This project was birthed from a place of self-love. And through the process, it slowly expanded and became a project focused on giving love to others. Now looking back, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
The project was completed on 16th Feb, 2023 at 7th Day Studio, Auckland, New Zealand.
Firstly, I'd like to give thanks to some amazing people who made this project possible.
To my wonderful clients: Indi, Brook and Courtney. Thank you a million for your trust and for letting me tattoo you. Your participation and personal stories have made this even more unique.
To Jo, thank you for introducing I Am Hope to me. I'm so glad we met and made this meaningful project happen.
To Christian, thank you for your unwavering support and for giving me your time and energy. Thank you for capturing the beautiful moments through your lens.
To my team at 7th Day Studio: Tri, Dom, Sara and Ray. Thank you for always being kind and generous.
For the project, I tattooed 3 clients with different designs from I AM collection.
It was such a great day filled with love. I'm forever grateful for the opportunities to give back through tattoos.
Read along to see the beautiful faces of the amazing souls I met and their experience.

Love and light,
When I saw the quote "I am enough" as an option I had tears in my eyes, this resonates with me so much and is such a beautiful project to be a part of - I'm so grateful!
Thanks again for including me in such a beautiful project!
You made the whole process so lovely for me, it was such a pleasure.
My sunflower is so beautiful and meaningful.
