April Lauren, a tattoo artist based in Colorado Springs, embarked on a transformative journey that aimed to challenge the conventional norms of the tattoo industry and create an inclusive, comfortable space for all individuals seeking unique and personalized tattoo experiences.
Having received her first tattoo at the age of 27, April recognized an opportunity to reshape the perception of tattoo artists and studios. She found herself uneasy in many traditional shops dominated by male artists, struggling to navigate the unspoken rules and seeking answers to her questions.
Encouraged by her husband, April decided to delve into the world of tattoo artistry in 2010, starting as an apprentice. Overcoming initial uncertainties, she discovered her true calling in tattooing. Even a brief hiatus during pregnancy couldn't deter her passion. By 2013, she was back full-time, embracing every moment in the tattoo industry.
April's vision extends beyond gender and stereotypes; she envisions a safe, welcoming environment where both men and women can collaborate to craft one-of-a-kind tattoo pieces. Her art, now proudly displayed on countless individuals, is a testament to her dedication. It's not just ink on skin; it's a form of self-expression, much like choosing an outfit or jewelry.
April Lauren's story exemplifies the power of breaking boundaries and redefining the norms in the tattoo world. She's not just an artist; she's a pioneer, creating a haven for art and self-expression.
