Age: 35/ 28

Title: Owners of Sea of Ink Tattoo Studio

Married/Single: Married

Kids: Four boys (18,11,7,4)

City you live in: Mesa, AZ (our studio is on Greenfield and Main)

A typical day in our life includes…

Sarah: typical morning routine coffee/tea, hugs kiss from the boys then off to work my 8-5 as an accountant for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in Scottsdale. After hours are spent at the shop, can’t work for a company for eight hours then go home and not work on your own goals!

Kevin: gather up 3 of the boys, take them to school, then off to the studio to open up. When not tattooing my time is spend honing up on drawing skills and preparing for the next tattoo artwork piece. Within the day the Studio keeps both of us busy with e-mails during breaks, calls, questions and the constant upkeep of learning to be more innovative in this industry.

We were born…

Sarah: Phoenix, AZ

Kevin: Hemet, CA

Our favorite thing about Arizona…

the multiple wonders it gives: snow, desert, red rocks, the weather. And that it is a growing state, continuously innovating, growing in opportunity, diversity…the list goes on.

We’re listening to…

three boys running around the house.

Our family…

is a team, our life.

If we could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Sarah: my father

Kevin: my wife.

One thing we cannot live without…

our family (children/spouse).

When I was younger, we wanted to be…

Sarah: Airforce pilot.

Kevin: on the SWAT team.

We’re inspired by

we inspire each other. Both us offer different views on life, the way we were raised, our background, and our education. Both of us bring different things to the table and we learn from each other, then we use what we know to work together as a team.

The one person who motivates me us…

motivation can’t be labeled to one person. It comes from our children, it comes from each other, it comes from the desire of success, to be the best we can be.

If we could change anything in the world, it would be…

more opportunity’s to learn outside of a room: learn to be open-minded, creative, and that not everyone is the same. The ability to learn and keep learning.

The perfect day would be…

*insert Miss Congeniality clip (2000)* With the family, doing some sort of outdoor activity.

Our first job was…

Sarah: Big Brother Big Sister donation center.

Kevin: nail salon.

Our favorite escape…

there is little time between four children and two jobs, so any spare time is done dancing the night away.

Our life…

is one of a kind and we hope that the journey of it (Sea of Ink Tattoo Studio) will be shared with others who might need inspiration and motivation.

We’re currently working on…

really working on getting the Sea of Ink Tattoo Studio name and artwork out to the public, and hopefully changing the way tattoo shops are portrayed along the way.

Always…

be kind, honest, and strong.

Never…

give up.

Favorite Quote…

Kevin:Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you.” – Dr. Seuss

Sarah: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
Biggest Dream…

to be able to live out our goals, to progress, and live a successful life. Show our children that determination is a good thing, that kindness is a good thing all while working hard to make each day livable/enjoyable to us and the people around us. The ability to travel the world with our children all while doing what we love, working as a team to promote excellent business tattooing ethics and art.

Pet Peeve(s)…

judgment. The Tattoo industry gets a lot of this, and this in itself is extremely challenging and it’s going to happen, the goal is not to let it consume you.
