Ari (ZZ) ~ Tattoo Artist ~ Westside
Proof of Vaccination Required
I was raised in the Madison area but moved out to Cleveland at 18 to attend the Cleveland Institute of Art. After receiving my BFA I worked as a jeweler/metal smith for years on and off. I decided to further my art education at UW Madison and graduated with a MFA. I have always expressed my art through various mediums, like drag and performance, illustration, and enameling. I'm thrilled to be a part of the art of tattooing and love working with clients to create a lasting piece of wearable art.
My favorite style to tattoo is fine line illustrative, in soft black and grey or vibrant color. I draw inspiration from pop culture,mainly manga and anime, historical works of art, the human figure and the natural world.
I aim to create a safe and welcoming environment in my tattoo space. I believe getting tattoos can be a transformative and cathartic experience. I’m happy to walk through the tattoo process with any client and I practice active consent in my space to make clients as comfortable as possible. If you need any accommodations to enjoy the tattoo process, please ask during our consultations!
