Lana has been tattooing for 8 amazing years. She spent her lifetime searching for a career where she could lay her artistic talents. Hairstyling was her first gig, then graphic design and illustration. Eventually she landed in the tattoo world and has FINALLY found her true niche. To her tattooing is so much more than art. She's been grateful for the opportunity to embellish skin, cover scars and help others tell their story.
specialty: "Black and grey semi-realism, anything horror/gore and new-school"

Josh starting Sam's training in March 2018, and has since blossomed into a very talented tattoo artist and is evolving everyday. Come check out this young talent you wont be disappointed!
