When it comes to body art tattoos, Danielle has a versatile style and does not limit herself to one style because of the fluctuations in trends.
“I love color realism the most and soft, delicate or feminine tattoos,” Danielle says. I am open to most designs except directly satanic, racist, or horror-related imagery.
Danielle is also an expert in permanent makeup tattooing, specializing in eyeliner, brows, scar coverup, and 3D areola tattooing. She loves helping men and women gain the confidence they were missing with a little ink.
For body piercings, Danielle uses only implant-grade steel, titanium, and gold. She pierces anywhere except the genitalia.
