The more creative freedom you allow Kristel to have the more her imagination is able to flourish. This will result in a more impressive tattoo. Kristel often tattoos under similar circumstances. When more creative freedom is given she is able to envision more imaginative scenarios to make your tattoo a closer reflection of your persona or story. Think of a child’s story book.You or your loved one would be represented by what animal Kristel can take this small piece of information along with a photo of the person and make a beautiful work of art that reflects these aspects. Small details like nose shape, freckles, scars, glasses, favorite hat, mustache or beard can give this animal the personality your trying to reflect in your tattoo.  All of the tattoos you see in Kristel’s portfolio come from her heart and soul. Kristel gives you an  intimate part of herself in this process. She cannot give you 100% unless you allow her to express herself. Please remember this is a creative process which entails a transfer of energy between artist and patron.  Taking all this into consideration, asking Kristel personal questions may interrupt the appointment or spoil the creative process.  Kristel has become a very private person Similar to most, Kristel prefers to keep her private and professional life separate other than what she shares on social media. Kristel is grateful for each patron and admirer. However, she does not spend time with clients outside of the studio or expo. Lastly, Kristel asks that you respect her and her wishes as she paints your vision transferred through her imagination.
