Crow B Rising hails from the high desert of Northern Nevada. She began her love affair with tattooing in 1998 when she first learned how to tattoo by hand (without electricity) in the White Mountains of Arizona. In the winter of 2004 she moved to Santa Fe not knowing it was here she would further her passion for tattooing. A year later she began her traditional apprenticeship with Mark Vigil at Four Star Tattoo. Nearly 5 years later she branched out on her own, inspired to create a more intimate experience for her growing clientele, and began tattooing from a private studio. After a year long hiatus in Europe where she tattooed in England, Croatia, Denmark, Switzerland and Italy, Crow has returned to Santa Fe where she is honored to open the private tattoo studio Talis Fortuna with partner Jason Metka.
