I met the lovely Angelique in Admiral tattoo studio in Amsterdam. It was a spur of the moment trip, and a lucky tattoo appointment, she just happened to have a cancellation the weekend we wanted to go, hooray! She was really friendly and chatted to us before and after tattoo time, even reccomended a steak house we could go to for tea, but we are veggie so didn't take her up on that. I got a polaroid of me and her, she was excited cos it was polaroid, ace! Most importantly she gave us the most awesome tattoos which I will have on my wrist forever. You can check out her art at this website http://www.salonserpent.com/Home.html ....YEAH!!! She inspired me to make my work more a part of me, I love what I do, and want to keep it that way!
More about the ladies of 2009 coming soon. x x x
