Born and raised in Vancouver, Mirella has been Tattooing for over 25 years.
Wanting to pursue a career in art, tattooing was the furthest thing from her mind. However, Mirella began a 2 year apprenticeship in the art of tattooing 6 months before graduating from High School. Looking back, she is so grateful that she had fallen into this art form; she says “working on human canvass has been very rewarding.”
Directly from her apprenticeship Mirella opened her studio in Vancouver, British Columbia becoming the 1st female artist to own her own Tattoo studio in Canada.
Although not expected to survive in the male dominated world of Tattooing she has not only proven to be a strong artistic talent but also a smart business woman in an ever changing industry.
Mirella specializes in fine line, black and grey style art work, but also enjoys the bold and colorful, traditional, and classic tattoos. Her studio has a vast selection of designs to choose from or you can bring in your own drawing.
Custom design tattoos are by far the biggest portion of her business and is what she enjoys the most. It’s all about the passion that people have for art work and wanting to display it on their body. Every picture tells a story.
The studios new location is 6672 East Hastings Street, Burnaby.
