Dedicating her time to learning the craft of tattooing since September 2017, Lauren is the most recent graduate to finish her apprenticeship under Justina Kervel as of July 2018. Lauren is now accepting clients for small-medium hand-poked and machine tattoos!

Lauren Carr is an Emily Carr graduate whose vivid, lyrical style of art reflects her background in illustration. She finds artistic inspiration everywhere, but her first love as an artist has always been the beauty and mystery of sea life and other ocean themes. Lauren has long sought a position as a tattoo artist, and is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to tattoo in the inspiring and supportive atmosphere of Liquid Amber. A long-time freelancer in the Vancouver visual art community, Lauren has worked with many Vancouver musicians. She is an avid cycler, who is always convinced that the right number of bikes is one more than she currently has.

Some artists that Lauren considers to be important influences on her include James Jean, Gary Baseman, Shaun Tan, and Victo Ngai.

At this time, Lauren’s books are closed. If you wish to be notified when Lauren’s books open again, please sign up to her mailing list. Lauren’s books will likely open at the end of April for appointments in June - August.

Lauren is $140/hr plus gst
