What do you do &how long have you done it?

I've been tattooing for a living for 9 years. I’ve done other things in life for work and play: jewelry making, sewing construction, boat building, and illustration. But tattooing is my vocation.

What do you love most about what you do?

I love the variety of people i work with. There is no single type of person who gets tattoos; I talk with a range of socioeconomic classes, cultural backgrounds, ages. You never know who will walk through the door.

Where do you come from and how did tattooing come into your life?

I was going to the University of Vermont when I got the opportunity to start my apprenticeship. I could tell school was not going to get me what i wanted out of life so i put everything i had into tattooing. Still got a degree but haven't used it yet.

Tell us about motorcycles in your life

I've always wanted to ride when I was a kid. My dad would race and I would go to the track with him. In high school I drove a scooter everywhere, then natural progression to a dirt bike and then my first bike a Honda cm 450. 

How did you hear about Babes Ride Out?

From my women's motorcycle crew. There's a real supportive team for girls here in Brattleboro.

What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out?

Motorcycle world can be toxically masculine, I think safe spaces are super important and especially ones that showcase traits in people that we are used to being marginalized. I think moto culture can feel threatened by strong women and pushing people's perspectives is ok, but it can be tiring too and it's a relief to be around people who are here to simply celebrate each other.
