I began tattooing in Rhode Island in 2001 and have been a full-time artist in several shops in the North Eastern United States (Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York). I’ve also done guest spots and conventions in the United States and Europe. In 2007, I opened my first shop, Twelve 28 Tattoo, in Brooklyn, NY. Twelve 28 closed in 2015 and I opened Trinity Tattoo Collective with my partners, Dorothy Lyczek and Chris Wednesday.
Nature and wildlife tattoos are preferred, both realistic and with a twist. Bring me your botanical illustrations and desires for nebulae; your fancy lettering and animal portraits! Traditional Americana and Japanese are not my thing, but if you’re looking for an ostrich wearing a tutu with some geometric linework and watercolory splotches, I’m your girl.
I often work with breast cancer survivors and previvors on post-mastectomy/breast reconstruction tattooing. I do both realistic nipples and areolae, as well as other imagery. Every year, I participate in P.INK Day and my shop has hosted the event for the last two years.
I tattoo by appointment only on weekends. My calendar is full at the moment, but please email me to be put on my waiting list for upcoming appointments. I also do commissioned and original artwork, if you’re interested.
Sometimes, I’m in the news. I have been featured in the NY Post, NY Times, MSNBC, Huff Post Live, and others. Here are a few links:
