Final Butterfat Visit

You might have heard that Butterfat Studios Chicago is closing in October (read more at I'm visiting soon for my last guest spot there, taking appointments on September 9, 10, and 11.

As you might imagine, I have lots of mushy feelings about this. After apprenticing under Esther, I helped her open Butterfat in its current spot, and for its first two years she and I were the crew there. A work opportunity for my husband took me to California in 2012, and California became an amazing opportunity for me too, but Butterfat has always been a home to me, filled with people I love.

This won't be my last Chicago visit, but visits will likely be less frequent. To book one of my openings for this last Butterfat guest spot, email I'll be working from my one-off flash, viewable at In your email, please include what piece you want, where it will go on your body, and what days of my trip would work for you. I am NOT taking custom projects in Chicago at this time.

Thank you as always for your interest in and support of my work!
