Inked for Friday, September 16, 2011

Name: Lori Ryan

Hometown: Friendsville, Pa.

‘After my first trip out there for vacation — and after seeing sea turtles for the very first time — I came back and had my local artist, Chip Beam of Artifex Tattoos in Vestal, N.Y., ink a small, tasteful sea turtle on the outside of my ankle. Since my first trip there in 2000, I have had the same artist continue to fill up what I call my ‘Kauai leg.’ I have a large coconut palm on the back of my calf, a Hawaiian centipede crawling up my shin and a Hawaiian rooster set on the inside of my ankle.
