Tiffanie Cannon

My name is Tiffanie Cannon, my passion for art started at the very early age of 7 years old and from then I have known that Body Art was my path, I have been in this industry for 15 years and have grown into a successful artist. I started on my own and then was able to land an apprenticeship at Acme Tattoo under the late Great Donald Nolan. He was the grandfather of the tattoo industry and worked with popular names like Sailor Jerry and Oliver Peck. After receiving my body art license I worked at two other renowned shops soaking up the differences in atmosphere and techniques other artists use. Post- COVID, I am now currently joining a shop in North St. Paul that was formerly Acme Tattoo called Gabriel’s Fallen Angel Tattoo studio. My goals are to take what I’ve learned over the years and educate. Once you learn the basics it’s like flying and you will find your own way.
