Me and My Tattoo: Natasha Church
Natasha Church, 31, Welling
Why this design?
My mum used to collect giraffes, and when she passed away a year ago I wanted to get one tattooed in memory of her.
I've been adding to the giraffe and it’s now turned into a full sleeve!
The giraffe has my mum's initial in its crown.
How much did it cost?
Did it hurt?
That part didn't hurt, but some of the others did.
It felt exciting though, and inspires me to have more.
What did your friends say?
Some say I'm mad, some say it's amazing.
I get stopped in the street all the time by people asking where I got it done.
Have you got any more?
I have paint splatters on my back and ribs which was also done by Ollie (Pinder).
I have a scorpion on my foot and a diamond on the back of my neck.
I also have a full sleeve on this arm which includes the giraffe.
*Natasha’s tattoo was done by Ollie Pinder at Demon Inkorporation in Bellegrove Road, Welling
