Lauren was born in Boston, MA. She became a tattoo artist at sixteen. In 2008, she moved to Atlanta, GA and entered Oglethorpe University, where she received a BFA. During her studies, Lauren created prints and drawings. She combined these classic techniques with her skills in Traditional tattooing techniques, developing her Illustrative style that has become unique. Lauren makes tattoos using the machine-free method, as she finds it visually superior. She currently works at SparrowHawk Studio in Atlanta, Georgia.
