Best Female Tattoo Artists
Who are the Best Female Tattoo Artists in the USA you ask? Well actually you did ask…many times in your search terms. Maybe not YOU personally but lots of tattoo fans actively seek out the best artists and believe it or not this info can be a bit hard to track down, mainly because it is just opinion (my favorite!).
One persons article (or blog or magazine) may not agree with another because tastes vary, criteria is subjective, and everyone has their favorites. Not to mention ridiculously talented artists appear on the scene regularly (yeah for tattoo fans!) so today’s list might be woefully incomplete 5 years from now.
Who am I to say who are the best female tattoo artists? I’m no expert but here is MY biased and subjective list for you to ponder and disagree with. The criteria is; must be working in the USA, must work in a tattoo shop (no scratchers – even if they are crazy talented) and must be a woman (otherwise the title of the post makes no sense).
For my list of best female tattoo artists I chose artists that work in a variety of styles. Most (if not all) of them are already pretty well known. Some have been on TV (being on a show doesn’t make you talented BUT some very talented tattoo artists have been on TV – dig?)
I chose artists based on skill alone and not their standing in the tattoo community. There are many old school, legendary, female tattoo artists out there – none of them are on this list. That is not a slight or an insult. I just wanted to highlight artists that I personally love that are probably working up to legendary status. Enough chatter – on to the list. (and it’s in alphabetical order!)
10 of the Best Female Tattoo Artists
Hannah Aitchison – one of the undisputed masters of the pin-up girl. Hannah has been on TV and you probably recognize her name but have you taken a close look at her portfolio? – she is the real deal – CRAZY talented (and also a total sweetheart!) located at The Curiosity Shop in Pittsburgh, PA
Erin Chance – Erin creates intensely detailed and richly color saturated tattoos that look like paintings – wow! Currently opening a studio – Unkindness Art – with fellow Top Ten-er Teresa Sharpe in Richmond, Virginia.
Liz Cook – Liz Cook is known for her excellent portraits and signature roses. She brings photo realism to a new level with her eye popping petals and leaves.
Roxx – One of the most talented artists working in black work and dot work – her portfolio speaks for itself. If this bold style is your thing get on her wait list Now! Roxx is at 2Spirit Tattoo in Los Angeles, CA
Why? Because her work is so insanely good it hurts. Getting on her list is like trying to hop a ride on a Unicorn but I haven’t given up hope…yet. Teresa is in the process of leaving Studio 13 in Fort Wayne and relocating to Richmond VA to open Unkindnes Art with Erin Chance – power couple!
