Inked & Awesome - Samantha Robson
Name: Samantha Robson
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
My first tattoo was 2 days after my 18th, it is 3 stars down my foot with Greek lettering spelling 'Sister' around it, my Sister has the same and my Mam with 'Daughter'.
What is your employment status/occupation and do your tattoos effect it?
I work weekends in TJ Hughes, I have a tattoo on my arm and have to wear a long sleeve shirt to cover it.
What is your favorite piece? What is the story behind it?
I can't pick a favourite as they all mean a lot to me. Well the stars I've already mentioned, my heart & roses, one of my favourite quotes ever was 'faith makes everything easy, love makes everything possible' so I had this quote interpreted into a tattoo.
The lyrics on my ribs are from a Good Charlotte song, I've listened to them since I was about 12, that song and the lyrics have always meant a lot to me.
My back is probably the only one i got because it was just something I wanted rather than having a big meaning behind it, but my partners mam did help design it so that adds a little to it.
My arm is a quote from Alice's adventures in Wonderland, as soon as I read that quote it stuck to me, it makes me think of my partner and how much he has changed me and my life, and even if in the future we ever split this quote will always ring true to him and our relationship.
Do you have a favorite artist who you go back to or do you collect different artists work? Why?
So far all 5 are from different artists, this is due to recommendations from friends, my last was at Inkslingers in Newcastle who I plan to stay with in the future.
Have you faced any specific discrimination due to being tattooed?
I've never really had any discrimination from having them.
