Lauren Aleia is a young artist in her second year who has a strong affection for shiny, adorable, and vibrant things, as well as for dark, eerie, and spooky things. She finds manga panels, the ’90s/2000s aesthetics, and movies particularly fascinating and enjoyable. Her passion for pop culture is reflected in her tattoo studio, BST Tattoo, which she runs. She takes immense pride in ensuring that her studio is a safe and welcoming place for everyone. She does this by offering complimentary stickers, candy, and numbing spray to her clients.
