Tattooing for me has been a goal of mine for nearly my entire life. Those who have tried to get into this business probably have found it’s not the easiest career to pursue. So with deep appreciation, I’d like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me along the way.
I have been an artist as long as I can remember, and what could be more rewarding to an artist than having his work forever etched into the skin of a client? I believe that my tattoos are a business card into the future. This is more than just a job for me, it’s my passion. So each and all of my pieces receive the same attention and detail as the next.
I prefer custom work the most. Collaborating with a client and turning their ideas into reality ensures each customer is getting a completely original piece of art. Black and gray, photo realism and detail are my strong points. But, I also enjoy the occasional color piece, too. I mostly work on an appointment only basis, so please call for my availabilities.
I have explored many paths to construct my journey; some smooth, others rocky. I have found at each intersect, myself creating and connecting. An artist in utero, I was able to unlock my creative potential upon getting out of my own way and immersing Beneath The Skin in 2016.
These passages in pain and perseverance are, if we see them clearly, gifts allowing a broadened perception of life, art, people, nature, the universe. Tattooing, for me, is an exploration in connectivity; an opportunity to mirror another’s journey, bring the vision to fruition, scar a scar, a triumph, a love. Above all, manifesting custom, autobiographical artwork. I have overwhelming gratitude to rock such a rad profession.
I enjoy and welcome the uncovering of all artistic styles, holding preference in art nouveau, cult classic portraiture, neo-trad, animals & abstract. Watercolor, stippling, traditional, black and gray, surrealist…I’m happy to attend to any challenge. When not tattooing, you’ll find me piercing, another avenue to release, create and empower.
Currently, I am embarking upon my newest venture: motherhood. I will be on maternity leave through the Autumn season of 2022. Books will be open 2023.
In the interim, follow me on Instagram and Facebook @5DLens for updates, archives, available flash, inspiration and general shenanigans.
I have always loved art and expressing myself through many mediums. Many people, myself included, enjoy expressing themselves through what they wear. Body piercings are a fantastic way to accessorize and adorn the body. When a shiny, badass accessory becomes a part of you, it’s exhilarating. Even moreso is changing the jewelry. As you build up your piercing collection, they all complement each other. I love helping clients decide what piercings to get, based on their interests and anatomy, to best complement their body.
I pierce kids' lobes too! Giving a child the opportunity to be brave and to prove to themselves that they are stronger than they think is a wonderful experience, both for me and the child! I also give out coloring books that teach them how to care for their new piercings!
I am appointment only; please text 833-257-4744 for availability!
As a child, I enjoyed all things art. Not much has changed. I am a fan of color, fantasy and all things imaginary. As an adult, I have continued drawing, doodling and coloring. Having had many jobs and titles in many different industries, I truly consider myself blessed to be exactly where I am today.
I've been drawing and creating as long as I could hold a pencil in my hands - for me, art has been a lifelong passion in which I've been able to express myself as well as heal through everything life has thrown my way. I've been to art school - starting off to be an art teacher, but after taking a course about the history of tattooing, I became fascinated by the medium. It wasn't too long after that I began investing my creative energy into all things tattooing.
Everyday is an honor to be able to create something for a client who enjoys body art just as much as I do and loves to express themselves. I enjoy color, black and grey, stippling, line work, semi realism, realism, American traditional - essentially, I like it all and I especially enjoy a challenge. I'm at the shop Tuesday through Sunday and have open flexibility when it comes to scheduling!
