Specializing in Realism and Detail
Bella has been working in the Tattoo industry since 2006. Her tattooing career now spans a full 11 years in the industry beginning tattooing in 2008.
She specializes in Highly Realistic and Detailed tattoos, Custom Design and Freehand Design. Bella is also exceptionally versed in both high color and high contrast black and grey tattoos.
Bella truly believes that its not just about the design of a tattoo which makes the piece amazing, but just as important, the placement of the art on the body and how it flows with/highlights the clients body. "An amazing tattoo accentuates the muscles and highlights the clients best physical features. I really enjoy this free handing and highlighting clients physical assets to truly create beauty. Making everyone beautiful around me, that will be my life."
She is very dedicated to her career and works an exceptional amount of time, both in and out of the studio. This allows her to bring her clients vision to life and help them to create their dream tattoo.
Bella completed a lengthly professional tattoo apprenticeship, in a busy professional tattoo studio with several of the best tattoo artists in Western Canada.
She boasts a traditional tattoo apprenticeship, overseeing the front end of a busy professional tattoo studio for over 3 years before being able to begin professionally tattooing under her teachers close supervision and guided direction. Heather began winning awards amongst her peers after only tattooing for 2 years.
In her career she continued ton further educate herself from several of the top professionals in tattooing, working alongside them in several tattoo studios soaking up all of the tattooing knowledge and techniques from her mentors and peers.
" After my professional apprenticeship, I was offered a job at another studio with artists of better skill, so I would give my otice at my studio and start at the new one. I would learn closely under the artists, soaking up as much technique and knowledge as I could. Then after a year or two, I would be offered a better pay at a studio with artists of better skill, so I would leave my studio to move on to the new one. Again learning and soaking up knowledge.
I had an opportunity to work with two of my best friends in the tattoo industry. I jumped on the opportunity immediately, and my career was filled with so much laughter and fun. The three of us were inseperable. I moved to the beautiful Okanagan to Open my own tattoo studio and I miss my best friends terribly. I built the tattoo studio of my dreams in one of the most beautiful places on the planet! And I am committed to continuing to educate myself in my field of professional safe tattooing. I am committed to continuing to grow as Professional artist."

In 2014 Bella saw the need in the Okanagan for her specialized style of tattooing . She then moved from Alberta to Kelowna Bc to open her tattoo studio in the downtown centre. Through Bella's hard work and dedication, her professional tattoo studio quickly became one of the top professional studios in Kelowna.
After several years of being the owner and manager of a busy studio, overseeing multiple artists as staff , and while continuing tattooing full time throughout, Bella decided that managing a large studio and staff while also continuing to draw and tattoo full time, just wasn't for her. She found managing a large studio took time away from her clients and ultimately from her art, which is where her love in the industry lies.
Therefore she relocated the studio to a better location in downtown Kelowna, and to a more appropriate space, suitable to give her clients the one-on-one attention, that she's has always known that they truly deserve.
She now calls her tattoo studio ,
Her clients have mentioned
how much they truly enjoy the move
and the one-on-one time
she makes available just for them,
for their artwork
and for their tattoos.
Bella and her tattoo studio are planning to host several charity events for the community,
this upcoming winter and spring 2020.
Bella is a large believer
that you need to give back to the community
in response to it giving to you.
