Meet 35-year-old Maria Jose Cristerna also known as “Vampire Woman.”
She was an attorney who began tattooing her body after divorcing her abusive husband.
The name Vampire Woman started out as an insult but it has now opened doors for her.
“I am thankful for the nickname because, well, I overcame and can pass on my message. My transformation is, above everything, a consequence of loving tattoos and body modification,” she said.
