Channy @chanterelleink has been an artist in the tattooing industry since 2015.

A Newfoundland native, she spent the first seven years of her life captivated by nature's beauty and the enchanting microcosms of creatures and bugs. Fond childhood memories involve watching and drawing comic book heroes, fishing with her dad, picking bugs in the rain for bare, exploring the forest trails surrounding her home and enjoying scary movies and cartoons with her older brother. 

Throughout her tattooing journey, Channy has explored diverse styles but finds inspiration primarily in realism, surrealism, neotrad, and art nouveau. Her art reflects a unique perspective on nature's micro world, featuring forest animals and woodland entities. She also enjoys tattooing female faces and eyes, creating a distinct and meaningful form of artistic expression through the captivating exploration of intricate details and emotional expressions.
