about your featured tattoo- is there a background story about why you chose it, or maybe a special meaning? I race airplanes, and I love flying so when I came in with the design idea, Tiffany drew the girl to look more like me
2) Do you have any other tattoos? If so, what do you have and where? I have 16 all together, left foot-Polynesian tribal dolphin, right foot- Polynesian turtle, left calf-baby dragon, left hip-
Polynesian turtle with flower in ocean, right hip- Polynesian flower, left boob-gargoyle resting, left armband of ocean wave, right should cap-my aviatrix representing past airplane racer, left shoulder-gargoyle, right shoulder- fairy, and a black rose, middle lower back- celtic bat, middle of upper back-cupcake, left thigh-six shooter, right thigh- horseshoe, horse, and rose
3) Do you plan on getting more? yes
4)How do your family and friends feel about your tattoo(s)? Have you run into any adversity or negativity because of them? My parents were pretty open minded and yes I have ran into negativity because people associate tattoos with being wild, or not employable.
5)What's the most interesting experience you've ever had in regards to your tattoos? I tend to get hit on by older men in their 60's. Oh, Steve-O from Jackass and I have the same bat tattoo but what's funny at the time I got this, Jackass wasn't even known so I got the design off a pillow that a store sold
6) Any advice for those interested in getting tattooed but haven't gotten one yet? make sure it's something you really want and not so obvious as some employers do not allow tattoos so make sure it's in a spot that can be covered. Do not get a person's name tattooed on you, unless it is one of your child's or someone who has passed away.
7) What is your least favorite part of being tattooed? Do you have any stories/advice to people who are not tattooed? the outlining takes a long time, so once that is done, the rest is a piece of cake.
