Skin&Ink Doll– Sassy

Location: Cody, WY

Career/occupation: Retail sales/Tattoo shop manager

Photographer: Justin Mariani

I believe the old-school style keeps the origin of tattooing around, and also shows how far the tattoo world has come. It’s the roots of tattoo culture.

My arm was done by several artists, including Cameron Springer, Keith Carol and Justin Warn, all out of Orange County, CA. As for the rest of my work, my chest, thigh and lower leg were done by my fiancé, Justin Mariani, owner of Human Canvas Tattoo in Cody, WY.

Different limbs and body areas of mine have very different styles of ink. I can’t really say there was a thought process behind that. As far as my arm goes, I just put things together as I went, using images that I really liked. As for my thigh, I love Marilyn Manson, and the photo I chose really stuck out for me, because it wasn’t the typical “Manson” shot you repeatedly see. My lower leg is from the movie Cry Baby and I’m currently in the process of making it a whole lower leg sleeve.

The script below my neck says, “Break My Heart, For What Breaks Yours.” To me that was a very clever way to offer so many reminders to myself to try not to put things in a one-sided perspective. It reminds me to see how others may feel in a situation, and not to assume.
