FROM TARA SHINN :
🕛NOON TODAY! APRIL 2nd

Since this was so popular the last time, I'm doing another concept drop this Saturday at 12:00!
What's a concept drop? It's an opportunity for me to share large-scale tattoo ideas I've had brewing in hopes of finding them permanent homes! It's first come, first served and will be mostly arm/leg sleeve concepts :) There's one or two back/torso pieces as well.
Small cover-ups are possible, but I will require mostly free skin for these ideas.

My books are still closed for client concepts at this time. I'm going to see how far out these projects book me and evaluate my schedule from there!

Margarita The Cleftie is finally on her daddy’s leg forever. We can’t thank Tattoos By Anya enough for her amazing artwork. She has tattooed all 4 dogs on his legs. Make sure to check her out at Marlowe Ink Tattoo Wilson Roa
Disclaimer - I do not post negative reviews (or even positive reviews/reviews ever) and I respect art and artists and I thought really hard about this and don’t take this lightly.

If you don’t want to read the whole story, here’s the deal: Over the past year, I’ve probably sent 25 people your way. You have lost an advocate and I will not forget how I’ve been treated (for no apparent reason???) the next time someone asks me about who did my tattoo.

In 2018, I connected with Anya to get a tattoo done. She is an incredibly talented artist and a popular artist who can have her book filled for months and months at a time. I sent her a handwritten note asking for consideration next time her book opened up and I was ecstatic when she reached out and made time for me sooner than expected. The work she did was beautiful and I was thrilled. I thought the appointment was fine - it wasn’t my first tattoo and although there were some tender spots, it went well and I tipped well.
Around October 2019 I reached out to get my piece added on to. I was told that the people who got tattooed previously get preferential treatment for follow up work. Her book was full and I was told by someone at the front her book would open early 2020. I continued to check in, probably calling three times total to see if there were updates on when her book would open and there weren’t many. All communications after the original appt w Anya were with the front desk at Marlowe.

I knew her book was getting close to opening so I sent an expensive and pretty awesome necklace made of motor cycle parts (Anya likes to ride) to send as a thank you for the work and a thank you in advance for consideration on adding on to my piece. I didn’t ever hear anything and I realized this morning that she blocked me on Instagram???

I know this seems petty but I just can’t tell you how much it rubs me the wrong away. It’s terrible business to treat someone who has been such an advocate for your business like this. I have respected her wishes on no DMs , I have not been obnoxious, I have been complimentary to her and about her to everyone I’ve ever talked to about the work.

Tattoo artists can be a narcissitic and cold breed of people and I never got great vibes from the woman who runs the front desk at the shop and I am confused and pi**ed and disappointed and they now fall into that category in my mind. This culture and treatment of clients and raving fans is unacceptable.

Not good.
This looks fabulous! Don't miss the latest show of Jorge R. Guitierrez at the Artbot Gallery at Marlowe Ink Tattoo show
