“Kristina Wright joined the Army in 1998 and quickly climbed the ranks as one of the only female mechanics.”  Wright retired in 2008 after a string of injuries and, like many veterans, didn’t quite know what to do with her life.  After taking an apprenticeship at a tattoo parlor, Wright has since been able to grow her business significantly over 8 years. “Wright’s Tattoo Parlor has grown to become one of the largest in Colorado Springs, employing enough people for 8 individual shops.”
