WHERE WE CAME FROM
Welcome to Forever Tattooed! My name is Maria Zelaya the muse to our art focus, and the source of original energy at Forever Tattooed. I live for traveling, changing lives through art, and scalp micropigentation. I really enjoy helping people overcome obstacles and reach their full potential in life.
As a child, I grew up in a very diverse environment, boogie boarding at the beach, eating Mexican and Asian foods daily, meeting adversity frequently and enduring life along the border of California and Mexico. At a very early age I knew that there was a passion burning inside me that would create a positive change somehow in this world, not just for me but for the atypical, open minded, and driven.
Over the last 20 years of living in the Pacific NorthWest, I’ve watched my little art deprived town blossom into an art filled city. Forever Tattoo is proud to be apart off the upbringing of that culture. My vision has been to make one of a kind art, unique clothing, and high-quality services available to our community.
Here at Forever Tattooed you can feel art in your soul and take it home forever. We have been providing custom pinup, rockabilly, hot rod, low-rider, and tattoo inspired art, apparel, and accessories at our store front with Forever Tattoo and Piercing since 2012. Forever Tattooed is located within Forever Tattoo and Piercing where high-quality, custom, clinical, and cosmetic ink are provided by our amazingly inspirational artists as well. Forever Tattoo is a family owned and operated, novel multicultural art and apparel hub. Forever Tattoo is family friendly and therapeutic to the soul.
In 2016, we developed an online store and our art gallery called Forever Tattooed. The art is made by very talented award winning artists that enjoy life in the Pacific Northwest! Our artists are highly productive and experienced in multiple mediums, frequently attending seminars, and conventions like, The Body Art Expo, and Paradise Tattoo Gathering. Forever Tattoo has a passionate team of artists that are enthusiastic about helping the community though art. We have raised over 500 Christmas gifts for Bridge The Gap Community Outreach Program for foster children. Yearly we attend the Relay For Life event, providing sharpie tattoos to help spread cancer awareness. We also continuously donate art to hospitals and charity auctions.
Forever Tattoo empowers people to feel happy about expressing themselves though art whether its custom, alternative, or urban lifestyles. We provide an environment that embraces diversity and an adventurous art filled culture. We promote art expression, art therapy, and inspirational art to help restore mental health, closure, individuality, and confidence. People often feel comfortable with our charismatic team at Forever Tattoo, and become regular clients that fell like family.
