Is that a tattoo on your arm/hand? or What does your tattoo mean?
I have 4 tattoos… the ones most commonly asked about are the star on my hand and the three diamonds on my arm. The arm tattoo is of Harley Quinn‘s diamonds, which I got because she is one of my favorite comic book characters. The star on my right hand doesn’t mean anything – I just liked how it looked 😉

I sent you an email but haven’t heard back from you. Why?
Sometimes it takes me a few days to get to emails due to the amount I receive and my work schedule. I almost always write every person back that emails me. If its been a few weeks, it’s possible it some how ended up in my spam folder on accident. Feel free to shoot me an email and check! 🙂
