Christina Opel - she / her
Illustrator / Painter / Graphic Designer / Yoga Teacher
I'm currently a Tattoo Artist in Boulder, Colorado. I'm originally from North Carolina, where I got my BFA in Studio Art and Graphic Design. My Studio Art focus was in oil painting, but you will mostly just see me with my sketchbook, pencils, and pens these days. I worked as a corporate Graphic Designer for 3 years before the pandemic when I quit my job, moved across the country and switched my career. Im going into my second year of tattooing and I love it.
I'm drawn to tattoos because I want to help people create something thats meaningful to them...or not (not all tattoos have to have meaning!). I love tattooing anything botanical / nature, animals, and lady faces. I mostly work in black and grey but would love to do more color.
With my background in Yoga and meditation I hope to create a safe and welcoming space for all of my clients. Sitting for a tattoo is much like its own form of meditation and I know in a way it can sometimes be healing for the client to make the decision to invest in themselves and their idea. I want to support them every step of the way.
