Crystal Martinez


I’ve loved creating art since the moment I could hold a crayon. I fell in love with this city while studying Fine Art at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduation I enjoyed a career in Textile and Graphic design in the fashion industry. However, I wanted to do something more creative and meaningful, so I pursued a career as a tattoo artist. Working one on one with clients to help them achieve their vision is very gratifying. Whether it’s coming up with a new idea, honoring a loved one, or covering up a piece of the past. I use my background in painting, and textile design to help me create colorful dynamic tattoos.
