Inked 1 of 14

People often ask me what my tattoos mean. Most of the time people don't even know I have any unless I'm in a bikini, so a lot of them go unnoticed. Shit, sometimes I forget I have them. Since I love body art and the stories behind them, I thought I'd share mine 1 tat at a time. I get tats that represent things important to me, or symbolize and important moment or time of my life. I implore u to share urs as well, I'd love to hear about it!

Tattoo: Sampaguita flower w/ 3 stars
Location: Back of neck
Arist: Shit I forget his name, Mike maybe? From Everlasting on Divisadero
Story: Being a Philippine Queen, it was inevitable that I'd pay homage to my homeland with a tat. But I didn't want it to be something I had already seen before so I came up with this idea of a sampaguita flower which is the countries national flower. However, it looked too simple so I added the stars from the Filipino flag which represent the major geographical divisions of the country: Luzon, Mindanao, and Visayas.

(And p.s. I miss my purple hair wah)
