Stefanie Flores - Ink Stuntin'
Stefanie Flores, 28, was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Today she resides on the west coast, where she is a Hollywood stunt performer. Having four tattoos before she graduated high school, Flores pondered the idea of becoming a tattoo artist. However, at the age of 25, she met stunt coordinator Peter Bucossi -- known for his work on "The Sopranos" -- who gave her a shot on the TV show "White Collar."

Since her fateful meeting with Bucossi, Flores has stunt-doubled for many actresses, such as Blake Lively, Kristen Schaal, Eve Best, Alexandra Daddario, and Michelle Dockery -- who she doubled for on stunts for Liam Neeson's blockbuster thriller, Non-Stop.

Flores says that teenage rebellion led to her first tattoo on her right arm, which she got at the age of14 on St. Mark's Place on the Lower East Side in New York City. Since then, Flores has acquired quite a collection -- thirteen tattoos in all -- consisting of roses, lettering, symbols, and portraits displaying images of characters she's fond of and people whom she holds dear and near to her heart.

Her penchant for extreme sports and stunts inspires her love for her career. Her father -- a former corrections officer and military man who was covered in tattoos and whose face is also tattooed on her arm -- along with growing up in the art- infused city of New York inspired the tattoo art that Flores has gotten etched all over her body.
