Here are a few quotes from a recent interview……
What is your favorite tattoo on your body and what does it symbolize?
My sleeve on my right arm because I got it early on in my career. I got to watch Guy do the tattoo which was really inspiring to see because he was the person that made me want to tattoo and be a better artist.
What were your first thoughts when TLC approached you about being on LA INK?
My heart fell in my stomach and I knew that I was supposed to do this. I don’t know why, but I’ve had the same feeling before when certain opportunities have presented themselves. I’m just trying to roll with it and not expect too much, but enjoy the ride and see where it takes me.
