Show us your ink! MARKED is our new series where we ask locals of all ages, professions and backgrounds to roll up their sleeves, pant legs, and so much more to reveal their marks. Here are their stories:
Name: Christina Felix
Age: Currently 23 and I got this tattoo less than a year ago.
I had the tattoo done with my mother. It's by Tony Olvera at Lady Luck Tattoo Gallery. My mother is the most amazing person to me -- she has gone through many hardships and through them I have learned a lot from her.
We decided after a girls trip from Las Vegas to get a matching tattoo that represents us and our freedom as women and to always remember who we are no matter what is thrown at us.
I got this tattoo on the inner part of my arm because I wanted to make sure I could always see it!
Next Tattoo? I have many in mind, eventually I am getting a portrait of my mom on my arm ( she doesn't know it yet).
