Name: Kirstin "Kit" Henderson
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was 18, just a month before I turned 19 when I went for my tattoo, which is a set of big feathery wings on my back.
What is your employment status/occupation and do your tattoos effect it?
I am a full-time student, and my tattoo doesn't affect it. I have also had bar and waitressing work, but it did not affect that either.
What is your favorite piece? What is the story behind it?
The story behind my wings is a bit boring! I've always dreamed of flying with wings, ever since I can remember, it was always something I've wanted. They also symbolize creativity to me, in that, as long as you are able to spread your wings and be as creative as you can, you'll always find happiness.
Do you have a favorite artist who you go back to or do you collect different artists work? Why?
The man who did my work, was a man named Louis, but I cant remember what his last name was, unfortunately. I would go back to him for other pieces if I decided I wanted more. I wouldn't collect different peoples work, because I know I'd just end up completely covered in them and they might not be as meaningful to me.
Have you faced any specific discrimination due to being tattooed?
I have so far only received positive comments about my tattoo, which is just amazing. It's in a place where it can be covered easily, so most employers might not even know it was there, if I was in uniform or a smart blouse.
Any other comments?
I am seriously thinking of getting more, but I need to be careful as I don't want to rush into getting them. I always think about what it is exactly that i want, and how it would look when I am in my 80's.
