Hi there! My name is Stacey Sharp and I am proud and delighted to join the crew here at Strega Rose Tattoo Arts starting in February 2024! How exciting!
I've been tattooing since 1992 and moved to Long Island in 1997 to further my career. I've learned a lot from all the artists I've been fortunate enough to work with, and I'm very grateful for all of those opportunities.
I am proficient in many styles, but I really enjoy subject matter that is more fantasy based. Mythos, magic, faeries dragons and other strange beasts, wildlife, nature and animal portraits... I do a lot of custom work and I like things to be a little out of the ordinary. I also do restoration and cover-up work. I am very flexible and try to be as open minded as possible, and I work well with others of that nature. :)
I love art, magical/mystical imagery and symbolism. I will pick your brain and throw ideas at you if I can, which may confuse some people, but hopefully it opens the doorway a bit more towards what is possible so that my clients feel like individuals rather than carbon copies. I won't reproduce someone elses tattoo on you. It's just not right. However, I can use any image or idea for inspiration to make your work one of a kind. I'd rather help you discover your own symbolism - the things that make each lifetime, each soul and each tattoo unique to the wearer. Trust me, it's there if you're willing to look for it. Also, I'm a firm believer that "a picture is worth a thousand words" and that not everything has to be as obvious as a word or a quote. Sometimes it's necessary and sometimes it's not. But either way... Let's dream up something unique just for you!
