A couple months ago, I ran into Otep Shamaya at a juice bar in L.A. I took that opportunity to chat with her and see if she’d like to do an interview for Tattoo.com. She agreed. A few weeks later, I was sitting next to her on a couch in her dressing room at the Whisky A Go Go asking her questions about her life, her music, and her tattoos.
Watch our interview to learn more about this fascinating, powerful woman who’s been sending shock waves through metal scene since the early 00’s.
