About

In 2020 owner Kristel Oreto decided to open a small private tattoo studio after working and living in the East Kensington neighborhood of Philly for over 10 years. Kristel has been tattooing since 2000,  Proud Mother of a Queer son and Trans son, and as a women in a male based industry she knew she wanted to create a different type of space for artists and clients.  With the Goal of Opening a Safe Space for All to get tattooed and Women, Non-Binary and Trans Tattooers to work and evolve. The space is filled with art, oddities and antiques from Local Philly artists, oddity shops and antique stores. Wanting clients to feel as comfortable as possible at their session, the studio provides access to a full kitchen to both clients and staff stocked with snacks and so much stuff to look at on the walls you actually want to put your phone down and admire the art.

Thank you to Kristel Oreto and her staff at Now and Forever Tattoo Collective for curating our tattoo art gallery and being our community partners for The Tattooed Lady.
