Ellen’s Bio

Ellen is from Dayton Ohio and has been obsessed with the arts at a very young age. As a teenager, she was interested in theater, choir, and debate but her true love has always been visual art.

In 2013 Ellen moved to Richmond, Virginia where she received a degree in illustration at VCU. While she was in Richmond, Ellen discovered her love for tattoos and tattooing and was able to land a tattoo apprenticeship with a local shop. She has since moved to the DC area and found a new home with the Fatty’s crew!

Ellen is a friendly, present, grounded people-person who is dedicated to expressing her clients vision through body art. She particularly enjoys to tattoo blackwork, black and grey, and illustrative styles.

Ellen can be found at our Dupont Circle location Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and our Silver Spring Location on Sunday from 1-8pm. If you would like to contact Ellen, call the shop during operating hours or email her: ellen@fattystattoos.com
