Katie grew up in the small town of Conway, Arkansas but moved to Little Rock in 2011. Ever since she was a child she has had a passion for drawing, and was lucky enough to land a tattoo apprenticeship in her hometown. Katie has been tattooing since 2010 and got the opportunity to compete on seasons 6 (2015) and 9 (2017) of Ink Master reality TV show and returned to guest judge on Ink Master Angels in 2018.
"I love tattooing neo traditional imagery such as mandalas, lady faces, pet portraits, and flowers. I enjoy using bold line work and thoughtful color palettes to help bring the imagery to life. I love what I do and I’m thankful I get the opportunity to share my art with the world". -Katie
