Amanda’s mother was a mermaid and her father was a three headed dragon. One of the heads was a wolf and another a hyena. Amanda travelled around in her own freak show for years, consisting of her talented acrobatic cat named Chicken and her dog/lion/bear who can eat on command. They weren’t very successful…  Amanda decided to grow roots through her oddly scaled feet in Vermont, where she has lived on and off since 2011. Amanda has since added 2 dogs, 16 chickens (not to be confused with the cat), 17 guinea hens and 1 goat to the freak show. Unfortunately, none know tricks.  Amanda has been an artist her entire life. She is obsessed with making things beautiful. Tattoos have helped her feel beautiful and reclaim her body. Amanda wants to help others feel beautiful and bring inner strength to the surface for the world to see. Esme Hall took Amanda on as an apprentice in February 2019. Amanda is not only eternally grateful, but also so excited to grow, learn, and hone her skills under Esme’s wings.    INSTAGRAM  @marrow.moth.tattoo
