Kelly Heldt is a tattooed history student and stay at home mom of two boys, August (4) and Archer (6). When asked if she ever had a negative experience because of her tattoos she said, 'I get a lot of very dirty looks and some negative comments.' Despite the closed minds of some, she sports her ink proudly and the love she shares with her boys is evident in each photo. Only 18 when she got her first tattoo, 'a dumb 90s face on my thigh' has since been covered up with a Chinese lucky cat holding a scroll that reads "ever since I have been born, things have seemed very unusual." She also has a drawing of a gear on her left arm above her elbow drawn by Archer, which she says is a favorite of her 25 tattoos. When asked what the boys think of her body art she said, 'My kids love them. They like it when I get a new tattoo, so they can examine it, then touch it when it's fully healed.' Her favorite part of being a mother? 'Talking to the A&A Wrecking Crew and getting their perspective on things. The older they get, the more interesting they are.' Perhaps they will grow into young men who embrace ink just as much as their mama does?
