Katy AD got her start in tattooing in 2016 on the other side of the Delaware river in Philadelphia. By 2018 she dedicated herself to tattooing full-time and joined the 12 oz. Studios family in the summer of 2020. Katy’s apprenticeship was focused on an American traditional style of tattooing which she uses to create colorful kawaii, video game, and anime themed tattoos. She’s also down with more extreme styles of tattooing thanks to her background touring with heavy metal and punk bands. Katy is also a published member of the international Tattoo Punks art collective.
