About

Mallory Swinchock owns and operates Merkaba Tattoo, a private tattoo studio in Santa Barbara, CA. She has a Bachelors degree in Fine Art from UCSB with an emphasis in painting. Her tattoo work is inspired by both nature and the physical form it is applied to. Mallory works by appointment only and has a minimum of two hours per tattoo. She is currently booked out several months in advance. Due to time constraints Mallory does not do in person consultations and can not take on all projects. Priority is given to those who offer the most creative freedom. Projects she will not do include cover-ups, add on to other artists work and lettering. If her books are closed she sometimes will offer projects on her instagram (malloryswin_art) and in the lifestyle page. Please fill out the contact form for inquires.
