Misty Locket has been tattooing in the Phoenix area for 18 years specializing in black & gray/color realism, surrealism, portraiture, nature, and coverups. Misty looks at the craft of tattooing as so much more than a permanent piece of art on one’s body. It’s a spiritual and energy exchange that the client will have forever along with the memory of the entire journey attached to it.
Because of the very personal exchange of energy and ideas between the tattooer and client, it’s of the utmost importance that care and attention is taken for the preparation, placement, and conversation around the tattoo design. It is very important that the tattoo design is structurally sound so that it looks good in the future and last as it ages. Having solid and honest conversations around the foundation of the tattoo is what makes for a strong and long lasting design.
There is so much joy in making art all day on bodies. Every tattoo piece becomes a passion project for me.
