Amber Kunselman loves all things bright and colorful.

She spends her days at The White Rabbit Café and Pâtisserie, whipping up whimsical and delicious treats inside the lime green shop, or working at her newest business venture, Rabbit Hole Records, which welcomes music lovers with its eclectic collection and bright orange walls.

Her cheerful personality shines through her tattoos, too, from the vibrant pinup girl on her back to the Mario Brothers and Zelda homage down her arm. “I like colorful, cartoony tattoos,” Kunselman says. “For me, they have meaning.”

The sleeve represents her childhood, a sentimental nod to years of playing video games with her dad. She decided to get the fun piece on The White Rabbit’s one-year anniversary as a gift to herself, meeting with her go-to tattoo artist, Josh Suchoza, every few weeks until it was complete.

“It’s the art that I enjoy. I like to get tattoos of things that I enjoy looking at and make me smile,” Kunselman says. “How can I not smile when I’m looking at Yoshi on my arm?”
