How many black female tattoo artists can you name?

Statistics say that female tattoo artists make up for about 2% of the entire industry. I can only imagine what percent of those are African American. When I first started tattooing many people doubted that I would be successful, especially being a woman in a male dominated field.  A couple years ago, I had a vision of bringing professional black female tattoo artists together to tour cities in the United States. I already knew of a few but through research I was able to reach out to others whom all agreed to be a part of the "Ladies of Ink" tour.  Summer 2017 we toured 7 cities, Summer 2018 we will be touring 9 cities more!
