Tashina specialises in a more traditional form of tattooing.
Hand poke tattooing is created by poking the ink into the skin using a needle, it comes from the ancient style of tattooing and is without the use of a machine. The style is similar to Japanese Tebori but tends to be much more gentle to the skin, almost painless and has a very fast healing time. Hand poked tattooing also works well for difficult to tattoo areas such as palms, fingers and ears. She is influenced mainly by tribal styles, Tibetan imagery and floral.
