sinn drella

I’m sure we all know someone who got a very simple tattoo when they turned 18. Not Sinn Drella!

I hope you enjoy these photos of this lovely young woman and her amazing tattoos. Can’t wait to see you back out on the track, Sinn!

About Sinn’s Tattoos
My back piece was done last November by David Digby at Sol Tribe and was my first tattoo. It’s supposed to have a similarity of a Ouija board. I really love what Ouija boards are and what they are supposed to do, connect with the spiritual world. My arm was started in June by Missy Rhysing at Ritual Tattoo and is still a work in progress. I got it right after I broke my ankle, so in a way it can symbolize that moment in life. But it was originally meant as a piece for my mom even though she doesn’t care a whole ton ha.

Here’s something a little different…

Back when we did this shoot (more here), I also took three Polaroids. I finally got around to scanning them.

whack

She may have left roller derby recently, but the fact that she left derby for rugby shows she’s one tough cookie. I hope you enjoy these images of our beloved Whack.

About Whack’s Tattoos
I started getting tattoos when I was 16 years old. My first tattoo was my name in Chinese characters on my ankle. It’s since been covered up with a feather that fades into a flock of birds in honor of the phrase “birds of a feather flock together.” My older sister has the same tattoo and we both got the tattoo after our brother’s passing in 2011. We plan to get scripture added to them at a later time. Another one of my most significant tattoos is a pin up of my mom down my right side. My mom means the world to me so I wanted to make a grand gesture to show her what she means to me and while she’s not the hugest fan of tattoos she’s always been supportive in my decision to put them on my body; all in all she was flattered by the gesture. I also have my zodiac sign, Libra, tattooed on my ankle. Some of my less significant tattoos include: cherries on my big toes, stars on top of my feet, a playboy bunny on my ankle, a black panther on my lower back, fairy wings on my upper back, a chest piece that includes a pair of sparrows and a modern take on a sugar skull, a lotus flower and butterflies on my stomach, Hello Kitty as Jason Voorhees (my first tattoo I got done on Friday the 13th) and a pair of lips with a skull in them on my upper pelvis, a flower on the back of my neck, a flaming heart on the small of my back, a mustache on the inside of my index finger, stars around both of my wrists, and the words “Let it be” on one of my wrists (inspired by the Beatles). Though many of my tattoos have no direct symbolic significance to me they are a part of who I am as an individual and I appreciate every last one for that reason. Most of my tattoos were done by a variety of artists at Lifetime Tattoo in Denver or by independent artists who have no ties to one particular shop.

She’s “purdy”. She’s vicious. She’s Purdy Vicious!

Hope you enjoy these images of this wonderful woman…

About Purdy’s Tattoos
Back of neck is a design a friend drew for me when I was 21 and represents who I am.

The stomach: The pig came first, but it looked silly sitting there in empty space so I added the grass and flower. Then, I got the sun a few years later. It has a PH in the center and is the initials of my daughter’s last name.

Finally, the tree of life on my thigh. This is a family tattoo – my daughter and husband both have the same tattoo, but in different locations. Our daughter has wanted to be a research biologist since she was 4 and so we all came up with the tree with the double helix trunk.

megabyter

Geeks unite! She’s got binary all over her skates and nerdy stickers on her helmet. What’s not to love?!? Yesterday it was a non-tattooed Rocky skater. Today it’s a tattooed non-Rocky skater! Don’t worry, we’ll get back to the Rocky Mountain Tattoos Project very soon. But for today, I think you’ll enjoy these images of the lovely Megabyter…

verta break

We interrupt the Rocky Mountain Tattoos project to bring you the fabulous Verta Break. This lovely lady is a former Rocky Mountain skater who recently moved half way around the world (where, incidentally, she still plays roller derby, but with a much smaller team). Luckily for all of us, she flew back to Denver just for this shoot!* Enjoy…
