About Liz

Liz VonBorden has been tattooing since early 2015, and has been an artist her entire life. She grew up in Ohio, drawing in charcoal and graphite with a special love for realism and portrait work. After high school she moved to Las Vegas for a short period, before moving to Chicago and attending the Illinois Institute of Art and earning her BFA in Visual Communications. VonBorden worked as a graphic designer, both corporate and freelance, for several years before becoming a tattoo artist. She uses her knowledge of composition and design when planning her tattoos to better suit the individual client’s body. Her love for realism has followed from paper to skin, and continues to grow into its own unique style. If you’re looking for high attention to detail and portrait style realism look no further.
