A big welcome to my friend Lucretia as the newest official member of the Tattooed Moms Club! I met her through my husband about 7 years ago when she and her husband came into the shop he was working at to get tattooed. She’s a HUGE lover of kids and has a heart of gold. Read on to learn more about her!
Where are you from?
Born and raised in NC, corn field town. I left at 16 and took on the world and made Cleveland my home for 13 years now.
Tell us about your kids?
Oh my kiddos.. I have 4 biological ones. 3 boys, one girl. They are my entire world. Don’t tell my daughter , but she is the instigator lol.
How do your kids feel about your tattoos?
My oldest is 12, youngest 7. Let’s put it this way. My daughter already has her first 2 picked for when she is older, and asked for a party dot at the last party we had. Lol. Not yet kiddo. My boys have plans for the military and have discussed how to hide them to join the army. 😉
What about your kids’ friends?
I’m the neighborhood mom. Everyone loves me and my ink.
What is your parenting style?
I go with the flow. If my children don’t listen they lose their precious video games and barbies. Respect others and if they disrespect you, well we deal with it. I’m raising warriors .
What is the biggest lesson parenting has taught you?
Don’t give up.
Have you ever faced any discrimination due to being a tattooed mom? What happened?
Of course. I just moved back from Florida where everyone was elderly. LMAO. You should have seen the looks in the grocery store. They don’t know I’ve got a heart of gold and would give anyone my last dollar.
Tell us about your tattoos. Who did them and do you have a favorite one?
I have so many. Most of them are ocean themes and Irish stuff. I’ve gotten them from all over the country.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was 13. A homemade tattoo that said sparkle, because my eyes always sparkled when I cried.
What is your favorite hobby?
Singing and pretending I’m a detective digging up info on people.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box, what would the name of your color be and how would you describe it?
Aqua Live – it would be a bright blue green color.
