Lauren; 21. I’m a loser from Sheffield currently living and studying in Birmingham.
I can’t function properly on less than two cups of tea, two sugars. I have an eternal love for black eyeliner, long eyelashes and the 1940’s & 50’s.
I seem to have started collecting cardigans, nail varnish, tattoo magazines and notebooks; I never know what to put in them.
I’m also pretty certain that me and my friends are low level alcoholics.
I live with nine girls, but I’m hardly a girly girl – however I still appreciate a cute dress and a pair of heels.
Horror is my film genre of choice; Tim Burton, Vincent Price and Robert Englund are my heroes.
Music is the love of my life; Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria, Young Guns, Bury Tomorrow, Hands Like Houses, Woe, Is Me, Bring Me The Horizon, Crown The Empire, ISSUES…the list goes on, and has a few very odd extras thrown in for good measure.
I’ve essentially got the mental age and concentration skills of a five year old, which is probably why I draw.
I plan on either being a tattoo artist or a freelance illustrator.
You can find my illustrations/scribbles at www.teaandinkillustration.tumblr.com
And the perfect end to tomorrow would be snuggle up in bed in my comfy clothes, with my fix of Criminal Minds, several cups of tea and some yummy Chinese takeaway (or takeaway sushi, depending how much money I fancy spending). Oh and someone to cuddle.
