My tattoo portfolio visually explains my specialties a bit better than a few keywords do, but I wanted to share some favorite styles, themes, & subject matter so we can find some common interests. We can play with any of these styles or a combination!
ILLUSTRATIVE REALISM : forms & subjects rendered believably while utilizing outline to make the image pop. EXPRESSIVE : watercolor, brushstrokes, paint splatters, sketchy lines, calligraphy, scribbles.. INTRICATE : tiny patterns, sacred geometry, ornate lace, filigree, henna/mehndi.. CMYKANDY: Cyan, Magenta, & Yellow + heavy blacK are the primary colors that create my rainbow color schemes.
These are a few of my Favorite Things... Mystickal beings, Voidolls, Goddesses, Mythical Creatures, Wings, Archetypes, Tarot, Divination, Crystals, Sacred Geometry, Lace, Magick Charms, Magical Girl devices, Manga, Sailor Moon, anything Moon, Cosmic/Space/Galaxy, Holographic/Iridescence, Power Rangers, 1990s, Lisa Frank, Desserts, colorful or interesting Flowers, Psychedelic or Triiipy thangs.
I do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18 years old. Even with the proper paperwork and a parent/guardian sign-off, I'm sorry, I do not tattoo minors.
It is nothing personal. In my experience, this decision is best for everyone.
If you have seen my portfolio, read through this entire page, know the tattoo inbox is open, and truly believe I may be the right artist for your next tattoo-- Please send me an email!** Here is what to include in your email:
SUBJECT: (No requirements! But if you want a suggestion... Do any of the keywords in the WHAT section describe your tattoo idea?)
MESSAGE: 1) WHO: Your first & last name. 2) WHEN: Your availability between Tuesday - Saturday on a typical week. 3) WHERE: Body placement & size estimate of design. 4) WHAT: Short description of the essential elements and style you envision for the tattoo. 5) WHY: Keep it simple, but just give me a glimpse of why this idea is significant to you.
ATTACHMENT: Include any references or images that may help me visualize the style or subject matter. (Even a crude sketch is helpful!)
If it seems we are a good fit, we will sync up and find a date to meet for a consultation! Thanks so much for being interested in working with me! Cannot wait to hear your ideas! -AA <3
