Meet our Apprentices

Micaela Garza

My name is Micaela, I am 20 years old and have lived in Abilene for all of it. I have been apprenticing here at Sacred Art for almost a year. I am taking a break from being an art major in college to pursue my career in tattooing. I have come to love to do several different styles from basic line work to bright colorful cartoon pieces.
