Year You Started Tattooing Professionally:

1997

How You Became Interested in Becoming a Tattoo Artist:

I always had an artistic talent and I was kind of a punk when I was kid. Tattoos were just another thing to get my folks riled up. Becoming a tattoo artist was a fleeting thought at 16, I didn’t consider it again until my husband urged me to go in that direction. I was really unhappy working a desk job even though I was doing graphic design.

Favorite Style/Genre of Tattooing:

My favorite subjects are derived from nature or religion. My favorite style would be painterly.

Tattoo Artists Who Have Inspired You Most:

That list would be endless. My inspiration comes every time I meet another artist or an image catches my eye in a magazine or book. I would say that Vyvyn Lazonga and Michele Wortman would be very high on that list.

Secular Artists Who Have Inspired You Most:

I’m most inspired by local artists, wherever my locale may be at the time. I’ve always loved Escher, Dali, O’Keefe and Kahlo.

Other Interests and/or Hobbies:


I’m always interested in trying out new art materials and mediums. I love hiking and camping, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.

Personal Thoughts from Traci:


I do my best to keep things simple and open. My role as a tattoo artist is to bring the patron’s concept to fruition. I wouldn’t be a tattoo artist if not for tattoo clients.

It’s an equal exchange of input between artist and patron to create a successful tattoo, not a matter of size or money. It’s best for everyone to set egos aside before walking in the door and remember that you get what you give.
