About

TattooAnnie's Beginnings...

I've been making things since I was small...my mom is a crafting genius and I learned so much from her as a child. (I still do!) She also gave me a beading kit for my 10th birthday, which started my obsession with making jewelry. Through middle and high school I concentrated on beaded and hemp necklaces...I gave them to pretty much everyone I knew back then! I was just happy to see people wearing and enjoying my creations. During my college years I got into punk rock and all the DIY fashion that came with the territory. I improved my sewing skills, started using more vintage and recycled materials, and really learned how to improvise when crafting. All along I was working hard to improve my techniques and the quality of my items. In 2003 some artsy friends convinced me to set up a table at a Gallery Night event and Tattoo Annie was born! I had never sold my items to the public and I was really nervous, but each show my jewelry got better and so did my business. Then I started selling my line at a day spa with an attached shop that sold natural and organic products. I even started doing commissioned pieces for my customers. My good luck continued when I was accepted to sell at various art and craft events in Milwaukee WI and Syracuse NY.

All of my life, I've made things for the simple joy of creating something beautiful, a little piece of art to take everywhere with me. I never thought one day I'd be growing a business from it. I'm really grateful to all my customers...its such a huge compliment when they take a piece home with them!

    My influences are diverse...hippy/granola style from my mom, a bit of punk edge from my years on the scene, some retro/vintage glam picked up at thrift stores, and the cute/creepy combo that comes from a deep affection for Japanese style and design.
