430 | So You Want to be a Professional Creative? with Lorin Devine

430 | So You Want to be a Professional Creative? with Lorin Devine

In this episode, Eric is joined by Lorin Devine, who grew up in the cornfields of rural Illinois and has been driven to create, explore, and forge her own way.  In adulthood, she struggled to find footing in a world where she felt like she never quite fit. 

In 2014, Lorin entered the world of tattooing.  Then, after 4 years in a busy walk-in studio, she left Illinois to spend 18 months on the road as a guest in more than 25 tattoo studios throughout the U.S. and Europe.  Halting travel in 2020 led to an ADHD diagnosis, and a framework to understand years of straining to conform to a neurotypical world.

Lorin is now based out in Portland, Oregon, where she is creating illustrative black and gray tattoos in a private studio.  Finding support in the ADHD community and the autonomy to curate her tattoo practice towards supporting a neurodivergent brain has empowered her to create the best possible work for her clients.

In this episode, you’ll hear discussions about being categorized as a gifted child, the impact of creating a working environment that works for us, and the importance of community.

Then, you’ll get to listen in on real-time coaching where you’ll hear about tips & tricks to go from time-blind to time-wise.
