About Sara Purr


I am originally from Rochester, NY.
I got into tattooing in 2000 and did a year and a half at a street shop. Realizing that I wasn’t good, and nowhere near ready to work hard enough to learn tattooing properly, I took a few years off, and started up again in 2006.
I have had a crazy time getting my foot in the door in this life, and I humbly thank the few amazing humans who have helped me and been supportive along the way.
Even more, I am thankful for the others who were not supportive and who offered no help, for I was forced to eventually help myself.

I currently live in Seattle, WA and work at the best shop EVER, with truly lovely, kind and talented folks who have become my tattoo family.

I take appointments and walk ins Thursday through Monday at Rabid Hands Tattoo in the Ballard neighborhood.



I also travel for guest spots and conventions frequently, so check that page for my upcoming travel schedule.

I will tattoo pretty much anything, however I most enjoy American and Japanese traditional style tattooing.

I also offer permanent cosmetic eyebrows.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
