it was on my foot. So I got a little quote with a butterfly because my mom has called me her butterfly my whole life.

What’s your most meaningful tattoo?

My most meaningful tattoo is my sleeve. It’s angel themed in honor of my two sisters who passed away.

Which of your tattoos get the most compliments?

I’d say my leg and back pieces get the most compliments. Zach Roberts absolutely killed both pieces.

Which tattoo took the longest to complete?

My leg sleeve took the longest to complete, only because I had to travel for every session.

What was your most painful tattoo?

My most painful tattoo was my “West Coast” tattoo across my stomach.

What tattoo advice can you give to our readers?

My advice would be not to worry about what other people think. I feel like people over think what to get tattooed and it has to have some sort of meaning. I look at my tattoos as art and a way of expressing myself. For some tattoos, I’ve completely let the artist wing it and we’ve created some beautiful art. Do what makes you feel good about yourself. That’s what matters!
