Emma was born and raised in Sonoma County by her British mum and American country-boy dad. She was captivated by drawing at a young age (once her tiny little brain realized she was left handed) and continued that trend throughout high school and her short lived college career. When she started getting tattooed, she fell in love with the environment and the people and became set on being a part of the industry. After a few rejections, fate landed her in the presence of Glass Beetle’s own Jared Powell, who agreed to take her on as an apprentice. Emma is now a full time tattooer at Glass Beetle and is loving every minute of it. From American traditional & bright neotraditional, to fine line floral & botanical and anything in between, Emma’s got you covered!
