My name is Anali (pronounced Anna Lee) which is actually my moms name backwards (Ilana). So you can see that I was born into a very creative family! I'm 22 years old and I live in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. I currently own my own private tattooing studio: Never More. located in Harrisburg.
Growing up, I always felt drawn to art. As cliche as it may seem; I always knew I had to be an artist. Drawing and painting with my father from the time I could hold a pencil. As a kid, I would always come up with different fields that I wanted to work in: Fashion Design, Interior Design, Photography, Painting, Architecture; but nothing felt quite like the right fit. When I was 15 I got my first tattoo. It was an instant attraction. I was captivated. The feeling of getting a tattoo, some thing so personal and so permanent, made me feel confident and beautiful. I wanted to be able to spread that feeling around. I wanted to give people the joy of artwork that they could wear.
I started an apprenticeship when I turned 18. Since then I have lived and tattooed in New York, Connecticut, California, and now Pennsylvania. I have had the rare pleasure of working alongside artists who have taught me so many things to help me grow and progress. Without them I wouldn't be where I am.
Tattooing has taught me so much and I am still learning so much everyday. But I can say that as of right now I do love to do realism tattoos as well as stippling or any complex line tattoos such as lace, henna, geometric and mandala styles. Because I have such a love for both styles I have started to combine them. The contrast between realism's soft and tangible appeal, alongside a bold design is something very powerful..
I believe that getting a tattoo should be an experience and not a transaction. I like to get to know my clients a bit. Try and fit their tattoo; not only to flow with and compliment their body shape, but to fit their personalities. I think it's important for your tattoos to showcase who you are.
I am always looking for a new, challenging, exciting tattoo to work on so if you are interested in working with me please contact me by filling out an application form on the cover page :)
" Tattoos are a right of passage. They are a marker of bravery, of maturity, of cultural acceptance. The tattoo represents not only a willingness to accept pain - to endure it- but a need to actively embrace it. Because life is painful, beautiful but painful "
