Master Tattoo Artist and Painter
Sasha’s tattoo work is soft, authentic-looking, and individualized to the ideal size, shape, and skin-type of each client to replicate and enhance the client’s natural features. The inspiration for Sasha’s artistic tattoos stems from her love of flowers and figurative work. As a fine artist, she is highly skilled in creating three-dimensional images on two-dimensional surfaces and in expertly recreating natural colors to compliment skin tones. In addition to her technical skills, Sasha is gifted with a warm personality and provides her clients with a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere throughout the tattoo experience.
