I, Lita, am Co-owner and full time artist at Red Tattoo Parlor. To me everything is and can be considered art, so why not express it, for when we see it that way that the real beauty in things come to light.
I have worked in the creative arts industry for many, many years, and have been an artist my entire life, without any schooling or art design college. Me and my family are natural born artists, passing on from one generation to the next. I contain a well-rounded knowledge in design, art, structure, color, and reading people in general. I prefer to work with larger, challenging, creative pieces that take time, effort, research and thought. I can work comfortably with no ideas, or something specific, but rely heavily on the spiritual connection between myself and the client. I want to convey a piece that will tell the story they are seeking to tell, and be an artistic piece I am proud to put into my portfolio or hang on the wall. I am passionate about my career and my work, attending Paradise Tattoo Gathering each year since 2011 for ongoing education in tattooing beneath the best in the world. Some of my educators have been Jeff Gogue, Durb Morrison, Alex de Pase, Gunnar, Bob Tyrell, Nikko Hurtado, Russ Abbott, Ian Mckown, Nick Baxter, Stefano Alcantara, Gabe Ripley and more. I’ve learned more about tattooing as a whole, and the importance of giving back by attending these seminars.
My favorite slogan is “The world needs dreamers and the world needs doer, but more importantly, the world needs dreamers who do” …unknown
Miss Sophi has a superior background in the Creative Arts, and is Co-owner of Red. She has successfully owned and operated three business in her lifetime, and as many know her, is an embellisher to any scene. She is confident, sexy, and brassy. Her work with color and design goes far beyond the basics, and loves to focus on helping and empowering others to find their true confident side. She is always helping others in learning more about themselves and understanding that tattooing is more than skin deep and has come to love the art of tattooing. Sophi’s specialty is watercolor style in any size. She is also our resident body piercer and house manager so her hands stay full, but tattooing is what she loves.
Her favorite slogan is “Leap first, then grow your wings on the way down”…unknown
