Born in San Francisco, I’ve called Portland, Or home since 2006. After quitting art school to become a gogo-dancer, I began teaching youth art classes and entered the nonprofit sector, concurrently getting my tattoo license in 2012. I ran an independent tattoo practice for 6 years, before joining Constellation Tattoo Collective in the summer of 2020, focusing on communities excluded from tattooing because of colonization, misogynoir, and ableism. A community educator, organizer and general rabble-rouser, I am always open to working collaboratively with liberation-minded folks!
