This is my watercolor American Bison. They are one of my favorite animals, and bison used to roam around the city I was born (well, a long while before I was born), and they have a large bison statue there. This was done by both Erin and Melissa at Lady Luck Tattoo in Owensboro, KY.

There’s an East Asian belief that “an invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread my stretch or tangle, but it will never break.” My family has been through more than our fair share of tragedies this year, and, to me, this tattoo is a reminder that not everything is up to us. When you go through tough experiences and can’t possibly understand why they’ve happened, I find sometimes you just have to take comfort in the belief that some things are simply out of our hands.
This piece was done by Kit Hall at Deluxe Tattoo in Chicago, IL. She’s an amazing artist and her attention to detail is phenomenal.

These are my 3rd and 4th tattoos, done by Race Dylan at Ink & Dagger in Atlanta, GA.
On my right middle finger is an Aya, or fern; a West African Adinkra symbol of resilience, resourcefulness, and perseverance through difficult times. I recently graduated college and also resurfaced from several years of deep and persistent boughts of anxiety and depression. For me, it represents not only my years of academic and emotional perseverance, but also a future reminder to ‘bloom where I am planted’.
The bottom image is of the line sets on my lower back. These are an homage to Otzi, aka “The Iceman” who I have been fascinated with for nearly my entire life. Found in 1991 in the Alps, Otzi is the oldest mummified human ever to be found in Europe at around 3300 years old. He has these same tattoos on his lower back, which are hypothesized to have been a form of mystic or holistic medicine (as similar marks appear on the back of one of his knees and one of his ankles) likely as a means of targeting joint pain. As a child, I was obsessed with a PBS Nova documentary about him which would eventually sparked my interests in history, global culture, material culture, archaeology, and the human body. These childhood interests led me on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology with focus areas in Paleoarchaology and Material Culture this past spring. I also have an extensive background in film and now hope to pursue a career helping to make documentaries along the lines of the ones that inspired me most as a child.

My second tattoo, cover art from the Descendents first album “Milo Goes to College”. I’ve always had a strong connnection to their lyrics and this my way to make them a little homage :)
