Meet the Artist

Hello everyone! My name is Dani Blalock, and I have been tattooing since 2012. I am a Charlotte native now living in Gastonia with my wonderful husband Chris and our three beautiful children.

I have been creating art for as long as I can remember, and tattooing is something I have always wanted to do. Coming from a family of artists, drawing came naturally as a child. I’ve always had a huge imagination and the desire to draw the images in my head into existence, as a child art always remained a constant. My influences run deep; the first I can remember were comic book illustrators, science fiction artists, Dali, anything that represented a world that was simply “other”. I began painting seriously in middle school and fell in love when I found that the images held power where my words could not.

I believe that tattoos are even more potent, and I am excited to help others turn their ideas into meaningful artwork and tattoos. I specialize in nature inspired tattoos and fun color work! I’d love to take on more of the styles that I love which include neotraditional, black and gray realism, surrealism, and also subject matter with a darker aesthetic.
