She’s hopeful that people will be able to see her as a musical artist and not just a tattoo artist.

“Now that I’m doing it more serious, I gotta get other people to take me more serious in that lane,” she said. “People are so used to seeing me as a tattoo artist, they don’t want to see you as anything else. What people gotta realize, think of y’all mamas. Y’all mamas had a real job. That lady came home, was a muthaf–kin’ chef. Probably did odd jobs for people in the community whether it be doing hair, sewing stuff, cleaning up. Our demographic of people is just that creative that we can do so many other things. Don’t put nobody in a box.”
