I am a resident artist at 26 Swords, in Grants Pass, OR. I began tattooing in Eureka, CA at Skinsignea Tattoo where I worked for eleven years after studying graphic design and studio art at Humboldt State University. I then worked at the Wallingford Slave to the Needle in Seattle, WA for eight years. After that I worked at Call of the Wild Tattoo in Coeur d'Alene, ID for four years.
I am Sydney. I grew up in small town Grants Pass, Oregon, where our shop is located. I love tattooing, and when I’m not tattooing I prefer to be hiking in the mountains or at the river. I’m also a big fan of baking/cake decorating, and a little known fact about me is I grew up playing classical cello. My favorite tattoos are black and grey stippling or “kawaii” style. Bring me all your cute shit!
