Tara started tattooing almost 20 years ago, at a time when women were the exception in the business. She gave up her secure job as a technician and started a busy, hard but also, according to Tara herself, a very horny time as a tattoo trainee. Many trips through Asia have confirmed your enthusiasm for this profession and its form of expression. Her apprenticeship led her from Frankfurt am Main via Mannheim (Smilin Demons Tattoo) and Trier (Lonien Tattoo) finally in 2008 to Lörrach, where she opened her first own studio together with Mel.
Tara has been committed to animal welfare for as long as she can remember, has been a vegetarian since she was 16 years old and has been a vegan for several years now. Animal protection and non-animal experimental equipment are therefore also important to her in her profession as a tattooist.
The Japanese and Asian style was her thing from the beginning. The perfect adaptation to the body, large surfaces and motifs with ancient symbolism have fascinated her from the beginning. Developed over thousands of years, the size and clarity of this style makes it beautiful even in old age. The motifs with strong contrasts and clear colours or Shades are effective both from close up and from a greater distance, and Japanese mythology is so diverse that there is a suitable motif for every situation in life and personal history.
