This year (2020) marks my 36st year of tattooing. My first tattoo was a dragon on my husband Ronnie's thigh. It took 5 1/2 hours to outline and shade...... then 6 hours to color. That was 1982 in Aurora, Colorado. That same tattoo would take me 2 1/2-3 hours start to finish today. I have now been tattooing full time since 1984. So long ago.
I still love tattooing but, some of the public can be tedious and challenging.
I really enjoy renovations and cover ups. It is very rewarding to "fix" a problem for someone.
I have a new answer to the question of the toughest tattoo I've ever done.....It was on February 8, 2008. It was an upside down portrait of Johnny Depp.....Don't need to do that anymore!
I have thousands of stories for that book I'll write someday and I'll be glad to share some of them. This however, is not a biography.....It is an update.
We've been here in Fairfield, California since May 1998. We opened for business on June 5,1998. I have no clue how much longer I will be working BUT, I still love it so why not? I can still see and I'm still a good tattoo artist.
One final footnote, I'm still a "tough old bird" but, I don't carry a gun anymore because I put my trust in the Lord God.
Much love and many blessings,
