I am the Owner of a tattoo shop located in Newburgh, N.Y. and am also an Artist. I have been involved in several different mediums of Art my entire life. I majored in Art in H.S. and followed it up with an Associates Degree in Graphic Arts & Design. I worked as a Graphic Artist for 6 yrs. before discovering Screen Printing. I Apprenticed in a Screen Printing Shop for 2 yrs. before being hired by a printing company which I stayed with for 9 yrs. I got my first tattoo, back then it was legal, at the age of 16 and was hooked. I always had an interest in the craft. I picked up an apprenticeship in Boca Raton, F.L. several years ago and ran with it. 3 yrs. ago I decided to open my own Studio. Being a single mother of 4 and the only female Shop Owner in my area has proved to be challenging but I'm one tough cookie, I hold my own.
