STEPHANIE SIMON

 

How long have you been tattooing? I began tattooing as an apprentice in 2012, and as a professional in 2014.

Which styles of tattooing would you consider to be your specialties? Fever dream-esque, illustrative blackwork, sometimes with neon colors I like to call my style "Horrorlore" since I'm heavily inspired by creepy folklore and history.

Favorite thing to chat about during a session? Ghost stories, traumatizing poop stories (this seems to be a theme for our shop), bad movies and my amateur opinions on how they could be better.

Music guilty pleasure? 90s college rock and commercial jingles.

RICHARD SALAZAR 

How long have you been tattooing?  I've been the shop apprentice at Ninth Life since August 2021, and tattooing on clients for 10 months. My rates per tattoo vary depending on size, placement, and difficulty. Lucky you, my rates are very affordable for clients who are budget conscious.

Which styles of tattooing would you consider to be your specialties?  As a newer tattoo artist I'm still exploring various styles. I like consulting with my clients and drawing/tattooing what they want regardless of style.

Favorite thing to chat about during a session?  Movies, shows, poor life decisions, you know...the usual stuff.

Music guilty pleasure?Folky hipster stuff like Of Monsters and Men and The Lumineers (the shame).
