I always love stopping by Port 13 Tattoo to take pictures of artist Sierra Sunshine at work. She is really incredible at her job and it’s obvious that she loves it so much. There’s nothing better than spending time with insanely talented people. Sierra can literally make anything happen and it’s really fun to watch. Capturing content photography in Norfolk is always great too, the city is one of my favorites and Port 13 is an awesome place to be.
I’ve been to the studio a few times since Covid-19 hit. At Port 13 they pride themselves on being incredibly safe and clean anyway, so I have felt super comfortable there during each visit. The masks add a second layer of protection, and all the employees and clients are wearing them at all times. It feels great to be in there both photographing and getting tattooed… it’s always nice to do things that provide some sense of normalcy.
I love these pictures of Sierra. I’m glad we got a few shots outside to mix it up, since most of her photos take place in the studio. Also, can we take a moment to talk about that sweet puppy? Precious.
I always enjoy my time with her and I’m happy that this content photography session in Norfolk will allow her to have some fresh new pictures to use on her social media. Instagram and Facebook are so important for artists! By having professional photos Sierra will be able to show potential clients that she is serious about visuals, and that’s definitely what you want from a tattoo artist. Be sure to follow her along on IG to see more photos of her work! And if you’re looking for a tattoo artist in the Hampton Roads area I cannot recommend Sierra enough.
