This nurse in training spends her days learning how to help people stay healthy and prevent disease. And she does it all while showing off some serious ink. Hellooooooo Nurse! Meet Jellybean. To submit your tattoos for Tattoo Of The Week, send pictures + answers to the questionnaire below to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Occupation: I am a full time super hero…well super hero in training (RN student) and a part-time artist.
How many tattoos do you have? I have 4 for right now…
Which one is your favorite? My favorite one would have to be my phoenix sleeve.
When and where did you get it? I had it done about 2-3 years ago at inkstop tattoo in NYC.
What does it mean to you? Well the tattoo has a story. But to keep it short and sweet, it is a symbol of my rebirth. I was on a very different path before. Not a very good one I might add. I learned to love myself more and became a stronger person. Now noone can dim my light.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo? 18.
Do you have a particular tattoo artist you go to? If yes, where is he/she located?
I don’t have a particular artist that I go to. If your artwork is on point and fits the idea in my head..tag your it.
Have you ever received a tattoo under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
Does it count if you were drinking while getting it done? Then, yeah.
Do you regret any of your tattoos? Hell no… i regret none of my art.
Are you a tattoo addict? I wouldnt call myself a tattoo addict, but any big moment in my life that deserves remembering deserves a spot on my body.
Why should your tattoo be featured? My tattoo should be featured because it truly means something and represents the strength that every woman should have and the courage to get out of a shitty situation. Only you can set yourself free.
