Name: Cheryl Cantwell
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was 18 years old and I got a manga fairy on the bottom of my back.
What is your employment status/occupation and do your tattoos effect it?
I am unemployed right now. But when I was working in a bar they were a conversation starter with customers as I was aloud to wear what I wanted so they were obviously on show.
What is your favorite piece and what is the meaning behind it?
I don't really have a favorite and I haven't finished yet so maybe it'll be a future one! As for meaning, most of them all have some meaning to me, for example family, experiences in my life and appreciation of art.
Do you have a favorite artist who you go back to or do you collect different artists work? Why?
I have tried a few different places and usually went to one certain shop mainly but now I've moved on again and they have better inks.
Have you faced any specific discrimination due to being tattooed?
Not really you get some looks, but nothing big so far.
