Grace has been an artist since she can remember. Though a native of Indiana, she always had a desire to travel around the world and explore the realm of art. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts and Education from IU, she was able to achieve her dreams to travel. She moved to the west coast of Ireland in 2009 where she resided for five years. It was during that time she discovered the art and beauty of tattoos. Her new-found inspiration brought her back to Indiana in 2015 to do an apprenticeship. No longer an art teacher, Grace now tattoos full-time and is a new addition to Forever Gallery in Carmel, Indiana.
Grace is a traditionalist at heart and loves the art of coil machine building and collecting. For her, tattoos are therapeutic and storytelling. She believes that self-expression and being able to decorate your body to your own desire is a very powerful thing. This is what draws Grace into making this her lifelong vocation. Her favorite styles include illustrated realism, black and grey line-work and stippling, geometric mandalas, as well as feminine neo-traditional style. She will work with you to make your tattoo experience unique and personal.
