Tattoo Artist, Makeup Artist, and Esthetician
My name is Chris and I have been working as a tattoo artist under the apprenticeship of Justin Abel at his shop in Mountain Home, Idaho for the past 8 months. My tattooing journey started after moving to Mountain Home from Portland, Oregon. Over the course of 3 years I had been studying the art of body painting, makeup, and skin care. I started those studies one summer after going on a 500-mile bike tour along the Pacific coast where I wore bright lipstick and peddled away with just myself, a few bags, and a tent. I did that tour with bright lips to break gender stereotypes within the art community specifically in the makeup art industry and show that makeup and art is for anyone to use! I am a licensed esthetician in the state of Oregon and completed my study graduating with a makeup honors course at Paul Mitchell the School of Portland. I love coming up with creative artwork inspired by the world and people around me. I have been using that skill to create artwork for people that will last them a lifetime with a personalized tattoo.
