I got to photograph the amazing Betty here at the studio using the Hasselblad and 120 film.

Q. What made you decide to get a tattoo?

A. Well, My 80th Birthday was coming up, and George Bush Senior had just jumped out of an airplane to celebrate his 80th birthday.  My friends were pestering me to do the same, and I thought I’m not gonna do that!  My granddaughter had suggested I get a Tattoo instead.

Q. Why Betty Boop?

A. Well, we both share the same name, and same birth year!
