This month’s ‘Interview a Creative’ focuses on my niece Ana Lara-Steely, who let me know that tattoo bling is a thing. I watched Ana grow up expressing herself and observing how creativity manifests through her. She is an amazing illustrator and she has inspired me to take a fresh look at my old ink.
Tattoos may be permanent, but using bling, bindi, glitter or other decor to dress them up is my suggestion for this week’s creative break. Don’t worry if you don’t have any tats; your foot, arm or leg is a blank canvas and full of potential.
Ana was born in Fort Collins, Colorado. She is pursuing a degree in chicano studies and devotes much of her time to her ferret Henry.
