Rachel from Alaska

I am a wild child of Alaska. The green canopy of spruce trees and flitting birch leaves, white and black trunks jetting out of a sea of rolling moss beds. Crops of fiddlehead ferns unfurl from the moss throughout the year, while clusters of those petite, white dogwood flowers spring up intermittently. The memories of running through the woods, harvesting the …

RachelG created a wonderful mermaid pirate tattoo for me here in Homer.  I wanted this tattoo on my arm to have an adventure and travel theme.  What’s great about this tattoo is that is represents the alpha a woman possesses.  Getting this tattoo was such a great time.  The environment is welcoming as you walk into the perfect size shop by …

Logan from Alaska

My fiancé and I moved to Homer full time a few months ago and can’t express how excited we were when we stumbled upon Rachel’s Instagram account.

Sophie from Maine

My tattoos are a representation of my life path so far… What a gift it is to grow into the spaces we cultivate. This tattoo is a commitment, a vow, to always soar towards my highest self. A reminder of the wholeness that exists within all relations. My lady is part owl, part wolf, part tree and yet all these …

Shara from Kauai
