Susie Timm's Anchor and Cherry Blossoms

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: Susie Timm
Age: Currently 32, and I was 31 when I got my first six tattoos.

My Back Pieces: All of them have different meanings to me. I was a banker in corporate America for 10 years and literally 30 days after leaving I decided my inner ink rebel was going to be unleashed.

The anchor is because I love all things nautical, respect the United States Navy and view Christ as my life anchor.

The cherry blossom is because as a child I loved all things cherry related and on my wedding invitation, I had a silver cherry blossom as a symbol of the love between my husband and I.

Next Tattoo? I would like several more tattoos. I am going to get some retro slot-machine cherries next, most likely on my hip. Also plan to get some vegetables tattooed directly across from the cherry blossom, possibly in a cornucopia, representing my love of food and cooking.

Know of any interesting marks? Send us your photos/submissions.
