Josh Figueroa is a recent transplant from the San Francisco Bay Area now living in Ann Arbor! Getting his start in a proper street shop in Oakland, California (across the street from the police station). He was able to become a versatile tattooer, taking on anything that may walk through the door. He specializes in spooky and macabre art but is by no means limited to that.
Danielle Felczak is our owner and a veteran artist. She has been tattooing since 2005 and specializes in brilliantly colored tattoos, but can pretty much tattoo anything you put in front of her.
She studied Fine Art in College. She aspires to bring her creative visions to life so her clients can proudly wear beautiful pieces of artwork.
Dee White has been tattooing since 2010 and joined the Authentic team in 2016. She worked in Northern California for years. Loving and caring for her avocado babies comes second to her dedication for crisp lines and happy clients.
Shannon Parcell. Our very own tattoo zapping mermaid. She is a very talented and passionate artist who enjoys using her adoration of vibrant color and illustrative line work to create one of a kind pieces of skin art and has a great appreciation for the cute, the creepy, the feminine, and the edgy. Having graduated college with her bachelor of fine arts degree in oil painting she also likes to spend her time in the studio dreaming up and solidifying fanciful oil imagery and drawing one or two or five butts. Because who doesn’t enjoy a good booty?
