I was born and raised in South Mpls and moved to Providence, RI when I was 18. Learned how to tattoo in Providence, moved back to Mpls. Now happy to work at the Sea Wolf doing tattoos that have solid lines and bold colors. I like tattooing anything I have the opportunity to draw for and hand drawn lettering.

Snake and Skull Tattoo

Tough to go wrong with a classic! I made this snake and skull tattoo loosely based on an old Ralph Johnson design for Sarah. Traditional designs like this seem to bring out very strong opinions in one direction or another on “meaning” in tattoos. Those wi…


Black and Grey Girl Tattoo

I tattooed this black and grey girl tattoo on Andrew this fall–it was so cool to tattoo an art teacher! Growing up, art was always my favorite subject, I remember so many of my art teachers so fondly and still refer back to things I learned from high sch…


Nobody’s Darling Tattoo

I made this heart and dagger tattoo for David this fall, we have been working on his arm for a while and are starting to fill in some of the smaller spaces–it seems like almost everyone ends up with a good, dagger-shaped space! Thanks so much for trustin…

Panther Tattoo

This fall I got to work on a fun project with my new friend Selena–we did a panther tattoo and a tiger tattoo on her chest in two sessions! Selena has definitely spent her fair share of time in tattoo shops, it was awesome to add to her collection and he…


Lady Trieu Tattoo

I made this Lady Trieu tattoo for Karla a little while ago, in honor of her daughter. One of the coolest parts of tattooing is you learn so much about so many different things–I didn’t know anything about this story from Vietnam until Karla asked me to w…


Red Riding Hood Tattoo

This was a super fun spin on a classic wolf tattoo, incorporating a tiny little red riding hood right into the mouth of the wolf. I love interpreting folklore and stories into images representing them and I love tattooing animal heads! Thanks so much Kate…


Peony Tattoo

Peonies traditionally represent wealth, honor, romance and love, and are considered a good omen. In Greek mythology there is a myth in which the Goddess of the moon, Selene, creates the peony to reflect the light of the moon at night. During the Middle Ag…


Snake and Scissors Tattoo

I had a really awesome time working on this tattoo for Kenzie, even though the situation for the snake makes me nervous! I love the combination of organic and man-made objects in tattoos, the organic part of the tattoo helps the tattoo fit and flow well w…
