Inked and Awesome - Katiee from Durham.


Name: Katiee
Age: 21
Location: Durham, UK.


How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
18, it was a tattoo on my right foot, swirls and stars.

What is your employment status/occupation and do your tattoos effect it?
It's currently unemployed, but previous jobs, my tattoos have no effect whatsoever. As I cover the one on my arm up, if necessary.

What is your favorite piece? What is the meaning behind it?
My favourite (although I love all my tattoos, or I wouldn't have them;)) is the swallow I have on my left forearm as its in memory of my Granda who sadly passed away from Cancer in 2009.



Do you have a favorite artist who you go back to or do you collect different artists work? Why?
Yeah, I only go to Richy, he's done all my tattoos except the one on my foot. He's an awesome tattooist as well awesome person, he's based in Spennymoor, Durham. :)

Have you faced any specific discrimination due to being tattooed?
Not anything I've been aware of.


Any other comments?
I think the only thing I've ever really been discriminated by is not my tattoos but my hair colour, as I quite like having it various colours such as Pink, Blue, Purple, Lilac, Bright Pillarbox Red. :)

  1. Cool stuff. Many tats have different meanings. In this day and age it's so stupid to get discriminated against because of them, or hair color.
