My name is Julia Hayes. I am an apprentice tattooer in my first year, working in Brooklyn, New York. I've been a visual artist my entire life, with focus in illustration and ceramics. I have 4 years experience working in tattoo shops. Originally from rural northern California, I've been living in New York for the last 7 years. 

I specialize in blackwork, primarily natural themes - plants, animals, humans, science and magic. My work is influenced by scientific illustration, realism and folk art.
