I am currently booking tattoos in the end of February beginning of March Thursdays through Sundays 12p-8p
I apologize for being a little absent in the first half of the month. I traveled home to Michigan for the first time in 7 years. It was both lovely and exhausting, as visits home tend to be. I also apologize for missing my shops Valentines Day Flash day. I’d be happy to still tattoo any of these designs at the discounted price if you book with me before the end of February (appointment can be in March).
I’m excited to try new things and really get myself out in the community. On February 21st I set up an art table at an awesome new queer art monthly event at Escape Bar. It was super fun. I have a couple paintings in an upcoming exhibit at Sonny’s House Of called My Buddy Dorothy. The opening of that exhibit is on March 3rd and I will have more info to share on my instagram. Join me there @erin_m_creates
Here’s to more cool art and tattoos in March!! I’m about to renew my license and it’s wild to think it’s been 7 years since I started learning at tattoo school. I’m feeling confident and I know I have more to learn. Please help me survive. Book a tattoo or grab an acrylic or digital commission!! It really helps me and my family out. Especially since my wife was laid off in December. Thank you to everyone who has trusted me with their tattoos over the years!!!!
I’m running deals on these flash pieces. Feel free to email email@example.com to book with me in SE Portland. And check out erin_m_creates on Instagram for more witchy designs and TikTok for random art vlogs.
Today I took my car to get serviced. I grabbed a coffee and drew this illustration. I am so excited to go to Italy!! We never got to go on a big honeymoon trip so we’re doing it up this anniversary. I’m gonna look at so much art! And eat so much good food!!
I’m not sure how responsive to messages or emails I will be while I’m gone. But for sure I will go through them when I am back on the 18th. I’ll be coming back inspired and filling up my schedule with cool ass tattoos and holiday commissions!
I have some time available in my schedule before I leave. From now to the 5th I have tattoo appointments available. Otherwise I’ll be booking after September 22nd.
Don’t forget to hit me up if you’d like a commission for the holidays. I will have limited time so sign up early. I do digital illustration and acrylic paintings. I can do portraits, pets, landscapes, original characters… any idea you got we can make happen!
I’ve been feeling really creative and confident in my skills recently. Having fun making art! I’ve been just drawing and getting better. It feels weird to not feel imposter syndrome but I think I’m a better artist when I am confident.
Thank you so much to everyone who has trusted me to tattoo them!! I’m just gonna keep growing!
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800-273-8255 I had a family member die this week. It has been hitting me especially hard because so much of my family struggles with mental illness. It’s hard to loose someone and have my whole family far away. I want to apologize for missing our Friday the 13th Flash Event. I will be offering my flash designs all weekend. So if I missed you I can get you in. Thanks for understanding!!
I will be updating my schedule. It’s basically the same but Thursday/Friday will be 12-5 and Saturday/Sunday will be by appointment only.
Hello I wanted to give y’all a bit of an update on my life and work!!
We have moved back to Portland and I’ve started working at Saint and Sinners Tattoo in SE. I work there Thursday Friday 12-5 and Saturday Sunday 12-8. I’ve been struggling with my mental health but am doing much better and am recommitting to making art and tattoos. I am still available for commissions as I have time for them. I work part time at an office one day a week. LIfe is busier and good. Having fun playing DND. We’re able to afford small things for ourselves and eating out occasionally. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to do that.
So excited to make more art, grow and learn this Spring/Summer. Hope to work with y’all on some awesome new designs. I’d love to do witchy, nature inspired, colorful, neotraditional, art historical or queer designs of any kind.
Recently I have had a lot of fun painting pet portraits for some of my friends and family. I am always open for commissions of acrylic paintings of any of your animals.
First we’ll chat about pricing size reference photos and any colors or elements you’d like to include. Then I send you a selection of thumbnails for you to chose your favorite. Finally I make you a one of a kind painting of your baby.
If you’re in Oregon come check out my work at a One Day Only Show through the Lake Oswego Festival of the arts this Sunday the 27th. The event is taking place outside. Also limited guests will be allowed in to create space for social distancing so I will not be there to answer questions or say hi but I’ll have some art up and for sale.
