Kate is a trans-femme queer identified tattooist and illustrator who has been tattooing professionally since 2014. Her love of anatomy, meticulous technique, attention to detail, and scientific approach are the common threads between her medical training as a doctor of medicine and her current work as a tattoo artist. Kate has been drawing silly comics since she was a little kid, and has previously made her living as a musician, a portrait artist, a chemist and a painter. She is naturally drawn to ink and strong line work in any style from her background as an illustrator. Kate loves tattooing blackwork, traditional, illustration, and illustrative realism; her favorite subjects are roses, plants/floral pieces, animals, mandalas, large blackwork decorations, tough stuff like skulls and snakes, illustrations, and nerd stuff.
Other than drawing tattoos, Kate likes to travel, read comic books, do yoga, drink coffee, play musical instruments, and watch Gravity Falls while refining her ever growing list of dream pets.
