Hutch
Melissa
I am the founder, owner, and a tattoo artist at Bloodline Tattoo and have been tattooing since February of 2001. Not beginning to tattoo until I was 30 years old makes me somewhat of a geezer by todays standards. However, I have always been an artist. My earliest memory of drawing was when I was 5 years old. My Dad was a High School Science teacher and I would go to class with him sometimes. His students would have a hard time concentrating because I would be drawing on the chalk board behind him-mostly Godzilla and war/destruction type stuff.

I didn't find my love for tattoos until my mother started her Permanent Make-up business. She was doing some small tattoos as well. After apprenticing under my Mom, I
started getting more tattoos by some of the artists I admired and attended seminars and conventions.

My thirst to get better is never quenched. I truly have a love for art and tattoos, and consider myself very fortunate to be able to do what I love.
Until recently, my role at Bloodline Tattoo has been as "shop girl". Those duties included scheduling appointments, managing marketing, setting up and breaking down trays and generally trying to keep Hutch focused, organized and on schedule. However, I now have a new role, Permanent Make-Up Technician.

I became interested in permanent make-up when I had my eyeliner tattooed by my mother-in-law. It was one of the neatest and most convenient things I had ever done for myself. As a working mother, I loved the fact that it looked like I had my "eyes on" even if I didn't have time to do a full face of make-up.

I received my training from Carol Hutchinson and Ruth Bailey-Dancy, both of whom are trained by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP). I follow the guidelines/ethics set out by the SPCP and am dedicated to providing you with beautiful make-up in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.
