Gilda Acosta Tattoos Washington DCGilda has been a part of the Fatty’s Crew since 2003. Gilda was born in Panama and she naturally gravitated towards art at a young age. Her passion for art culminated in her desire to obtain her BFA in Graphic Design from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in the spring of 2003.

It was around that same period that she first became exposed to the art of tattooing, ultimately deciding to commemorate her upcoming graduation with her first piece of body art. After getting her first tattoo, she embarked on a 3-year apprenticeship with friend, teacher and experienced tattoo artist Fatty. Since completing her training in 2006, Gilda has become known for her solid tattoos, her soft touch, her passionate art, and her ability to translate her clients’ dreams into reality. Gilda’s work is influenced by humor, music, themes of gender and sexuality, dreams and the subconscious, spirituality and the occult.

Gilda can be found at Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings in Dupont Circle on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. If you would like to contact Gilda, email her at:
