Bio

Danielle Figueroa formerly Danielle White is the co-owner of Primal Instinct Tattoo with husband Carlos Figueroa. She started her apprenticeship in 2006 in Northern California. She met Carlos at that same shop in 2007. Danielle worked at a few different shops briefly before moving to Arizona to work at Club Tattoo where she stayed for a couple years before moving to Alaska with Carlos in 2011 where they have been ever since.

Danielle learned the struggles of working in a male dominated industry (as many women have) but continues to work to break those barriers as times change. She has learned much from her experiences and takes pride in creating a clean, safe and comfortable environment for her clients and employees. She believes that the overall experience is important and strives to make it an enjoyable one.

Danielle works in various different styles of tattoos and appreciates the freedom her clients give her in creating their special permanent art.

She currently opens her books for about three months at a time. If you are interested in booking an appointment with her you can follow her on Instagram @danietatts and follow her booking instructions.

Excited about a new project, this guitar has a neat story, An Argentinian scientist friend of mine traded me this guitar for some illustrations I drew for him. They were for a paper that was eventual published in nature magazine. The guitar had been painted by him to look like stone because he is a geologist.  The guitar had a short so it no longer played. Upon doing research on the guitar I found that it was a very we'll made guitar for its time. It has the Floyd Rose bridge, and an hss pickup setup.  I'm gonna completely re-wire, re-finish, re-fret and replace the pickups.  I'll keep posting picture of the project as it evolves. #guitarproject

Ezekiel 36:26New International Version (NIV)
I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
The gal wanted me to tattoo this idea on her because this is her favorite scripture. I really dig that she had an original idea instead of just getting the writing. #hearttattoo #heartofstonetattoo
