Hello, my name is Kylie.
I am a new artist and recent apprentice at Inkstaind Tattoo, where I learned everything I know about the profession from Crystal.
I grew up in Buckley WA, producing creative drawings from a young age. I graduated from White River with knowledge and passion for art and graphic design, along with several art show awards and publicized pieces of work.
Although I have room to flourish in unlimited styles of tattoos, I have a fondness for American Traditional work. I can’t help but gravitate toward bold lines and bright colors. I’m still pushing my limits and expanding my skill set everyday.
My main focus is to always appease my clients by creating the perfect tattoo for them. I aim to make them proud to represent a piece of their own personality on their skin.
With all of the personal support I have been blessed with in my life, I am confident in my ability to produce custom artwork, worthy of admiration.
Thank you :)
Hello, my name is Crystal.
I am the Owner and one of the Tattoo Artists 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. Right out of High School I attended the Art Institute to study Visual Art.
For as long as I can remember I have always had a love of Art. My Grandmother was one of biggest fans & always supported my passion to do Art!
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!
