    I started getting tattooed professionally 30 years ago......my first tattoo was done by Juli Moon at Dragon Moon Tattoo in Baltimore, Maryland! Since then I have been tattooed by 102 different tattooers.....seeking out the best possible tattooers I could to do the work! In the summer of 2011 I was asked if I would like to apprentice to tattoo by a tattooer in Philadelphia....and after some thought I decided I would like that...however that did not work out as I had hoped it would! I was asked a few months later by another tattooer in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland if I would like to apprentice under her! I thought very hard about it and decided that this really is what I would like to do....so i told her yes! I finished my apprenticeship as of June 13, 2014 (Friday the 13th) and am tattooing at Gemini Tattoo in Odenton, Maryland! Anything else you would like to know....please feel free to ask!

  1. Yes....and every time with a straight face I tell them that "It was to honor the sacrifice of a baby to satan" If they don't run away......I let them know that while a lot of people now do get tattooed because there is some story behind it.....that a lot of tattoos have no meaning and are just cool things people just wanted to get....
  2. I never even thought or worried about something like this honestly! I got tattooed for me and most of the time I never think of myself as a "tattooed person".....I am just another human being that instead of adorning myself with gold and silver jewelry and the "latest fashion" decided to add some color to her body! I'd like to see people move past seeing others as "tattooed people".....nothing special....nothing different! We're all just people..... My 2 cents
  3. Your tattoo is on this webpage..... Creative Tattoo Art on Hands & Fingers
  4. Ha ha ha.........I tattooed my Hubby's calf this past Saturday and he is going through it right now! He even said......"It must be worse for me now because I am older!" I remember it being bad for a few days and gradually getting better.....but neither of us had thought about it until he stood up the next morning! :)
  5. I'm so stoked you were able to get tattooed by Mike! He does amazing work......definitely tag me in any photos you post up..... Glad I was able to help out! :D
  6. I doubt I will venture down.....if so it would be Sunday! Check out Mike Fite.....not sure what you are into but he does some nice traditional tattooing! Tell him Bunny said hi too! :) I'll be at the shop tattooing all day tomorrow....so like I said....maybe Sunday but probably not.... Enjoy!!!
  7. I understand you not wanting to seem like a douche......but never forget that the tattoo artist is being paid to do a service for you and that really is the end of it! I think too many tattooers forget that this is a job and that if someone is going to enter a contest......especially if they the tattooer ask them too.....then maybe they should help to pay for that! The artist benefits......not the customer.....and I think it's sad that customers worry about offending the people they are paying good money to do a service! I mean....as long as you are tasteful in asking then there should be no reason someone should get pissy about it.....imo If you are stoked and want to enter contests on your own then I say go for it!!! There is nothing wrong with you wanting to show off your work and give your artist some publicity! it's just my 2 cents is all.....
  8. Some things to think about...... Would you personally rather have your back finished at a convention.....or would you feel more comfortable in your tattoo artists shop? Is your tattoo artist paying for you to enter the contest or are you? Is your tattoo artist knocking off the price of you getting into the convention off the tattoo price? (in other words.....is the artist cutting you a break off the tattoo for your trouble?) Never forget....this is your tattoo and I am sure you didn't get the tattoo to win awards but for your own pleasure of having it! Also keep in mind that if you indeed do win an award......it is proper etiquette for you to give the award (trophy/plaque) to the tattoo artist! Just some things to think about is all..... Good luck with it all if you do decide to do it!
  9. It was great to see everyone there! :)
  10. Thanks @suburbanxcore .......I didn't realize Civ or Todd will be there.....very cool!
  11. I'll be there all three days! I'm helping out in a booth with Marvin Moskowitz and Timmy Adams.........please come by and say hi...I am easy to spot! LOL
  12. I've been talking off and on for 7 years with Scott Sterling about tattooing me but I just never seem to have the right time to make the trip down! the timeing was perfect and he had the drawing all ready for me.....I am so stoked to have this tattoo finally! :D
  13. Yes, I did......I got the tattoo below from David Bruehl......and I got another piece to my snake (no photo of it) by Mike Fite! Mike Fite and I have an agreement.... He started a skin tear snake head on me about a year and a half ago sooooo......every time we see each other....he adds another piece of the snake on my body somewhere as a filler piece....LMAO! :D
  14. Well.....I went to Virginia Beach the Thursday night before the Richmond Tattoo show and woke up Friday morning to go to Ancient Art Tattoo (VaBch) to be tattooed by Scott Sterling! What was going to be a small banger to palm size tattoo.....turned into this........ Due to a lot of weight loss....I do have a roll on my side.....Scott used the fact that I have this and made it so the mouth opens and closes.....LMAO! Very fresh photos....sorry the photos isn't better!
  15. I have actually been trying to travel more rather than go to conventions....I really am not a fan of conventions but I was going to this one every year up until Billy passed away! Too many people I'd like to add though in one place for me not to pass up the opportunity! ;)
