Jewellery Entrepreneur By Day, Bad-Girl Cartoon Character By Night. It’s A Hard Life...

That's some whacked out sleeves and backpiece you've got there - what's going on? A yearning to be six years old forever?

"Three maximum! I wanna live in never-never land where the trees are made of candy floss and lollipops grow out of the ground and everyone’s happy but I cant so I may as well just cover myself in it and be walking rainbow."

You're quite a face on the tattoo scene with your Purple Poison jewellery - how's business? Kicking ass and taking names? 

"Trying my best! Developing more new and original designs for ear jewellery at the moment and trying to find the time to work on new designs that are as different to anything else out there as I can get. I tend to research my ideas a lot to make sure there is nothing too similar already on the market – there's no point in simply reproducing somebody else’s ideas!"

How's your convention list shaping up for this year? Stacking them up behind you like you normally do? 

"Ink for Heroes is the next one and I’m really excited – it’s such a good cause! Tattoo Jam obviously and London. I'm looking to branch out further into Europe and smash it over there next year."

You change your hair colour so often - I lose track. Do you ever catch a glimpse of yourself in a shop window and wonder who that person is looking back at you?

"I strongly avoid any kind of glimpses in shop windows! I don’t have that sort of insurance!"
