PHOTO Danielle Colby’s ‘Pretty In Ink’ magazine cover

American Pickers Danielle Colby Cushman Pretty In Ink magazine cover

It’s been a little while since we’ve provided an update on our favorite burlesque dancing, roller derbying, tattoo-loving enterpreneur and reality starlet Danielle Colby Cushman! The Antique Archaeology office manager from History Channel’s hugely popular America Pickers has apparently been a bit off the radar thanks to her acquisition of a second home in Logan Square, just outside of Chicago.

But, her move and splitting time between the LeCalire, Iowa and Nashville, Tennesse locations of Antique Archaeology didn’t stop Danielle from taking time out for an interview and photo shoot with Pretty In Ink magazine!

Danielle graces the cover seemingly topless and wearing only her colorful tattoos and a collection of unique jewelry. The article is titled “American Pickers Star, Performer, Business Owner, Wife and Mother Danielle Colby” with an interview conducted by Nikki Forte and Kat Kartel. The issue is currently available in print and via digital download here! (Click the link to preview the first nine pages.)

Also featured in the issue is Pretty In Ink founder Kat Kartel, Editor/Designer Nikki Forte, and models Brix Nobody, Violet Eyes, Jenny Lynn, Dani MacDonald, Nicole Brown, Jenni Fury, Leanne James, Lizifer, Vanessa Michelle Filth, Drea Rose DeVille, Elise Jordan, Vanny Vicious, and Katty Deluxe.

And in case you wanted to know a little bit more about Danielle’s personal life, here’s her most recent update from Facebook:

Gaaahhhh!!! So much fun stuff happening. Sorry for the absence as of late, have been focusing on my move and spending tons of time with the kids! Spent the day at the Lincoln Park Zoo yesterday for the kids homeschooling class. Thanks Mike for letting me tailor my schedule a bit ; ) It’s great to work for someone who understands the importance of family and sanity. I am a lucky, lucky gal! LOVING having a place back in Chicago! It’s great to be able to split my time between LeClaire and Nashville more and more. I will post a few pics of my new 2nd home in Logan Square, Chicago, if you all like. It’s humble but very charming, just like my LeClaire home (which I still spend half my time at). Keep it simple, right?!
