About Eva Phoenix
Eva Phoenix is the ringmaster of this circus. She has been tattooing for many years and she put together Sea Hag Tattoo Parlour as the kind of tattoo shop in which she’d feel good about getting a tattoo.
Over 35 years ago, there weren’t many female tattoo artists, and fewer still have lasted this long. It’s not easy being a lady in a man’s world.
She began tattooing in Houston, Texas in the 80s. That’s the “19” 80s (LAST CENTURY)! She had it hammered into her head that every part of tattooing was important. From making needles to engraving stencils, Eva has lived the history of tattooing.
She cut her teeth on the mean streets of Houston, tattooing the ‘dregs of society’ which were pretty much the only folks getting tattoos back in those days. It’s the reason she has what we refer to as her ‘charm’.
She’s traveled the world working with many of the best artists in the tattoo world. She’s learned a lot from her colleagues and believes that you never stop learning.
Eva is big on the traditions of tattoo while embracing the best new practices; more importantly, she cares about the people who wear her art and wants to be sure that everyone leaves happy. She respects people’s time, ideas, and the permanence of tattoos.
