I got my first tattoo when I was 20. A few of my friends were going to get tattooed so I decided to tag along. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted so I just got a small star outline like my older sister had. She was 7 years older than me. I thought she was so cool because she had what I use to think was a lot of tattoos! Now that I look back on it, 7 tattoos isn’t very many! At the age of 22 I began getting more heavily tattooed. I have always been very creative. I love self expression and greatly appreciate art. Some people like to hang their art on a wall but I prefer to wear mine. All of my tattoos are meaningful and have a story behind them. I do not have a favorite for this reason. The majority of my work has been done by Billy White at Downtown Tattoo in Zanesville, OH. He is an awesome traditional artist. Some additional artists that I’ve been tattooed by are : Stephanie Tomlinson, Jamie Hickey, Kevin Stress, Don Colling, Joshua Williams and Josh “Cookie” Cook .
