Vickie is originally from Taiwan and came to United States for Art school. When she made the move to LA her path took a wonderful turn.

She found Earth Altar and fell into the world of tattooing. Her favorite part about being a tattoo artist is that she gets to work with different clients and listen to their unique stories. It is a job that's all about connection. Her personal style is gentle and botanical. She loves every moment of the collaborative and creative experience that is tattooing.

Emma specializes in black and grey illustrative tattooing. She is  inspired by plants and flowers and anything that nature creates. She also loves collecting out of copyright vintage illustrations from books and databases, and using those as inspiration and reference for many of my tattoos.

Jessie is from Chicago and moved to Los Angeles in 2021 to pursue her career on the West Coast. She is a lifelong artist and began working in the tattoo industry in 2014.
