Anita Darkling was born and raised in five different suburbs across North America. In pursuit of a career in art, she moved to San Francisco and earned her BFA at the Academy of Art University.

Anita specializes in fine line and single-needle tattoos, with a focus on the mysterious and mystical side of nature.

Though she also does soft shading, Anita’s signature shading style uses scratchy, overlapping, fine lines to create a unique, hand-drawn look.
