About

A little bit about Tara: Tattoo Artist and Illustrator, working out of Pleasure in Pain, in Taunton, MA.

Tara is a full time custom artist currently tattooing out of Pleasure in Pain, located in Taunton, Massachusetts. Tara graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Illustration from U-Mass Dartmouth. Going through the illustration program has given her a wealth of knowledge on many different art forms, and how to apply them. 

Tara's journey began with an apprenticeship under the tutelage of Jeff Burt, owner of Pleasure in Pain. She was an apprentice of Jeff's for a little over a year, before he decided she was ready to begin her voyage as a tattoo artist. She has since been tattooing on her own for roughly two years. Tara will tackle any challenge thrown her way in the form tattoos. She seems to have the most fun tattooing imagery that is very illustrative, feminine, neotraditional, and playful.

Work does not end when the shop closes. Tara also takes requests for custom illustrations from clients. She can work with almost any medium, but enjoys acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, marker, and graphite most.

In her free time Tara enjoys spending time with her son and family, eating Pho, and binge watching Game of Thrones.
