Describe yourself in 5 words or less.

The best ever, sweet & nice!


What drew you into the world of tattooing? What inspired you?

I was always painting and drawing as a kid, and tattooing is just a grown up version of that! When I started to really get interested in tattoos was when one of my good friends was tattooing in San Diego. He was such a good artist and a great person. It made me think I could do it, too.


When did you get your first tattoo? What was it?

That same friend in San Diego did my first two tattoos. One was the symbol for Scorpio on my ankle, then later he added some flowers around it.


How many tattoos have you inked total?

I know it's in the 1000s range. I have been tattooing for 14 years.


What's your signature style?

I do a lot of color work but I am a very versatile tattooer. I can do just about anything.


What's your favorite tattoo that you've ever inked on someone?

One of my favorites is a portrait of Bella Lugosi that I did a few months ago on my now-ex-boyfriend.


Who is your tattoo crush (e.g. whose tattoos do you admire)?

Mike Devries, Shige and Danielle Oberosler


What advice do you give to someone who's looking to get their first tattoo?

Take the time to research your subject matter and your artist. Make sure you have a good vision together.


What is the hardest part of being on Ink Master?

The schedule is grueling and we don't have enough time to draw! The flash competitions are not for me. I was not expecting this type of situation at all.


Why do you think you are the Ink Master?

I am an Ink Master because I have been tattooing and honing my skills for a very long time. I have a great respect for my craft, my fellow artists and my clients. I am very good at what I do.
