Mira Mariah is a Brooklyn-based former fashion designer turned renowned tattoo artist. You might already know her from the name of her Instagram handle/tattoo shop, girlknewyork. The visual artist has, in addition to working with famous celebrity clientele like Ariana Grande, Ilana Glazer, and Pete Davidson, inspired a new generation of tattoo artists with her modern feminist designs. Mira left her job as an assistant fashion designer in 2014 and soon began a tattoo apprenticeship she discovered from a Craigslist ad.

She focuses primarily on tattooing femme images and is highly sought after for her skills.
