Born and raised in Miami,Cristine Artamendi always had a love for the arts. It wasn’t until she was well into her seasoned years that she made the decision to start her own arts and crafts business. Although this was not the right path for her in the end, the taste of independence and having the flexibility to create everyday was something she desired. In June 2019, she was offered to work at GP studios. Inspired by nature, animals and the desire to instill joy in others, Cristine brings an innocence to her characters through the use of bright colors, linework and dot work. Seeking to empower the connection to your inner child, she integrates these same elements into her tattooing style. She is excited that her journey has brought her into a nurturing environment where she is eager to continue to learn and grow as an artist.
