Hello beautiful beings!

For some time now I've been hoping to connect with an experienced local female tattoo artist to discuss setting up an ongoing trade arrangement. I'm interested in a cover-up, a few touch-ups and/or the completion of one or both sleeves. It's important to me to have a relationship with the artist I'll be working with, especially for a long-term project, and I would love to support another self-employed woman with much needed relaxation and treatment work. Barter is awesome!

So, I'm putting it out into the Universe! If you are (or know!) this wonderful person, please reach out! I would love to see your creative work and give you a sample of what I do; perhaps we'll be a perfect fit! :)

After seven years in the field & thousands of hours of massage, I'm confident in my work. I have a perfect, 100% pos...
