Whatever Rush Limbaugh would have America believe, glass ceilings still exist — especially in male-dominated fields. Luckily, Miami has Katherine Flores, AKA Tatu Baby, repping woman­kind and hometown pride on Spike TV's hit reality show Ink Masters.
As one of just three female contestants this season, Flores faces "extreme circumstances" and made-for-TV challenges in her fight to take the Ink Master title. Born in New York and raised in Miami, Flores has been penning permanent works of art since the tender age of 14. And while being an attractive female has its advantages, in her early career it made navigating the male-dominated tattoo scene a little more challenging.

Specializing in black-and-gray tattoos and Day of the Dead-style skulls, she does work that ranges from celebrity portraiture (Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor) to intricate skeletons. Battling brothers Robbie and Jayvo reluctantly work together to decide on a piece for their canvas while LT already lets the other artists get into his head.
We won't know the show's outcome till December 18, but Flores has already stuck it out through several rounds of cuts, taking on tasks such as inking mouth tattoos, freehanding Americana creations, and conceiving Star Wars-inspired pieces.
She went pro at 19, and through a dynamic combination of attractiveness and artistic talent, she's been steadily making her mark. She's inked everything from words on Lil Wayne's stomach to a Pinocchio likeness on a man's lower half.

She says she draws inspiration from fellow artists, taking concepts and turning them into her own. Though famous inked-up chicks like Kat Von D have helped make strides for female artists, there's still a hefty overabundance of dudes doing tattoos. With long, wavy locks, a sultry pout, and tattoos from collarbone to upper thighs, she possesses a special brand of pin-up-style sex appeal.
