“I was waiting for my train on the way to work when an old lady passed me by. She looked at me and said: ‘Girl, you are so beautiful and expressive. Unlike anyone I’ve ever seen.’ Heart-warming, hearing that from a 75-year-old, who grew up in a world where tattoos weren’t accepted as normal at all.”


“I never had anyone fighting my urge to get tattooed, on the contrary: my dad loves my tattoos. He is always encouraging me to wear shorts to show off my tattooed legs. My father is kind of a hippie, he loves free-spirited people and music and I inherited both loves. I never judge a book by its cover, but I enjoy looking at an original one.”
