Mary grew up in the Des Moines area and has had an affinity for art since she could hold a pencil. She developed an interest in tattooing as a career in high school, and the fall after graduation, she moved to Ames to apprentice under Hot Rod. Now in her second year of tattooing, Mary looks forward to building a loyal client base and growing as an artist. She loves doing tattoos in the style of American Traditional and Neo-traditional. She also loves anything to do with pets/animals, floral, and ornamental designs.
