My first tattoo was a stylized Haida eagle on my lower back. I got this because of my First Nation's heritage and to celebrate getting my driver's license and my first job as an accountant in 2006. It was done my Anastasia Powell in Edmonton, AB.
My second tattoo was the one on my left shoulder. I got this tattoo after my cat, Mr. Salt, died of diabetes on New Years Day in 2007. This tattoo was by Anastasia Powell in Edmonton, AB.
My third tattoo was on my chest. I had a dream shortly after moving to Vancouver that I had a tattoo on my chest of heart shaped cherries with stars shooting out from them. So the next day I was impulsive and I booked a consultation with an artist.
The fourth tattoo I got was my 3/4 sleeve. I went through a very tough time in my life and I wanted a tattoo to celebrate that I was overcoming the rough period. I wanted a Japanese tattoo with flowers and wind bars. This tattoo was done by Shoko Sonoda in Vancouver, BC in 2010.
My last tattoos were a Christmas gift from my husband. I've always hated my armpits, I mean, no ones is pretty, but I thought mine were particularly ugly. I may get more stars added on to the tattoo in the future. These tattoos were done by Amanda Murray in Richmond, BC.
