Before TyAnne began apprenticing under Hot Rod in late 2014, she had built an extensive background with college level art courses, stemming from her love for drawing ever since she can remember, and serving with the Iowa Army National Guard [since January 2012] in her hometown of Mason City, Iowa – born and raised with farm life living, where she trained horses and rode in fairs and shows, and now living in Ames. The addition of body art to her list of artistic mediums has instilled a new passion and lifestyle. With every day and every client, she loves the new experiences that come with each and with each person met along the way; and is eager to learn more in every aspect of the industry. With her vast background of leadership and management roles from military and past jobs, she assists in managing the Newton shop, overseeing various aspects of business operations. TyAnne is able to tackle a variety of styles, dabbling a little bit in every kind, but is comfortable in doing Black & Grey and Realism pieces – though not limited to by any means! For clients with a basic idea and a little artistic freedom, she loves to create custom tattoo designs that will be unique and one of a kind. TyAnne hopes to attend more conventions, go to seminars, and learn everything she can, and more for practices of the industry; always seeking out more knowledge!
She also provides Photoshop and Illustrator work for others looking to create shirt designs, business cards, banners, fliers, vinyl for cars and storefronts, and more! Anything is possible to create. Check out TyAnne’s portfolios to get a firsthand look of her work!
