Subdermal pigment design and installation specialist

The work and life of San Leandro-based artist Amy Zager has been known to push boundaries.

Her approach blends a traditional "real media" approach to digital design and painterly tattoos.

Currently paused scheduling new work through the end of 2022, but my consultation form is always up! Make sure you're following me on instagram at @painterlyfiend for the most current updates on scheduling, travel spots, and last minute availability. Turn on notifications to my page and say hi in the comments so future posts will be more visible in your feed.

Unfortunately at this point I can't reply to every single inquiry, but I keep everything on file and will reach out if I can work your project into my books! 
I do prioritize concepts from my wanna-dos (they live in the highlights on my instagram profile) See if there's anything that sparks your inspiration, or let's use it as launch point for something new.

Check out my new FAQ page for more info.

We are continuing to tattoo through Pandemic Life, please make sure you're checking the public health recommendations for the county in which we'll be working together for vaccination, masking, and distancing/capacity reccomendations. Much of the country has lowered the indoor mandate for vaccinated individuals, but I'm always happy to match my clients comfort regardless of their reasoning. 

New clients, please check out my spiffy new consultation form here.
