ALANA GRAUER

My name is Alana, I’m originally from Connecticut and have been in Florida for 8 years now. I have had a love of art from a young age. I graduated with a bachelor of fine arts from Florida Atlantic University. If I’m not tattooing I’m painting, drawing, and sculpting. I love tattooing it allows me to create art every day.  I especially love to tattoo any floral, animal, and pet portraits. I specialize in black and grey, realism, micro tattoos, and fine line. My goal as a tattoo artist is to create art and give my clients a safe and happy environment for everyone to get tattooed.
