My name is Elizabeth Avila, but people know me by Betty. I am a Chicago native from the south side of Chicago. Raised by the Mexican culture, the local arts and music influenced me to draw. I participated in art projects and music activities from grade school to college. I met Nando about 5 years ago and he had a rare opportunity which I jumped to accept. Unfamiliar to the tattoo world and also being a woman, I had to work extra hard. Through my apprenticeship under him, I grew to love this art form and fell deeper in love with skin art. I've been tattooing professionally for 3 years now. I experiment with many forms of art to create something amazing.
