Tattoo therapy: U on Sunday interview with Drea & Aria


The U on Sunday lift out from the Sunday Mail BrisbaneĀ ran this interview over the weekend of how me and best mate Aria met through a tattoo to cover her scars, and how we have since formed a years long friendship.

It’s a pretty cool story that will give you the warm and fuzzies at the end so I am pretty glad we were able to tell it. Many thanks to Kitty from the Australian Tattoo Expo and U on Sunday for this opportunity.

Our story also highlights how import it is to lift each others up when they are down. I honestly didn’t feel I was doing anything terribly profound at the time but as I have found out years later I have come to understand that my kind and encouraging words and gestures from myself were literally life changing for Aria. There is only so much room in a news article however, it does not even go into all the wonderful things and emotional support that Aria has given to me in turn. She’s always there to give me a laugh or lend a hand when life gets tough. And all this started from a tattoo! How cool.

Aria is a comedy podcaster from the Channel ‘Aint it Rich’ which she co hosts with her mate Mickey Flykick. Each week they tell a story about the lives of the ridiculously wealthy. I regularly drive 1.5 hours to another city and this podcast makes the drive entertaining and fun. Plus I feels like Aria is there hanging out in the car with me! Haha.
