Now that we’ve talked a bit about the origins of this tattoo artist, we’re going to skip over the romantic part of her love and grief, addictions, and rehab. This is where ink matters! Let us have a look at how and when he started the career which propelled him to fame. After getting her first tattoo at the age of fourteen (the letter J dedicated to her boyfriend), she realized it was her world. Soon after, she decided to drop out of school and ran away from home, thus immersing herself in her future professional career. Within a year, after she lied about her actual age, she started tattooing her friends and acquaintances. A year later, in 1998, she officially started working at the Sin City store. After some time she moved to Blue Bird Tattoo2 in Pasadena, California. Red Hot Tattoos and Inflections were some of the other studies she did before joining True Tattoo, where she eventually established herself as a great tattoo artist. And finally, a springboard to the glory of Miami Inc.
