About the Artist


Katie Montes

Hails from east Tennessee and moved to Hendersonville in 2011.  She has been serving the area for 9 years at one of the highest rated tattoo shops in Western North Carolina, High Caliber Custom Tattoo, and has recently moved to 

Girl and Goblin Tattoos and Oddities in the River Arts District of Asheville.  

Having a bachelors degree of fine art from Maryville College as well as a background in painting and tattooing portraits, permanent cosmetics was a natural progression for her, founding Affinity Permanent Cosmetics.  


 She can be found doing both body art tattoos as well as permanent makeup along side the wonderful crew at Girl and Goblin Tattoos and Oddities.  Katie is known best for her blackn' grey and color realism, though she is capable of capturing all styles in her tattooing.  She also likes to put her own combination of realistic and illustrative elements into every tattoo she does.  Whether it be tattoos, permanent makeup, or even piercing, the gal is good!
