"All of my tattoos have very personal meanings behind them. A lot of my work is music related because before I had children, music was my passion. I also have memorial tattoos on my wrists for a friend who attempted suicide and another that passed of cancer on his 21st birthday. Choosing just one as a favorite is a challenge, but I will go with my knuckles — they spell out 'dark side,' which is a reference to Star Wars and my religion (or lack thereof). I am planning out tattoos for all three of my children because I look at tattoos as a road map of my life, where I have been, where I am going and where I am now. People say that being a parent (especially of a Down's Syndrome child) takes commitment. I just say look at me, I clearly have no commitment issues!"
