Karla Yvette comes from a family of artists — painters, actors, and photographers. At eighteen she began a formal apprenticeship in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has been tattooing full-time since 2005. While she is enthusiastic about every style of tattooing, she is particularly excited about pieces that combine her love of art and science. Karla is a nerd through and through, and is overly fond of natural oddities, baby sloths and aliens who travel through time in blue police boxes. She is still waiting for her acceptance letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
