Hi Linette, how do you feel looking at yourself on the Tattoo Life Official Calendar featured in the month of March in 2020?
It feels so surreal. I feel pretty special, and excited to have had this opportunity.

This calendar represents so many beautiful, talented ladies that show commitment to the art of tattooing.

Who choose the final outfit – nude look, high heels, fur coat and a very fashionable handbag? You or Christian Saint?
I chose the final outfit, but Christian Saint picked this great picture. He is an artist, and he chose the perfect image to represent March.

I know you love flowers and tattooed flowers in a very special way so March, the month dedicated to the beginning of the spring, was the only option available, wasn’t it?
It really is! It’s the perfect month to showcase my love of flowers. It’s the beginning of spring, and everyone is super happy.

Who doesn’t love seeing the flowers bloom after a long cold winter?

Describe me that flower tattoo on your ankle.
To be honest I forgot about that tattoo. It was a cover up, and it’s covering my very first tattoo. My very first tattoo wasn’t the best (it was a nautical star), so I decided to cover it up.

Why did you choose a 1 Corinthians 13;6 biblical quote tattooed on your back?
I chose it because I’m a sucker for love. I’m not religious at all, but I liked the meaning behind it.

Have you met and been worked on by other tattoo artists apart from yourfavourites (Chris Hebert, Andy Robinson, Mike Decay, Patrick MacDonald)?
I haven’t met any new artists. I like to stick with artists I’ve created a friendship with. I have visited Patrick Macdonald more than a couple of time this past year. I can’t get enough of his beautifully tattooed roses.

I don’t want to add another artist to my friendship list. Not sure everyone can handle my talkative side.

Last question: your major goal for 2020?
Holy cannoli that is a hard question to answer! I would love to be a part of this amazing magazine again. I have to speak it into existence! (Terminator voice) I’ll be back! (giggles)
