Justine Serebrin Almaraz is a native of Southern California. At the age of 7 her mother gave her a “how-to” face painting kit. This was the beginning of a lifetime of learning all forms of art. This included a fine arts degree from Otis College, work as a professional body painter, a tattoo artist, a published oracle card deck creator, and founder of the ‘Intuitive Artist Mastery Code’ an online art school for intuitive artists. She is the owner of the conscious tattoo shop, Earth Altar Studio in Eagle Rock, Ca., and the pioneer of ‘intuitive tattooing’.
Always devoted to spirituality, the vision of intuitive tattooing came about during one of her deep meditations. She was in a wood-clad room on the ocean, warm rays of sunshine lighting up dust particles through large windows and shining on a woman’s back. Justine was behind the woman, no one she knew in particular, and she was tattooing her back. This intimate moment held the common understanding that the woman was receiving a healing from her in the form of a tattoo. From this point on Justine was determined to make this vision a reality. Flash forward to today, she has had hundreds of clients who travel far and wide for a tattoo from her. These sessions begin with an intuitive energy reading which is then alchemized into a meaningful tattoo design drawn directly on the body. A permanent and symbolic reminder of what Justine sees of them in their highest vibrational form; always one of healing and up-leveling for the highest good.
Her process has simplified over the years as she is divinely guided in each session. If you're interested in this experience you can book a session now and read more about it in her WELL + GOOD article .
We wanted to share a few incredibly kind words from Court R. . .
This ain't your grandma's tattoo parlor nor is it an entitled brat's medi-spa. This is a place for me and you. And it's not just a place - it's a space. A space for creativity. For inspiration. For healing.
The owner, Justine, made my dream tattoo come true. I'm a walking piece of art. I call it a survival tattoo - it's a symbol of all that I have survived - so I needed someone with compassion.
Justine is a walking heart. She shines from the inside out. We did an intuitive tattoo, meaning I chose a crystal and Justine did a tarot reading with me with her own deck of cards that she hand-painted, btw. I knew I wanted a Phoenix on my shoulder. What happened is beyond my wildest imaginations. We collaborated artistically the entire time.
This is a place you go to get art. The last tattoo I got was by an egocentric guy who gave 2 shits about me. Or my pain threshold. Justine never pushed me beyond what I could tolerate. This is a very special place. If you have a tattoo you've wanted for a while and has deep meaning for you, this is the place.
