Hi, my name is Amanda and I’ve been tattooing since 2008. My whole life has been filled with art; as a small child, my parents would find me awake, late at night, drawing quietly in my room. As an adult, I found myself drawn to making a living at art and graduated with a degree in fine arts from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Unfortunately, an artist’s career is easier said than done.
Roller derby took over my life in 2005 and that’s where I started falling in love with the art of tattooing. Through one of the Derby Dames, I met some tattooists at a local reputable shop. Steve Bauer, the owner of Premier Tattoo, took me on as an apprentice. I spent two years there before I moved up to Tribal Rites Tattoo and Piercing in Boulder, Colorado.
In Boulder, I’ve branched out and expanded my technique and style. I apply myself diligently to my work and learn new things every day while making people more colorful.
