  • If you’ve been sick or have been in contact with someone who is sick STAY HOME! I will happily reschedule you.

  • All clients will be required to WEAR A MASK and wash their hands upon entering the shop. Please try to provide your own mask as PPE is in short supply. I will have a limited supply.

As always, I am committed to running a clean and safe tattoo studio and will continue to take extra precautions including wearing a mask and allowing for extra time for sanitation between clients. I will do my best in and outside of work to practice social distancing to maintain a safe environment for my clients. However, if you are high risk or uncomfortable with the situation I respect any decision to postpone a tattoo at this time and will happily honor deposits.

ABOUT ME

Two years into my undergraduate in pre-med at UW-Madison, I felt I needed to make a change. I had always been artistic, but the workload needed for my degree left little room for art classes.  I dove in head first at an opportunity to apprentice at Spike-O-Matic Tattoo as I saw  to continue my love of art outside of the classroom. I pushed myself to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology while also learning to tattoo.  After I graduated, I turned my focus entirely to my tattoo career and have been tattooing professionally since 2012.

 

To further my trade, I pursued training in medical tattoo applications and completed Medical Tattoo Masterclass at Finishing Touches, UK.  During this intensive training, I was able to learn and perform innovative new procedures to address the medical needs of patients with breast reconstruction, skin disorders, scarring and burns.  I found this new focus of my work challenging and very rewarding.  With this experience, I opened my own studio, Shade.  In this setting I work to provide areola pigmentation, scar camouflage and custom tattoos in a private, approachable space for all.
