Emily Graven started here at Tattoo Mafia in October of 2015. Emily completed a full-time apprenticeship directly under senior artist and studio owner, Chris DeLauder. Emily’s apprenticeship consisted of training through the Red Cross in BBP, First Aid and CPR. The training included proper coverage of everything in the work area, proper set up and break down of work areas, as well as cleaning and sterilization using hospital standards. Next she was trained in all styles of tattoo art including traditional, new school, fine line, and realism in both color and black and gray. She was required to produce multiple flash sheets of custom artwork each week to be reviewed and critiqued by the entire studio staff. This curriculum is rigorous, intense, and thorough. Once her work on paper was up to par, she was trained in digital art and graphics.
She was also required to learn and use different styles of tattoo equipment including machines, needles, tubes, cartridges and pigments. Everything required of was to assist her in learning the tools to becoming the best artist she can be. She also learned the importance of customer service and dependability. Emily started working with clients in January of 2017 and has quickly picked up a following! Emily worked her first couple tattoo conventions in 2017 . She is a natural artist and has a bright future ahead of her in the tattoo industry. In her spare time, Emily enjoys expressing her creativity through new art mediums, and spending time with her cat and boyfriend
