Hello, my name is Crystal.
I am the Owner/Tattoo Artist at Inkstaind Tattoo Studio. I was Born & Raised in Washington not far from my shop. I am a Sumner High School, Seattle Art Instituted & Evergreen State College Alumni. For as long as I can remember I have always had a love of Art. From the first time I held a pencil I have been drawing. My Grandmother was one of biggest fans & always supported my love of Art! Right out of High School I attended the Art Institute to study Visual Art but never had a career in art until NOW. In October of 2005 I started an apprenticeship in Tattooing, after finishing my apprenticeship I worked in a few shops but found myself not wanting to work in your "Typical" Tattoo Shop. In October 2008 I opened Inkstaind Tattoo Studio where everyone can feel welcomed & comfortable. Thanks to the Support of Friends, Family & Clients I continue to grow everyday as an Artist. I do not limit my self to just one style but I do Favor doing Japanese inspired art, lettering, Realism & Watercolor Style Tattooing. Due to my Graphic Design background the technical part of tattooing came easy. If you feel that your vision meets my style, please contact me so we can work together to make your vision a piece of ART for your personal canvas.
Tattooing is not something I produce, it's something that produces a change both in myself and my clients. In all my years and thousands of Tattoos later, I have yet to finish a tattoo and not look at the world in a new way. To me no Tattoo is too small, every tattoo I do has meaning and every tattoo means something to someone. I love working with my Clients and creating Custom Art for them. Being able to tap into someones vision and bringing that vision to life makes tattooing my passion!
