I was honored to be featured in Clare November Miles’ book: Painted Ladies: History of Female Tattoo Artists in Australia.
Clare spent three years writing her book – the first of its kind – which showcases the accomplishments of outstanding Australian female tattoo artists past and present.
Clare uncovered the various reasons for successes as well as the overwhelming obstacles that preclude most women from achieving greatness.
Clare asked me a variety of questions about my tattooing style, inspirations and what it is like being a female in this industry.
She asked: ‘What inspires you in life and art?’
My reply: My daughter and Mother Earth are my biggest inspirations. My life passion aside from tattooing is trying to help this earth and the animals that inhibit it, live on and be healthy in as many ways as I possibly can.
