“Every tattoo I have has a special meaning to them, each has a story behind them,” Reinelt said. “Most of them are Tim Burton inspired because he is my favourite director, and I feel his style represents my personality.”

Reinelt says that if she were to win the competition, the $25,000 would be put towards personal loans and to her children’s education.

“Being able to win a contest like this, in a way I would be able to hopefully inspire other women built like me to get out and do something that makes you happy,” she said.

Votes for Reinelt can be cast on her page on Inked Magazine’s website.

The final round of voting starts April 3 and ends April 9.
