What was your first tattoo?

Tattoos signify timelines in my life. The first tattoo I received was a large piece on my back that represents my diagnosis of Graves Disease. Since then, 'ink therapy' is a coping mechanism that I use to celebrate challenges that I have persevered. I have a piece to represent different stages in my life. The most recent is a watercolor rose on my inner forearm with the script ‘everything happens for a reason’ in honour of my mom - my best friend - inked after her unexpected passing.

Is it true that getting tattoos is addictive?

I feel that tattoos are works of art that portray a person's life stories, and I have collaborated in the design of many of them, including a very large piece that wanders from my armpit down my leg, which features digital camo mingling with peony blooms. I love finding new creative ways to incorporate my passions into my tattoo designs.

If you were voted Inked Magazine's cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?

I would invest some towards my brand and company, 'Just Hunt'; and allocate a portion to the Women's Hunting Association to continue educating women in the outdoors, and invest in my children's futures(and set some aside for my next ink session!)
