Denise de la Cerda lives off the grid out of choice.
I visited her during my research trip writing Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in Modern America.
Denise still has her tattoo business in Manhattan, but as soon as she can she leaves town and heads for her Connecticut woodland.
She bought it 3 years ago for about $70,000, owner-financed. Since then she has built a small house and a tiny cabin on stilts.
Denise is a a tattoo artist in the true sense. She won’t do cutesy designs you saw in a celebrity magazine. Tattoos are permanent and she will want to know why you want the tattoo so she can design the best possible tattoo
