kristy-nadine-tattoo-artist-at-buju-tattoo-in-san-diegoMy Name is Kristy Nadine and I’ve been tattooing for nearly eight years. I enjoy tattooing very much as well as painting and drawing. My favorite things to tattoo are flowers, animals, bugs, witchcraft and occult related things as well as tattoos of mystical women. Ive been drawing since i could hold a pencil. Born and raised in Colorado, I used to get kicked out of class for drawing instead of taking notes. I started an apprenticeship in Lakewood Colorado and soon after moved to Austin Texas to begin my tattooing career. After about three years i moved home to Colorado to tattoo another few years before moving to San Diego specifically to work with the rad women and guy at Buju Tattoo. Buju Tattoo has been a wonderful place to work and i love the people i work with.

Some other things I enjoy are music, tea, riding bikes, driving motorcycles, building things, yoga, gardening, raising chickens, foraging, mushroom hunting, rockhounding, hiking, camping, archery and much more. Although, I enjoy tattooing very much I also make jewelry through metal smithing and work with a lapidary to form stones. Ive been making jewelry for almost 3 years now and it had been wonderful expressing art through this medium as well.
