Art. Aikin says she always knew she’d have a career in art, and both her mother and her grandmother were artists as well. But for her, art was always more intriguing when it was on someone’s body.
Finger paint. “There’s a picture of me as a kid with swirls of finger paint all over my body. My mind always just went to the body. To me, people are more interesting when they’re colorful,” said Aikin.
Style. According to the Washington Post, Aikin now works at Tattoo Paradise in Rockville. She specializes in Japanese styles and only does up to four tattoos per day. Because of this, she now has a three-month wait list.
