The INDIEgator: Share with us the vision of your future. Do you plan to open any restaurants or do you prefer the freedom of Catering only?

TTC: Both. I definitely would love to have my own Restaurant or Catering business as well as some Tattoo Shops. I want an “extravagant” fine dining African restaurant.

The INDIEgator: Speaking of Tattoo Shops, you did not let your original goal or education go to waste either. Let’s talk about your other creative side. When did you get your first tattoo and which is your favorite one?

TTC: I started tattooing in December 2009 and have thirteen myself. My favorite… is all of them, lol.

The INDIEgator: What made you decide to become a Tattoo Artist?

TTC: I only have three tatts that were done by someone else, one of which came out looking like a prison tatt. So after that, I made up my mind that I could do better, ordered my 1st kit and started practicing on myself.

The INDIEgator: What is your BEST memory related to either your Chef or Tattoo work so far?

TTC: Every moment cooking is the best for me. However, the one that stands out the most is when I was at the shelter in 2012 and was asked to prepare two desserts for over 300 people for the Christmas Dinner. To see all of those Residents, Staff and Guests asking (and some even begging) to get second and third servings of what I had made….it was truly Intoxicating.

The INDIEgator: While serving in the U.S. Military, did you learn anything particular about yourself as related to your current Artistic endeavors? 

TTC: Honestly, I had no idea that I would be doing any of this. I am an Artist from birth, I’ve always been able to draw/paint but my career in the Military was about jumping out of helicopters, working in different languages and Military Intelligence. I would also like to take this time to thank Everyone who believed in me, even when what I was doing seemed crazy. Without your support and encouragement I would be lost and still trying to find my way and where I belonged in the world.

The INDIEgator: How can people around the world best get ahold of you and learn more about Chana, The Tattooed Chef?

TTC: I can be reached on Facebook via my fan page at, You can follow me on both Instagram and Twitter at @AKA_ChefChana. I can also be reached by phone on my cell at 832.373.5255 or via Email.

Well Chana, Congratulations on choosing to follow your heart’s TRUE desires! So many people unfortunately settle for jobs they can’t stand instead of taking the leap to a Career they can love. Thank you for serving our Country and sharing your amazing Culinary and Inked masterpieces with us.
