My name’s Saraloni (pronounced sarah-law-knee). I’ve been tattooing since 2010 and have been an artist my whole life. I loved working with charcoal and pencils before I started my career, and now all I want to do is tattoo. I occasionally paint with oils and am hoping to learn more oil painting techniques in the future. But when it comes to tattooing I am always learning something new and I will always strive to be an even better artist.
I’m mainly self taught, But I have had a lot of great artists help me and give me great longstanding advice through the years, like Jaime Keith, Gene Heideman, Nic Westfall, and Sirris Slay. These guys have helped me grow into the artist I am today. Some artists that really influence and inspire me are Nikko Hurtado, Benjamin Laukis, Josh Duffy, Teneile Napoli, Lianne Moule… man the list could go on! I truly hope that someday I will be on their level.
I’m a pretty well rounded artist as far as styles go. But my favorite thing to do is portraits! Color and black and grey, especially well known faces, like movie or video game characters. I am DEFINITELY a nerd at heart! So anything from Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, etc. is RIGHT up my alley! I’m also really into flowers and doing watercolor flower melts.
In my free time I’m usually watching movies/tv series, going for rides on my motorcycle, spending time with my boyfriend, playing LOTS of Dungeons and Dragons, painting, or completing quests in my newest favorite video game. I love wine and cats (we have three), and if we have any of the many things I listed in common, then I’m sure we will get along wonderfully.
