Violets

2008

(right arm, at elbow)

Violets are my birth flower, purple is my favorite color, and I have always loved delicate black spirals and curliques. When I described what I wanted to the artist who did my friend VeganFemme S, she said she knew exactly what to do. She is based in Virginia but was traveling through Chicago on a tattoo tour and we had only met over the phone but knew me immediately when we met.

Amy is well-known for her work: she was recently featured in BUST Magazine for her work with mastectomy patients and nipple repigmentation, and her Pink Ink Fund that helps women pay for their work after surgery. I am honored and proud to have her art on my body.
