Eva Phoenix has been tattooing for over thirty years, and Sea Hag Tattoo Parlour is the culmination of her vision for the perfect place to get a perfect tattoo. She is an artist who honors the traditions of tattoo while embracing the best new practices; more importantly, she honors the people who wear her art and ensures that everyone leaves happy.
She began tattooing in Houston, Texas in 1981 where emphasis was put on being adept in every aspect of the art of tattoo. From making needles to engraving stencils, Eva has lived the history of tattooing. She started drawing tattoos on people in her grandma’s bar when she was seven with permanent marker, tracing the road to her destiny. She traveled around the country working with many of the great artists in the industry picking up best practices along the way. She isn’t stuck in the past though; instead, she stays current by implementing the latest innovations where they are valuable while still retaining the classic methods where they work best.
30 years ago, there were few women that were tattoo artists, and fewer still who have lasted this long. Eva’s customers have traveled from other countries just to get the kind of work they want on their body from the kind of artist they like to let under their skin! What kind of artist is that? Eva is an artist who respects people’s time, ideas, and the permanence of tattoos. She’ll tell you what will and will not work, so that decades after you get the tattoo you can continue to be pleased with the art you wear.
If you’re the type that needs to be coddled, you may not want to come aboard The Sea Hag. You won’t get empty flattery from her, but you will get a good, solid, quality tattoo that will last a lifetime.
