New England News: Kristina Bennett is here FULL TIME!
We are beyond thrilled to welcome the newest full time member of our Off the Map Tattoo family, Ms. Kristina Bennett!
Born in Minnesota, Kristina earned a culinary degree in Minneapolis at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Minneapolis. She worked as a chef and later went on to teach the art of cooking as well. While Kristina is a natural chef, she came to discover that tattooing was her true passion. She began tattooing professionally in 2009 and hasn't looked back.
The tattoo industry further influenced her natural gypsy lifestyle, bringing her to work in some of her now favorite places including Puerto Nuevo & Tulum, Mexico, Oregon and San Diego, California. While she now lives on the East coast, she continues to draw tattoo inspiration from the West coast/Southern Cali style she's come to love.
She is well versed in different styles of tattooing but especially enjoys tattooing hand drawn lettering, henna & ethnic inspired tattoos influenced by Indian, Moroccan and Mexican cultures.
Kristina describes her tattooing style as illustrative/neo-traditional but she has a strong interest in doing more black and grey tattoos. When asked who her favorite type of client is she emphasizes that she really just enjoys nice people. When she isn't tattooing or traveling she loves kickin' it in her flip flops with good friends, great food and drinks, and snuggling with her Chi-weanie dog, Chola. Welcome Kristina! We couldn't be happier that your gypsiness landed you on our team in little ol' Easthampton, Massachusetts. KRISTINA IS NOW BOOKING TATTOO APPOINTMENTS AND FREE CONSULTATIONS!
