Where do you live now?

Lowbrow graphic/ illustrative

Scumbags with hearts of gold

tattooing followed by watercolor and leather paint
When did you first hear about Babes Ride Out?
A few years ago I saw people talking about it via Instagram- then my friend Abby (who participated in last years ride) told me about this year and how you were looking for artists to contribute!
What is your connection to the motorcycle community?
I am a tattoo artist and that lifestyle, in my experience is bonded closely to the same biker mentality of freedom, self expression, and not being afraid to take risks. Also, traveling and getting out on the regular. My husband and I rebuilt a 1974 Triumph Bonneville a few years ago and I’ve been pretty smitten with the building community since.
Do you ride? If so, what do you ride?
I have my permit…one of these days I’ll knuckle up and get out there by myself!
If you were a motorcycle what kind would you be?
I guess I’d be the bike that we rebuilt/ chopped up…we named her Mable and she’s really mean- raw and bear bones with an extended girder on the front and a suicide shift- she’s very fast and loud, a bit unrefined in a charming type of way- she’s definitely not for everyone!
What will you be contributing to this years raffle?
This year I am painting an Atwyld jacket!
Tell us about what inspired you to create it?
I’ve actually been painting leather jackets here and there over the past few years. I’m also used to painting my own signs and banners over the years as a traveling tattooer, so when Abby told me about this year’s chance to contribute, I just think that what BRO is all about it so cool, I wanted to get involved. Thank you for having me!
