Laura had a tattoo cover up project she wanted help with; when she came in for the first time, she was very enthusiastic. She had read my website, brought print outs, and was super stoked to get started--- my favorite type of client! I jokingly said that she deserved a gold star for her efforts to be my Number 1 Client and it became our stock jest to trade back and forth. She says, "I've been waiting for a long time to get a cover up tattoo. My partner found Victoria's website and I knew this would be the woman to help me.
I've always wanted another dragon, but also knew it would be a journey over several months. Dragons have meant strength, protection, and perseverance. We think they are gone, then they reappear in another time or in another place. My Dragon represents a new time in my life. And she is badass."
