Tattoos are becoming more popular than ever. A recent study says that 1 out of every 5 adults has at least one tattoo and at least 40 percent of people among the ages of 18 to 29 have one.
A tattoo site called, Get Better Life, recently picked the 5 best female tattoo artists in the U.S. and a woman from Omaha made the list.

After she mastered that, she was able to do a few small tattoos. 15 years later, she has won several awards for her work and has even been featured in tattoo magazines.
