“I was scared of getting a tattoo I didn’t like. Slate helped me develop confidence in my creative direction and connected me to an artist who worked with me in a true collaboration.

I loved my tattoo the second it was finished. Every time I look at it, it reminds me of a part of my life when I fell in love with the energy and culture around me.”

— Priya, Slate Customer
