House Tattoos

Sherri DuPree-Bemis


In May 2011, Sherri DuPree-Bemis had her own drawing of Texas turned into a tattoo by Alice Kendall at Infinity Tattoo in Portland, OR. There is a moon smiling over a house which is a reference to the Eisley lyrics “mr. moon shines down on my home” from the song “Mr. Moon.” The tattoo expresses her love for her home state–the DuPree family lives in Tyler, TX and Sherri now owns a house there with her husband Max Bemis. The drawing is quite intricate and includes a rabbit, deer, butterflies, raspberry, strawberries, pine cone, pine trees and flowers. (more…)

Skylar Grey

Skylar Gray has a large tattoo covering her whole back of a cabin in the woods during a storm. The tattoo represents a period in her life where she lived in the woods in Oregon before re-inventing herself. She explains: “I moved into a cabin in the woods and I was broke and I was down on my luck and depressed. It was there that I proved to myself that I could survive anything. And when I came out of the woods I wrote ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and that changed my life forever. So that tattoo represents that whole dream to me.”

On the back of her neck is her very first tattoo which is a pair of fish and the Pisces symbol.
