My name is Melissa Martell. I'm a tattoo artist and owner of The Glass Cat, a private tattoo studio in Cleveland, Ohio. I have a background in graphic design and fine art and 8 years of tattoo experience. My tattoo style is cute, bold, whimsical, and often anthropomorphic. When I’m not tattooing, I’m making art, hanging out with my partner, Jacob and our Chihuahua, Jerri.

Visit my contact page to book.

I also travel frequently to Show Pigeon Tattoo in the City of Orange, CA.

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.

She owns her own studio in Glendale, Los Angeles. Follow her and book a tattoo.
