In any given landscape there are moments, which tell a story about a place and the people that dwell there. In a metropolis or a ghost town these moments of loneliness and abandonment that can be looked over or forgotten. It is in these spaces that there is an opportunity to see and understand the world in a different way. By exploring, collecting and photographing the world as an archaeologist or detective gives intensity to the seemingly banal and ordinary.
Robyn Emlen has been tattooing since 2006, and loves what she does! She specializes in bold, colorful designs with a new school and illustrative twist. Snuggling cats and wrangling squirrels are a favorite pastime, so it only makes sense that the majority of her subject matter is critters and animals. If you're not in the mood for a stupid cute critter tattoo, she also specializes in large scale Asian work. She concentrates on how to make the whole design flow and fit on the body to accentuate the curves and muscle structure of the client. When Robyn is not tattooing or painting, she saves the world one kitten at a time with the power of awesome. Find her most recent work on Instagram.
Tattooing for 5+ years, I love doing floral work along with intricate linework, geometric variations, and any type of skull. I will never have enough mandalas. I enjoy working with negative line value and dotwork/stipple style shading. I also do a lot of watercolor style tattoos with an appropriate amount of black ink to keep them balanced.
Lines, Lines, Dots and more Lines! The clean crisp line has become an obsession for me. Twenty two years of " striving for the better" has turned me into a craftsman of design. During this time I have come to truly enjoy geometric form and layering of patterns. Working gradients of black into Botanical and Scientific illustration highlights my love of nature. If you have an idea that fits the described above I would love to work with you.
I love the color orange in any shade. I eat green tomatoes without frying them and enjoy jumping on my kid's trampoline. I mumble while I tattoo, that is if I'm not bursting into song ( I heart Nu Shooz radio, thank you Pandora ). I like to pet the soft parts in between my cat's toes, even though I put my life at risk when I do so. I am an amateur paddle boarder and a rad random percussionist. I am tremendously happy and fortunate to be part of the Two Birds family. I am celebrating my 9th year as a tattoo artist with the past 7 years here at Two Birds Tattoo.
