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 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.

Please submit your tattoo idea via the form link below. She will be reviewing tattoo ideas to schedule from now until the end of Oct.

PLEASE NOTE: We will only be responding if Lauren is interested in working on your tattoo idea. This doesn’t mean your idea isn’t awesome, just that she does not feel that she is a suitable artist for this idea. If you don’t hear from us by June 30 and you would like us to see if we have a suitable artist available, please call or email the shop and we can send your form to someone else.

If you are not available to be tattooed before Nov 1, feel free to subscribe to Lauren’s mailing list for the next round!

Lauren is $160/hr plus gst
