TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE! I call myself "The Tatted Professional", because to most it is such a contradiction. The perception of what is and what should be often bump heads. I am an educated woman with tattoos who is usually judged based upon my body art and not the words that are articulated. Once a woman scared to embrace all that is me, I have fallen in love with the woman who is my daily reflection. I may defy the odds, but who is to say that being abnormal isn't THE NEW NORMAL. I have become Empowered!
