Erica Flannes grew up in the woods of Mississippi among deer, insects, and birds. Her interest in art and art history led her to attend the Rhode Island School of Design. At RISD, She majored in illustration, and during her free time created puppets and puppet shows by hand. After college, she traveled extensively around Europe and Africa, soaking up as much of the world as she could.
In 2005, Erica began her tattoo apprenticeship in Mississippi. She began tattooing full-time in 2007. Since then, she has spent time working at Eye Candy Tattoo in New Orleans and traveling to tattoo conventions around the world. Erica then joined the Red Rocket crew in NYC, and has been creating high-quality tattoos for her clients ever since. In her own words,
“I enjoy most all tattoo styles and types, but my favorite subjects to tattoo are probably the more whimsical and elegant… and, for a lack of a better word, “girly”… I’ll never turn away a request for a lovely lady head, or a mermaid, or a fuzzy critter or bug!”
