Crow B Rising hails from the high desert of Northern Nevada. She began her love affair with tattooing in 1998 when she first learned how to hand-poke tattoo. Years later she moved to Santa Fe and began a traditional apprenticeship with Mark Vigil of Four Star Tattoo. In 2013, with the desire to offer a different tattoo experience, Talis Fortuna was born. She is now the sole owner of the shop. See below for examples of Crow's Electric Tattoo and Hand Poked Tattoo work.
Jason Metka was born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio. In 2005 he began tattooing and four years later in 2009 started his own shop, American Anchor Tattoo. In the summer of 2011 he came to Santa Fe to guest spot at Four Star Tattoo and fell in love with Northern New Mexico. Upon returning to Cincinnati, he sold his shop and moved out west. He spent the next year and a half tattooing at Four Star until opening Talis Fortuna in 2013. Jason is now tattooing full time at Slave to the Needle in Seattle, Washington. He periodically returns to Santa Fe to tattoo.
