About Me

Alycia

My love of art began in early childhood with crayons and pens; I developed a world on paper (and sometimes walls) that fed my creative heart. I drew and kept journals of my creations and still do. Art in all its forms has always moved me, and I feel blessed to be able to use my passion for Art to transform the bodies of the people who entrust their aspirations for transformation and personal expression to me. As an adult I have studied Fine Art and have developed a multitude of interests in other creative forms such as Sacred Fire Dance, Painting, Jewelry making, and Performance Art which all feed into how I craft and deliver my creations as a tattooist. I have been professionally tattooing since 1998 and while I am based out of Sacramento, I love to travel and have worked in various cities and countries. I have been honored to work at conventions such as Saipan, Lady Luck, Seattle, and Long Beach. While my work is a central and significant part of who I am I also love to study healing arts, learn about the world around me, and treasure the time I have with my family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to look at my Art, I hope you find something in it that moves you.

“This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”

~ Walt Whitman
