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?
