Melissa Santiago

Born in Paterson New Jersey and raised in Connecticut, art has always been her calling.

Growing up, drawing was her escape, whether it was inside for fun or doodling on her math class quiz. You see, art has no limits and is freeing,  and it helped her see life in a different perspective. She excelled in high school, winning contests and awards, and she knew she could make a career out of it with hard work and self discipline. Her hard drive and hunger to do what she loves shows in her work, and she is ready for any style given to her.  She aims to be well-rounded and open to any tattoo ideas or suggestions. Now tattooing professionally for three years, Melissa aspires to be an amazing, one of a kind artist. Custom tattoos are her favorite and she is also starting a journey in black and gray realism,  fine line tattoos in heavy detail. Work is her passion and she works towards expanding her creativity in any way possible.
