Emily Grant - Tattoo Artist
Emily Anne grew up envisioning herself as a comic book artist, drawn to the stylized imagery and the room for ingenuity. However, since 2002, she has gotten the opportunity to immortalize her creations daily through her tattoo artistry. Emily seamlessly blends her ideas and her original nature with clients, working to create a custom piece of lifelong artwork.
Emily's reliability, extensive experience, and an innovative constitution led her to Studio City Tattoo about three years ago. Emily enjoys tattooing any styles but particularly loves bringing her characteristic illustrative techniques to life. Musician, dog mom, gamer, illustrator, designer, and an adroit tattooist with a quick wit and an infectious laugh - Emily is a true Swiss Army Knife of an artist.
“Emily Anne from the streets of Hollywood fought her way up the tattooist ladder in a time when there were few female tattooists. Emily, helping pave the way for future ladies of ink is a real gem of our industry here in Hollywood. She breaks the barriers with pure bad@$$ talent”
Got my first tat done by Emily! She's an amazing artist and she seriously has the lightest hand! She's cool too! I was so nervous since it was my first time but Emily is the perfect artist for that gateway tattoo...the experience was pretty much painless! I asked for a small flower tattoo which only took 20 minutes, with very faint stinging here and there but that was it. The healing process was fast and the aftercare was really easy too. I didn't experience any scabbing or itching and there were times that I actually forgot that I had gotten a tattoo on my back! They take walk-ins for both tattoos and piercings though I would recommend getting an appointment. They can get pretty busy especially during the weekends! Nice and chill staff +++++
Got my first tattoo here with Emily Grant! It was an easy tattoo - a simple black one from an existing logo of The Cure. BUT... your first tattoo should always be with a great artist and shop. Emily was super personable and comforting through the entire process. She had great patience especially when I was debating between sizes. Since the tattoo is all black and required great line work, I was 300% satisfied with the work. I think the most important part about getting a tattoo is being comfortable, and Emily gave just that. The shop is cozy and had great music. From someone who's new to this tattoo world, I highly recommend coming here as a first timer. I made an appointment for 10pm, so I had no issues with parking. Metered street park is available and free after 8pm. Thank you, Emily!

Emily is a wonderful artist! I came here for a cover up tattoo on my ankle, I was ridiculously nervous on how it would turn out (due to my not so great past experiences with another tattoo shop). I couldn't be any happier with the end result! Emily was impeccable I will forever recommend her to anyone I know who wishes to get a tattoo, her overall attitude and demeanor is amazing, so chill and understanding. She drew up a concept and was able to take everything I wanted out of the pictures I sent as examples. She even tweaked it a couple times for me when I came back in to get the tattoo, she was very understanding and wanted me to absolutely love the work of art she was going to put on me! She made friendly conversation while doing the tattoo which made the 2 hour process seem short and sweet, loved spending my night with her and I am absolutely enthralled with my new and improved tattoo!! Thank you so much Emily! Overall great experience here! Highly recommend!!
Obviously my tattoo is not healed yet but I didn't want to forget to review this amazing place and give Emily the well deserved credit for her awesome artwork!
