You are one sexy tattooed babe. What was your first tattoo and what made you want to get one?
Thank you. The word “Babygirl” on my lower back. The inevitable “tramp stamp” most of us girls have, but I was 15 and its the nickname my mom gave me. I’m the biggest mommy’s girl ever.
How far do you want to take the tattoos on your body?
I’d like to finish my second sleeve and then see where my imagination takes me.
“I’m far too blunt to be a tease. If I want to get down to business, he’ll know about it”
What do you think causes the “Addiction” to tattoos?
Mine was the sense of accomplishment after sitting through a grueling tattoo session. A lot of mind over matter and sometimes swearing at my artist like a sailor.
More and more guys are getting heavily tattooed, why do you think it is taking longer for the ladies to commit?
I think women underestimate how gutsy they are and what their pain threshold is.
Which tattoo artists have you been to, how do you rate them and who would you still like to get work done by?
I’ve been to quite a few as I’ve moved around a lot. But I definitely recommend Danny at Voodoo Ink and my good friend Marcel Backer.
The tattooed babe look automatically comes across as feisty with a wild side. Does this match your personality?
To an extent yes. I am very feisty but people don’t realise how lady like and petite I am!
What type of guy are you attracted to?
Someone sure of himself that is as ambitious and as driven as I am. How someone makes you feel is far more important than what they look like. And preferably tattooed too.
Would you say you are a tease with the boys?
I’m far too blunt to be a tease. If I want to get down to business, he’ll know about it!
Tell us something about yourself that not many people know?
I love to help people. I haven’t had the easiest of lives so if I can turn negative things that happened to me into positives for others in the form of advice, that would make me truly happy.
Finish these sentences
“The pain of getting tattooed is…”
bearable. You just need to put your big girl panties on.
are awesome! We are so proud of who we are, we wear it on our skin for the world to see. People are too quick to paint us as trouble makers or bad influences.
depends on the partner or partners! [laughs]
“I feel sexy and ready when I’m wearing…”
my tattoos and a killer smile.
“I have a fetish for…”
guys with tattoo sleeves…grrr….
