"My very first tattoo. The beginning of reinventing myself. The year I turned 30 was a tumultuous one, to say in the least, but also a great one. I always wanted a tattoo, but never knew what to get and was determined to get one my 30th year of life. I had seen a cool tattoo of the F-stop scale, which depicts the different aperture settings on a camera (the size of the opening through which light travels). Inspired, my partner and I designed a series of to-scale circles representing the F-stop scale of a 50-mm lens in full stops.
In addition, I now have a giant tree running down my right side, and three more tattoos booked. This canvas of mine, is a work in progress."
