Storytelling and magic through art and tattoos

Tina loves telling stories on skin that bring magic into her client’s lives. She loves finding elements that serve her clients best at this time of their lives and building these elements into the story of their tattoos. Fine line blackwork tattoos with soft line shading and stippling that incorporate magic into the natural and supernatural world. Hands, eyes, plants, insects, fungi, animals, and creatures of a far away enchanted forest.

You can request an appointment for her available flash designs which she prefers or request a limited number of custom tattoo design appointments with her most months. Follow her on Instagram for news and updates.

Are you ready?

I'd love to tattoo one of my available designs, or create a custom design that I tattoo just for you.

Tina's common questions

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
Yes, I require a non-refundable deposit to hold your tattoo appointment date. If the tattoo needs multiple sessions, the deposit is applied to your last appointment session. If the tattoo is finished in one session the deposit is applied to the finished tattoo that day.

If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason, give me at least 2 days/48 hours notice and we can reschedule you for another day. Trying to reschedule under 2 days or 48 hours will result in the loss of your deposit, and will cancel your appointment.

The deposit will be void for cancellations at any time, no-shows, or later arrivals after 30 minutes. If you no-show for a scheduled consultation you will be not be able to schedule with me in the future.
WHEN CAN I SEE THE DRAWING FOR MY TATTOO?
On the day of your tattoo appointment we will review the custom tattoo design drawing together, in person, and make any minor changes needed before starting the tattoo. I do not provide the design before our appointment time.

Significant changes that were not discussed during the consultation could result in the loss of your deposit.

My available flash designs are tattooed as is, unless we have discussed changes before I accepted the appointment request. Minor changes can be made on the day of, but I would prefer if you let me know ahead of time so I can be prepared.
DO YOU DO VEGAN TATTOOS?
Yes, I use the following inks; Dynamic Color, or Solid Ink for black, Empire Inks for graywash, and Eternal Ink for red.

These companies have confirmed their inks are vegan and the glycerin used is plant based.

All other solutions, creams, and ointments that I use during my process are also vegan; witch hazel, distilled water, Dr. Bronner's pure-castile liquid soap, Stencil Stuff, VitaliTree Redux Gel or Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter.
CAN YOU TATTOO OVER SCARS?
In most cases, yes. I like my clients to wait until their scars are 2-5 years old, as some scar tissue can continue changing for several years after the initial injury. You can always contact me to discuss your specific situation.

I understand how powerful and transformative it can be to change the relationship with a part of your body that has a memory of trauma. I am honored to be able to take you through this step of the process using the art and magic of tattooing.
