  1. Thanks for the kind words, y'all. I was in the midwest (Montrose, Iowa) up until September, and now have made my tattooing home at Blackheart Tattoo in San Francisco. I will always be a midwestern girl at heart :) The best midwestern tattooers in my opinion: Josh Arment (Aloha Monkey) Nick Colella (CTC) Mario Desa (CTC) Josh Howard (?) Josh Palmer (Aloha Monkey) Tim Beck (Freedom Ink) Jeff Zuck (Name Brand) Brad Fink (Iron Age) Jef Whitehead (Taylor St.) Miles Maniaci (Deluxe) Turbo (Taylor St)-- currently out with a broken hand Erik Gillespie (CTC) Zack Kinsey (Uptown) I could go on and on.......
  2. Don't obsess about it. It's on your hand. Looks fine.
  3. I am almost 35. I started tattooing when I was 19. I have conscientiously put off having kids because I know that it will affect my career, and I am not willing to compromise that. The effect of being so career focused, however, is that now I'm almost 35 and everyone I know has a family except for myself. That biological clock is for real, and the topic is at the front of my brain on a daily basis now, but I cannot seem to make a decision! I know I'm probably wrong about this, but for me it feels like a tattoo-or-family, all or nothing scenario. I'm sure it's a little different than with the dudes, because motherhood is a little more all-encompassing for a woman with pregnancy, nursing, blah blah blah..... It's terrifying.
  4. About 7 or 8 years ago Bill Demichele took a photo of me at a convention, and I asked him not to publish it, as I had no interest in the tattoo being seen publicly. He said he would not, yet six months later, there it was in print. Every idiot in America has that tattoo, and it makes me sick.
