Get to Know Bear
What year did you start tattooing?
I’ve been licensed since the fall of 2018.
What style(s) of tattooing do you specialize in?
I do a lot of fine line tattooing with a wide range of subject matter from abstract people, animals, and landscapes. I would love to incorporate more fine line tattooing into a manga/anime style. I also love tattooing small scale realism, and anything with surreal or fantasy concepts!
What are your hobbies?
Throwing sticks for my dogs, mountain biking, seeing live music, and drawing while listening to podcasts. I go through nostalgic phases too. Last year, I reminisced on the Pokemon days and busted out an old GameBoy. This year, I’ve gotten into shooting Polaroid film.
What is some of your favorite music?
Anything with beautiful and confessional lyrics, Lo-fi, emo, indie-rock, alt-rock. Does Mitski, Phoebe Bridgers, Soccer Mommy ring a bell? I tend to go for alternative girl bands.
Which super power would you like to have?
I would have to say flying. It's like teleporting but better! I’m all about the thrill.
Besides tattooing what other type of art do you like to create?
I’ve dabbled in a lot of paint mediums. I’d say watercolor and gouache are my favorite. I love layering colors to get a deep matte look in my paintings.
