Natalie has been an artist all her life, as far back as she can remember art has been her driving force. She began her apprenticeship at Blackwork Tattoo Studio in North Jersey in 2010, and worked her way into tattooing professionally, receiving her license to legally tattoo in 2015. Since then she has worked in various styles, from black and grey portrait work to full color illustrative.
Each tattoo she does is a testament to her skill, passion and love for tattooing. Working with clients to collaborate on a unique tattoo is their favorite part of this work. She sees tattooing as a way to connect to ones authentic self, celebrate our challenges, triumphs and face the world with an armor of tattoos.
Currently at Blackwork tattoo where she began her career all those years ago, she hopes to tattoo and create art for the foreseeable future.
