Violet A. Saultz is one of the most genuinely GOOD people you’ll ever meet (unless she’s hitting you on the track, I suppose). She also makes for a lovely photography subject. Enjoy!
About Saultz’ Tattoos
First tattoo: Pig Face flower on my hip. Done at Sleevemasters in Sydney, Australia. This is one of the flowers I planted while doing Bushland regeneration volunteer work in Australia.
Second tattoo: Moon and Stars on my back. Done by Pat at Revolver Ink (Immortal Ink when I got inked) in New Brunswick, NJ. My sisters and I all have the same tattoo; the stars are the colors of our birthstones.
Third tattoo: “the journey is the destination” across my feet. Done by Kristy at Bound by Design on Colfax, Denver, CO. Just the mantra I try to live by every day.
Fourth tattoo: Barn Owl on my shoulder. Done by Adam at Fallen Owl Tattoo Studio in Lakewood, CO. This was for a charity event for Nature’s Educators, and since I volunteer rehabilitating injured raptors, I participated.
Fifth tattoo: Violets on my ankle. Done at Downtown Tattoo in New Orleans, LA. I got violets, my derby namesake, to decorate the sweet scar I have on my ankle from a derby break.
Sixth tattoo: Shamrock on my ribs. Done by Wolfman Frank at End of Days Tattoo on Colfax, Denver, CO. It was Friday the 13th. And i’m Irish. So that happened.
Seventh tattoo: Sugar Skull Derby Girl on my thigh. Done by Jason at Phantom 8 in Englewood, CO. The Sugar Kill Gang decided we’d immortalize our awesomeness with team tattoos. Jason not only designed and inked a beautiful tattoo, but he put up with practically a whole derby team in his studio for a whole day.
This lovely jammer joined Rocky Mountain fairly recently and has rapidly climbed up the ranks, making her debut with our top team at the recent WFTDA playoff tournament in Tucson.
Check out the NSFW page 2 for more photos of Coyote (including a better look at the awesome tattoo of herself on her left arm!)
This former Rocky skater was nice enough to make the trip down from Wyoming to be a part of my little project (admittedly about 3 years after we had first discussed doing a shoot). I’m sure you’ll agree it was worth the wait.
Here’s hoping we can strike “former” from that first sentence someday soon!
About Cass’ Tattoos
I got the majority of my tattoos from Andy Westman with Black Sunday tattoo in Casper, Wyoming. The tattoos that he didn’t do will be getting covered up by him eventually. I have twelve tattoos and hope to have more than that down the road.
Fabulous burlesque performer Gazella Galore was good enough to come shoot with me a second time back in November. I’m LONG overdue in posting these. Enjoy!
