When she was 18, Alysia started as an apprentice at a tattooshop where she became an allround tattoo artist. She quickly picked up the art of tattooing, after which she was allowed to take customers. She decided to take a break after two years to discover her own tattoo style and to build up her portfolio.
In the meantime, she decided that she wanted to continue on her own and to open her own tattooshop. She started looking for an appropriate location and quickly got the chance to open the first ever tattooshop in Diemen, the Netherlands, which is just outside of Amsterdam.
