About Denise

Hello, I'm Denise de la Cerda, and I have been tattooing professionally for the last 22 years. I started tattooing in 1994, under Anil Gupta at his old Inkline studio on East 5th Street, on the Lower East side of Manhattan
.
All of the tattoos that you see on this website were drawn and tattooed by me.

Since the tattoo fashions are changing again, I am currently working on a new design series for you to look at, choose from, or use as a springboard for your own ideas.

If you like the work on this site, and you would like me to tattoo you, then please make contact, send an email, and let me know what’s on your mind. I’d like to meet you before making the commitment to do your tattoo.

If for you, getting a tattoo is the equal of ordering takeout, then I can not be your tattoo artist.

Let’s do something stunning together. We only get one chance.
