Talis Fortuna Tattoo Studio Is Eclectic And Professional

By S. Mathur

Talis Fortuna is an eclectic tattoo studio with artists who offer electric and hand poked tattoos. They have over 20 years of experience between them. Located in the heart of the Baca Railyard in Santa Fe, NM, the space is clean, eclectic, comfortable and cozy. Owner and tattoo artist Crow B. Rising is a professional and her advice to new customers is to trust their artist.

"Don't be an expert," she said. "Go into this process with an open mind and trust the person you are wanting to be tattooed by. They are (hopefully) the professional and will have ideas to make the tattoo you want to be the best possible version of your vision."

Crow B Rising is originally from the high desert of Northern Nevada, and began tattooing in 1998. After moving to Santa Fe, she did an apprenticeship with Mark Vigil of Four Star Tattoo, and opened Talis Fortuna in 2013.

"I love everything about my job," she said. "I get to create things for people that they will have for the rest of their lives, it is a huge gift to be able to offer that. I love my varied clientele. I get to meet people from all over the world and share a special moment with them."

Tattoo artist Bailey Hunter Robinson focuses on traditional American tattooing. He worked in New York City for 12 years, with many legendary tattoo artists. Artist Jason Metal was one of the original owners of the studio and still visits occasionally, though he now works in Seattle. The artists' work can be seen on the Instagram page and on the studio website. They get high marks for creativity and professionalism from clients.

All clients must make an appointment, and they can do so via email. This allows the artists to give each client their full attention and the best possible experience. Talis Fortuna was one of the studios that made the Best Tattoo Shop listing for 2017 in the Santa Fe Reporter's Reader's' Choice awards.

Crow B. Rising also has some advice for aftercare, since the healing process is important.

"Follow your tattooers instructions, please do not take the advice of your cousin's boyfriend's auntie," she said. "The internet can be a dangerous place for "how to-s" So please just listen to the aftercare instructions your tattooer gives you. You have just once chance to heal your tattoo, don't mess it up."
