As a native to the Mankato area, Kelly Bunde spent the first part of her career as a professional graphic designer. Her skills as an illustrator translated well into her work as a professional tattooer, drawing custom pieces for each client.
Kelly started tattooing in 2010, and was drawn towards detailed, bold color work. Her style has since been transformed into large scale patterns, drawing from mandala, henna, and sacred geometry sources to create a style of her own. Aside from her speciality work she loves to tattoo anyone and everyone, well known for being able to take any idea and customize it for the client.
