For almost a decade, Savanna has done a wide range of styles, but she enjoys black and gray and color realism.  Designs ranging from geometric patterns, animals, pin up portraits, realistic floral prints and nature scenes. She is known for having a good eye for fine detail and loves a good challenge including cover ups and tattoo overhauls.

Savanna has been creative from a young age. Her love for making art started when she was 15 years old. She knew she wanted to dedicate herself professionally to what she enjoys most. By the fresh age of 18 she entered into the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts located in Portland, OR. She graduated in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in fine arts and crafts, specializing in drawing and painting. Some of her own oil paintings are on display in her studio.​

Continuing her education, she was accepted into the Oregon School of Tattoo Arts, where she studied under the "Legendary Rio Degenero." There she discovered her passion, more than drawing and painting, but for the art of tattooing. Tattooing combined her love of people, counterculture, and art.  She started her career as a tattoo artist 9 years ago at Back40Tattoo studio in Molalla Oregon. Back40Tattoo is woman owned and operated shop. Her fellow artists have become like close family to her. After meeting her wife and moving to McMinnville she decided it was time to find a shop close to home.  She instantly connected with the owner and crew at the Apollo Art Cooperative. Setting up shop in the beautiful downtown McMinnville location was a dream come true for her and her family. Savy is excited to start this new chapter in tattooing with fresh faces and ideas. She continues to impress us with her custom designs, skill and passion for body art.
