Buzzy, owner of
Starlight Tattoo now aged 40, grew up as a child in the tattoo industry with her
mum Monique and mum's partner Steve both being tattooists. Monique was the organiser of the Frankfurt International Tattoo Convention for many
years which gave them the opportunity to meet many great artists. Buzzy as a
youngster spent most of her free time drawing and learning from some of these
great tattoo artists that have stayed for visits. She also developed her own
style and feels that there is no end to how much you can learn, as tattooing is
always evolving with new trends and styles. She is very grateful to her mother
for teaching her the art of cover ups and repairs and to Steve for being her
technical mastermind behind the perfect setup of the tattoo machine. She remembers when she was 11
years old her mother giving her the tattoo machine for the first time and told
her to do a tattoo on a customer's chest. He didn't mind and everyone was happy
and laughing about it. It was an experience that Buzzy never forgot. Later when
she left school she started tattooing full time and has been tattooing ever since. First in Germany, and since 1998 in Auckland at Monique's Euro Tattoo and now at
So Buzzy says: Come on in, give us a visit and lets get
some creative tattoos happening.

This article was published when she was 17 years old. Among the things mentioned
in the article are that she was the youngest professional working tattooist in
Germany. And that she did her first tattoo when she was 11 years old.
