  • "Here's the side of this girl that blew me away right off the bat: She has to tattoo. If she doesn't tattoo, she gets her panties all in a wad, and the wrath of Von D isn't one you want to see. ... If I know this woman as well as I think I do, she'll be the first tattooer on the moon." -- Nikki Sixx
