Tess got her first tattoo (a butterfly with tribal designs) at the early age of 16. “I had wanted a tattoo for years and on my 16th birthday my mom finally agreed to let me get one.” Now at age 23,...

Andrea Graves

From the earliest age that I can recall, I have had a fascination with tattoos and the creative arts.  I have been fortunate to be able to make a career out of that passion, working as a nail technician for the last 12 years and as a make up artist as well for 9. Both of these professions allow me...

Emma Holland

I got my first tattoo (Hokusai's "The Great Wave" on the inner left forearm) as soon as I was 18, much to the dissapointment of my Japanese mother.

Ashley Blair

Ashley knew she wanted to be fully covered with tattoos at the age of 16. She got her first tattoo from Ory at Pair ‘o’ Dice when she was 19, that's when the addiction started. She says, “My favourite part of my left arm is the large sugar skull done by Doug at 4 More Tattoos. The skull is...
