A North Carolina native, Mel is an artist at heart. She moved to Tampa, Florida to study art and animation, completed her apprenticeship after graduation, and has been tattooing since 2011.
Her favorite tattoo styles are minimalist designs, fine line floral pieces, watercolor, and black-and-grey—really anything she can get lost in that requires great attention to detail and precision.
When Mel’s not tattooing, drawing or painting, she’s hanging out with her husband, collecting Harry Potter memorabilia, or just relaxing with a movie. She also makes a mean duct tape wallet.
