Best professional female tattoo artist in Tampa

Kristen Navarro and her story

Kristen’s story to becoming a female tattoo artist is an interesting one. Kristen Navarro was born right here in Tampa to Puerto Rican parents. Drawing since she could remember, she was heavily influenced by horror imagery, heavy metal, and latino culture. While pursuing her artistic dreams, she attended Blake High-school of the Arts. There, Kristen spent her time studying the fundamentals of art and art history. She also gained skills in ceramics, metal smithing, and film photography.

After High-school, Kristen found herself at Tabernacle Tattoo. The history and energy of tattoo art and tattoo artists was inspiring, and something clicked in her brain. She fell in love with tattoo art and culture and made it her sole mission to give tattooing the passion and dedication it needs. Kristen’s goal is to provide an extraordinary service with a smile, and to put her all into every tattoo she makes and become the best female tattoo artist out there.

When Kristen is not tattooing, she is a dedicated painter and illustrator. She is always looking for ways to improve upon her craft and is always working on something new. She enjoys watercolor, oil painting, and acrylics. Additionally, she enjoys pen and ink illustrations and color pencil work. When she’s not working on art, Kristen enjoys cuddling with her pets Bob and Giblet and laughing at her own jokes.
