Beyond excited to be featuring our favorite travelling tattoo-artist/ forest fairy this month, @chiararaitattooing 🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔 Recognize her style? 🧚‍♀️✨Chiara's fairy dust can be found at Chickpea on the regular. Some on her art permanently hangs on our walls & decorates our chalkboards. Plus her magical ways are forever seeped into both the truck and restaurant from the days she use to spread the Chickpeace with us ✌🏽💚💚 Be sure to visit the restaurant this month!  Chiara's art is mesmerizing and celebrates the sacredness of our planet.🦋🌲🌳🌻 We also highly recommend contacting her directly for equally stunning tattoos 🤩
