I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and have always had a love of art. These passions lead me to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where I fell in love with this great city. After graduating I was a fabric/textile designer in the clothing industry, but I felt I could do more with my art. I started tattooing a few years ago and have incorporated my love of textiles and fine art into many of the pieces I do. I find tattooing extremely rewarding and challenging. Whether it is turning someone’s faded or old tattoo into something they can be proud of through a cover-up, or helping them to memorialize someone or something special in their life. Pride is taken in each piece I do, no matter how large or small. I have a wide range of styles but Neo-traditional, Mendhi/Henna and Dia De Los Muertos themes are my favorites. Thanks for looking:)
