My name is Julia Hayes. I'm a tattooer working in Brooklyn, New York. I've been a visual artist my entire life, with focus in illustration and ceramics. I spent 4 years as a shop assistant, and am now in my second year of tattooing. Originally from rural northern California, I've been living in New York for the last 7 years.
I specialize in illustrative blackwork, primarily natural themes - plants, animals, humans, science and magic. My work is influenced by scientific illustration, printmaking, realism, and folk art.
