We are so grateful to welcome back our resident tattoo artist Tracey Rose! Being a mom to a beautiful three year old and full time tattoo artist means Tracey is one busy women. She shelved the riding for a bit (as life can require from time to time) but this past year, while at Babes Ride Out East Coast, her passion to ride was ignited once more. After speaking to Brie from Triumph about their modern machines and her epic road trip to Babes, Tracey began her search and fell in love with the Triumph Bonneville T100. Please give a warm welcome back to Tracey Rose and make sure to stop by her booth at Babes Ride Out East Coast 3 to get on the list for a permanent souvenir!

We were so lucky to have you tattoo at Babes Ride Out East Coast last year, what made you want to come back?
It was such an amazing and inspiring weekend! I had the chance to meet so many great ladies, do some cute tattoos, and overall had a total blast. Because I’m tattooing all weekend I get the chance to talk to so many girls, and when you tattoo someone you really do get to know them pretty quickly. I looked forward to coming back all year - I’m totally hooked on BRO.
Give us an update, what have you been up to this year?
We held a second TUHAS Show (The Upcycle Helmet Art Show), which was a HUGE success, and we are now in the process of planning the third. My partner Jim and I are also expanding and moving the tattoo shop to allow for more space, more artists and more availability, and we are also bringing on our friend who is an old tyme barber. It’s been tons of work to create a new space literally from floor to ceiling, but we’re hoping people will love it as much as we do. Basically, Lucky Soul Tattoo is looking to slay 2018!⚡️
What was something you accomplished this this year?
My daughter turned 3 and finally potty trained - parents will understand what a huge accomplishment that is! Do you have any motorcycle highlights from this year?
After leaving BRO I was fired up to get my own bike again, it had been years since my last few lemons. I was talking to Brie from Triumph and she told me all about her ride to BRO and how amazing the Triumph handled. So, shortly after I bought a 2007 Triumph Bonneville T100 - and it’s awesome! The Triumph is an absolute breeze to ride. I’m so excited to be back up on two wheels and can’t wait to get more miles in this season.
Anything you’re looking forward to?
We are planning some great art shows at our new shop in 2018/2019, and as always I’m looking forward to painting more helmets. I’m also taking on a tank for the next TUHAS which will be really fun.
I am really looking forward to this year’s BRO East Coast this year. I can’t wait for another weekend to hang out with more righteous babes - Thanks for having me back!
