The first mother I want to highlight from my Tattoo Mama Project is Chloe. She drove all the way down to Chicago's south side from Wisconsin just to participate in this project. She could not contain her excitement to be a part of this! She was a delight to work with and I thank her for the rain dance she did in order to keep the rain away and keep our shoot on schedule!
Chloe is a tattooed stay at home mom with an 11 month old baby girl named Evelyn. She says, 'It's the best job I have ever had.' Family is very important, she says her favorite of her 12 tattoos is 'the one that represents my husband and baby', it's a tattoo of the galaxy with two stars that represent her daughter and husband. The two stars stand out because they are the most important things in her world/galaxy. . She has a no nonsense attitude when it comes to family members' opinions about her ink. Her grandmother doesn't 'like' her tattoos. Her response? 'If you don't like tattoos, then don't get one.' Meanwhile, little Evelyn seems supportive of her mom's tattoos because, while nursing she, always 'looks at them and grabs them.' Chloe's favorite part about being a mother is, 'the love (this can be a blessing and a curse), the pride, the adventure and the opportunity to raise on less asshole.' Evelyn has a smart and strong tattooed mama.
