Jessica Gahring, from NY Ink, at Sage

jessica gahringCould be interesting: tattoo artist Jessica Gahring -- a resident of Troy who appears on the TLC reality show NY Ink -- will be at Sage Thursday for a talk titled "Talking Back, Speaking Out and Being Humble & Making It Big." (Kind of sounds like a lecture on humblebragging.)

Gahring, a 2004 Russell Sage College grad, told the Troy Record earlier this year that she heard about the show via a former Sage classmate in NYC, and got cast after an interview.

Here's her Facebook page -- she lists Wynantskill as her home. And here's her Twitter stream.

Gahring's talk starts at 7 pm in the Schacht Fine Arts Center on the Sage Troy campus. Tickets for the general public are $10, and will be available at the door.

She's the store manager, not one of the artists. I don't know if she is a tatoo artist outside of the show.

I guess the idea of "Making it Big" has changed a bit.
