Hi! I'm Kara, a Vancouver Island based tattoo artist. My pronouns are she/her.
In 2013 I began working in a tattoo and piercing shop, and in 2016 I found my opportunity to apprentice as a tattoo artist. I spent a year and a half shadowing my mentor and working hard on my illustration skills, before picking up my first tattoo machine in early 2018.
I love to travel and to learn, and have attending tattoo conventions across BC and Alberta. I even travelled to Los Angeles for the first Explorer Women's Tattoo Summit in 2019!
My tattooing home base is Good Form Tattoos in Nanaimo, BC. I also do monthly guest spots in Victoria at Tattoo Zoo, and regularly travel to Vancouver too.
On my days off you can probably find me at home with my wonderful husband, two corgis, and bunny, or hanging out with friends.
Now you know me a little better!
My clients are all different ages and genders! My youngest clients are 18 and to date, my oldest client was 88! They are often nerds like me, people who love pop culture, DnD, or dinosaurs! My clients come from varied backgrounds.
Nanaimo, BC, Canada (home) - Victoria, BC (monthly) - Vancouver, BC (quarterly)
And guesting in other locations too!
Upcoming guest spots:
Victoria: May 17-20, June 7-10, July 26-29
Vancouver: TBD (summer 2023)
Then I just might be the artist for you!
No worries! Join my newsletter to stay in the loop. You'll also be entered into a monthly $50 tattoo gift certificate giveaway!
Working and living on Vancouver Island.
