Lindsay K.

Lindsay is one of two artists providing hand poked tattoos out of a shared
space in Studio 416. While her artistic practice revolves primarily around
machine free tattooing, she also works creatively in other mediums
including illustration, embroidery, and jewelry making. With an educational
background in environmental studies and urban geography, Lindsay is a
self-taught artist whose work is deeply influenced by the ways in which
humans and landscapes alter, restrict, and shape one another, as well as
articulations of ecological fragmentation and resilience in urban space.
She aims to create slowly and intentionally, using and reworking earth
based or reused materials to the greatest extent possible. Through her
work, she hopes to facilitate empowerment and heightened control over means
of self-expression in her community.


On Being A Part Of NVRLND

Our shared studio is the ideal space for our method of tattooing - it
affords us a clean, quiet, private space to practice, and because of this,
we’re able to provide our clients with an environment that feels welcoming
and safe. It’s an affordable and comfortable place for us to work, and
somewhere the two of us can share ideas and our other creative pursuits
with each other and our clients. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by
other artists who are accepting and supportive of our work, and whose
diverse knowledge sets and creative pursuits give us such a great deal to
learn from. Additionally, to be able to open our studio up to the public
periodically is a way for us to share our work with a wider audience, and
get to know the community around us – not only of other artists and makers,
but of folks interested in all forms of art in our city and the surrounding
community. We are incredibly grateful to have been given the opportunity to pursue our dreams here at nvrlnd.
