1.What was (or is) your primary profession?
Primary? I guess that’d be the medical stuff, but I mean… There’s the other two, too. I moonlight at different bars and clubs as a bartender, and there’s the very part-time tattooing gig, too.
2.Where and how were you educated?
The clinic, I’m still in school for it. Started out with online classes of basic…crap, actually in school now. The bartending,- Y’know, I feel like this is about to get really repetitive. Classes. One’s a passion, one’s my ex-best friend’s mom’s fault (she was a bartender and the best parent ever. Showing me how to mix drinks when I was like twelve was A+), and the tattooing spawned from my love of art in general.

Teacher-y people. And Kat’s mom.

Basic student-teacher relationship minus the creepy, I guess.
