Inked & Awesome - Kayley Mills

Name: Kayley Mills
Age: 23
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was 18 and I'd wanted tattoos for a long time so for my 18th birthday I got a small one on my stomach because I was too scared to get anything bigger but since then I've had 4 more tattoos and they keep getting bigger and bigger each time I get one done.
What is your employment status/occupation and do your tattoos effect it?
I work in a supermarket and they don't really like your tattoos being on display too much but theres not really much they can do from stopping you getting them so if you want them they would prefer you to get them somewhere you could hide them.

What is your favorite piece? What is the story behind it?
My favourite piece is one of my most recent tattoos, I got it about 4 months ago, its a vintage camera and film roll on my forearm. I love this because I've always loved taking photographs and I have for as long as I can remember. I just love how a picture can capture a certain feeling, time, memory and lets you remember it forever. So I got it represent that. I just love the design and colours used and I think it represents me perfectly.

Do you have a favorite artist who you go back to or do you collect different artists work? Why?
I have my tattoos by a few different artists, but I recently found a new artist who I absolutely adore and I don't think I would go to anyone else. Her names Raychel Maughen and she works at Arthur T sharpes in Heaton. Her work is so unique and everything she designs is one of. I just love her style.

Have you faced any specific discrimination due to being tattooed?
A Lot of people have commented that as a girl I shouldn't be covering my arms/body with tattoos as they don't think girls suit them or should get them, but its my personal preference and I think girls look stunning when they cover themselves.
