Tattoo Profile: Charis Franco


Who: Charis Franco (senior, dance)

What: A quote tattoo which reads, “We lived in the attic.” The quote is an excerpt taken from the book “Flowers in the Attic,” by V.C. Andrews.

Why: “‘Flowers in the Attic’ is one of my favorite books of all time,” Franco said. “It’s just written so beautifully and is able to connect all the stories it tells into one novel.”

Where: Big Mojo Tattoo and Body Piercing Studio, 112 S. 7th St., Indiana

Pain level: The tattoo stung, but wasn’t that painful on her ribs.

Other tattoos: Franco plans to get more tattoos in the future, including a flower and a portrait of Eddie the Head, the mascot for the band Iron Maiden.
