Born and raised in California Emily Effler moved to Tennessee as a teenager, where she discovered fine art as an escape from the odd tempo of the south. Working in tattoo shops since she was 18, Emily has learned under everyone from old school sailors to legendary black and grey artists like Tony Olivas.
Her style focuses on melding breathtaking illustrative works with the solid lines and color of traditional tattooing. Whether you’re looking for a black and grey portrait, a lushly colored flower, or an intricate map of the solar system Emily’s needle is ready to bring your dreams to life. She’s the proud parent of two lovely cats, and will happily show you pictures upon request.
