This week’s artist interview is with Joie Sunshine of The VIP Room in Miami, Florida. Joie has only been tattooing for a short period of time but her work reminded me of the old “street” shop tattoos. We caught up with Joie Sunshine between appointments and trips to Disney.

How long have you been tattooing for?

I’ve been tattooing professionally for three years.

Have you always want to be a tattoo artist?

No, I didn’t always want to be a tattoo artist. It was something I just sort of fell into. As a child, I always loved to draw and color. Once I started school I always made sure to take an art class from elementary school all the way to college. I love going to museums and art galleries. I’m always looking for inspiration.

How old were you when you got your first tattoo?  

I was sixteen years old. Ugh ! It’s a tribal on my lower back. It was a birthday gift from the late Rob G. No funny or interesting story to accompany it lol. I have plans to cover it up once I start my back piece. Continue reading Joie Sunshine
