Tell us about your shop/studio – what can a client expect when they walk through your doors?

My studio design is decorated with light colors easy to the eye as soon as you walk in. My team made up of a group of girls and we all work together, empowering one another. The nice thing about my studio and something that is obvious and pointed out by everyone who visits is that it’s a fun place to be and the vibes are positive. In the waiting area, we have a foosball table that loosens up the tension of some clients that might feel tensed before getting inked.
