Hi, I'm
   Tori!

Hi, I'm Tori! (They/them) I am a Durham NC based tattoo artist and digital artist. I have been tattooing since 2021. I love all things cute and sparkly! I grew up watching anime, playing videos, and being a chronically online gremlin my whole life. All of these things have greatly inspired my work! I always prefer things to be BOLD! In terms of color, linework, and my dumbass jokes. Tattooing is my absolute passion and I cannot imagine doing anything else. It brings me so much joy to create and share art with all of my clients! I also take great pride in my bedside manner for all of my clients. Getting tattooed is already a kinda stressful and painful process so I want to do whatever I can to make sure you are comfortable and happy!

Artstyle & Education

I love all the sparkly cute things. But I also love neo-traditional. I love blending those styles so much! I also enjoy tattooing anime/manga! Likewise, any videogame-themed tattoos are always a blast!

I have a bachelor's in New Media and Design from UNCG. I focused my studies on color theory, composition, and digital art. I still actively work on building my artistic skills every chance I get!

 I am deeply passionate about creating and bringing my client’s custom visions to life and I always say, “my clients always have the best ideas I’m just here to draw them out!”.

I am also equally passionate about making sure to create a safe and comfortable environment for each and every client and I will try to cater to any needs my clients might need!

Hi,
I'm Helen!

Hi, I’m Helen (she/they), and I am so excited to serve as a “booking coordinator” for Tori/UnBirthday Ink! I’ve known Tori for 12+ years, as they are not only my best friend, but also my sibling-in-law. I’ve been very lucky to get so many amazing tattoos from Tori over the years, and have loved getting to see them grow and blossom as an artist. In recent years, I’ve gotten to assist Tori at conventions and help them run their booth, and over time, stepping in to help them handle the booking process just made sense!

A Bit More About Me:

I currently live in Durham, NC with my lovely spouse and 2 cats. I have 20+ tattoos and also work as a speech-language pathologist at several hospitals in my area. I aim to make the booking process as easy as possible, and can’t wait to help facilitate Tori doing your dream tattoo for you!
