Yvonne Koprnicky


Yvonne Koprnicky 

Born and raised in Airdrie, Alberta, Yvonne has been creating art her entire life. She graduated from high school in 2007 with artistic distinction, and finished a Bachelor’s Degree at Alberta College of Art and Design in 2012. Shortly after graduation Yvonne began tattooing. Her work has been influenced by her mentorship under Trevor Jameus, and her love for painterly and realistic styles of art. Her style dabbles in both realism and watercolor tattooing. She often mixes both styles to create an original piece of art that has both her artistic style and an interesting flow on the body. In early 2016 Yvonne received her certification in cosmetic tattooing. Her love for realism, strong attention to detail, and eye for symmetry led her to a form of tattooing that can help people on a very personal level. She specializes in micro-bladed and single needle tattooed eyebrows that are semi-permanent, lasting 1-2 years. The hair stroke technique creates a very soft and realistic end result. “For me, choosing a career in art has been choosing a career of constant growth. I am forever grateful for everyone who has been tattooed by me and for anyone who chooses to be tattooed by me in the future! Thank you to all my clients and everyone who has helped and mentored me along the way!” -Yvonne
