Brittany Horner is no stranger to the dead. After graduating from Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service, Brittany got a job with a large funeral home and has since had time to intimately explore what she terms a "morbid curiosity with death." It is from this curiosity that the ideas for her tattoos were derived: a disembodied zombie geisha head, her batwing chest piece, pirates, flowers, spider webs, a whole scene based on The Phantom of the Opera, a shark prominently displaying its dinner—a hooker's leg—and, of course, all the blood that ties the pieces together as traditional symbols of life and death (mostly the latter) in the mythology of American tattooing.
