Cheryl Simiakakis- Tattoo Artist

Hi, my name is Cheryl, and I am so pleased to be part of the Hartford County family.  I have a solid foundation in both art and tattooing under my belt.  I graduated Cum Laude from Paier College of Art in Hamden in 2005, where I studied illustration and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 2006.  I chose to pursue the field of tattooing, giving me the opportunity to create custom illustrations every day for my clients.  Over the years, I have developed my own unique style of tattooing with roots in graphics, illustrative realism and classic American tattooing.  I love bringing each client's vision to life on their skin in a way that speaks to them.  I always prioritize your safety, comfort and peace of mind.  Each tattoo I do is very important to me, whether it is a tiny butterfly or a full sleeve.  I am truly passionate about tattooing, and want each person I work with to be included in the creative process, resulting in a piece of art they are proud to wear for the rest of their life.  The experience of getting tattooed can be truly positive and add to the beauty of the ink that is applied.
