I have been apart of the tattooing industry since I was 15. Drawing custom tattoo designs for friends and local tattoo parlors ignited my passion for this ancient art form. Once I was able, I didn't hesitate at the opportunity to learn the techniques and history. I have been tattooing since 2006.


My techniques and inspiration have stemmed from my love for art. Gaining my Bachelor's in Fine Arts in drawing, illustration and art history has allowed me to use my formal skills and combine them worldwide influences to customize my client’s tattoos.

I love it all and I love this job!



I specialize in realism, portraiture, figurative, historical/cultural tattoos. I love doing just about anything! Greyscale or color.

Sonia's work and art amazes me! She is an artist dedicated to her craft, and it shows! I received one tattoo from Sonia in a few installments. After a 5 plus hour sitting, my skin healed beautifully within three days. Compared to other tattoo artists I've worked with- these people claimed several more years of experience- she is hands down the best! Her skill with the needle is as precise as her drawing. I felt very happy with my results and the amount of communication about what I wanted. I will be getting more and more of her work in the future!Items.

Sonia is amazing! She did my first tattoo and did an amazing job! She was so nice about me being scared but it wasn't so bad. She designed my future tattoo and it's super cool and I can't wait for her to start on that

My mother and I have both drove 4+ hours to be tattooed by Sonia. She is such a joy to be around and she does such an amazing job. I'm very, VERY, picky on how I want things done and she hits it out of the park everytime. I will continue to drive 4+ hours to see her. She does amazing work!
