Tattoos by Shain

My name is Shain Allen and I began tattooing at the ripe age of 18 years old. I began my journey as an apprentice just 2 weeks after turning 16 in Reno, NV making tattooing the first and only job I’ve ever had meaning this is truly the back bone of my life. I had dreamt of being a tattoo artist since just 8 years old and it is a dream I never let die. After turning 18 and beginning my career I moved to Seattle, WA in pursuit of a life that I could be my most authentic self. Shortly after moving to Seattle I joined the team here at Laughing Buddha. With heavy influences from the art nouveau era with a fantastical surrealist twist – I’ve adopted an ethereal and “creepy” aesthetic.

I have in place a 3 hour minimum at 200 an hour meaning you must book a 3 hour session or be willing to pay the difference if your tattoo (tattoos) take less than 3 hours. You may book a consultation between the hours of 11:00am and 12:30pm.
