buddy. was born and raised in New Orleans, LA where they attended the New Orleans Creative Arts for high school.
They then moved to Sarasota, FL and attended the Ringling School of Art and Design majoring in Illustration.
For almost 10 years now, buddy. has been residing in Chicago, and giving all of her attention to tattooing.
In their down time buddy. is a co-founder of Broad Squad.– a collective of femme identifying, trans & non-binary tattooers who organize annual art shows for local charities.
Specializing in illustrated black work, buddy. is inspired by botanical pieces and darker, eerie imagery, especially when they’re able to combine the two.
But the most important fact is knowing how much buddy. loathes the smell of cinnamon & despises the taste of cilantro.
