APPRENTICE

I loved watching and asking questions during the session. It’s cool being on the other side of the conversation these days. After graduating Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011 (BFA, Illustration) I had a few jobs outside of the art field but still pursued my passion on the side. The last 5+ years I’ve spent my time decorating cakes and cookies. This allowed me to work in a way where I felt purposeful while also using my degree. 

I got into tattooing a little later than most. I was alway interested in it, as I started getting tattooed as soon as I could.

Hi, I'm Meg!

I’ve been pushed by my incredibly supportive husband for years to get into tattooing but felt like I lacked the artistic talent and supreme coolness needed to be successful. Alas, in the spirit of YOLO, I went for it and I’m just so damn grateful I did. Every day I get to bring my best to VDTC, my clients and tattooing; I wouldn’t have it any other way! PS. Ask me about my dog.

Transitioning to tattooing has been a dream come true.
