We've got another awesome interview with, a new artist from Tattoo Zoo, Angie DiFran. While how she came to be a tattooer remains a mystery (unless you visit her at the shop and get a tattoo), Angie's signature style is very bold and traditional. When she isn't working with us on our Tattoo Zoo collection, she's watching The Flash and enjoying coffee.
