At the age of 23, Guerin has already established an extremely successful business and, on top of that, she enjoys what she does. "It feels wild, and I think I'm really lucky." When asked what sparks her passion for tattooing, Guerin cites the interpersonal connections involved with her work and the ability to make many new acquaintances daily, leading to both new friends and new business opportunities. "Plus, I get to leave forever-marks on my buddies," she adds. "That being said, it's not without its stressors, but it's worth it."
