Tell us about your featured tattoo
I've always had a thing for Russian Dolls since childhood and I knew that at some point, I wanted to get a Russian doll tattoo. Sam was visiting and I showed him around, he was so grateful he offered to tattoo me - yes, for free - and I immediately thought of a drawing Naomi made for me. A few days later, the magic happened. Initially, I wanted to keep it black & white with a dash of red but now, I'm ready to add so more colour.

Do you have any other tattoos
I have two others: a viking symbol on my forearm and the one you can spot on my left foot.

Do you plan on getting more
Yes! I want to get started on a half sleeve as soon as I can afford it.

How do your family, friends and loved ones feels about your tattoos
My friends actually paid for one of them, it was my birthday gift a couple of years ago. They all agree that they reflect my personality and who I am. My mom wasn't smitten at first but she grew to understand that she doesn't have to worry about my health or my career and I think she likes them: she made a compliment about the Russian doll a few weeks ago... it was a first and it made me very proud.

What do you do to pass the time while getting tattooed: 
I talk. And I drink coke.

Any advice for someone who would like to get a first time tattoo:
Make sure it's personal and take time to think about it.

Happy Tuesday!
