From a very early age, Hillary knew she wanted to perform and make people happy. Like all true artists, Hillary’s passion burns brightly in every aspect of her life. From drawing and painting to cosmetology and even interior design, she has embraced countless outlets for her creative energy. For Hillary, tattooing is not just a business – it is a lifestyle and the pinnacle of a creative journey that spans an entire lifetime.
For 5 incredible years, Hillary entertained thousands of guests from all over the world as Snow White at the world famous Disneyland. Over her Disney career, she held court with celebrities, foreign dignitaries, and took part in several special events for television. While Hillary garnered awards and accolades from her fellow Cast Members (including Face Character of the Year in 2001), her most favorite memory is bringing the magic of Snow White to the young patients at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) during Christmas time.
Hillary has always sought to nurture her artistic skills across a broad spectrum. She graduated with honors from the prestigious Paul Mitchell School for Cosmetology and began her tattooing career with a traditional apprenticeship in 2006.
Her talents were quickly recognized by her peers and media attention soon followed. Hillary has appeared in numerous magazines, newspapers as well as television programs. In 2013, Dr. Pepper featured Hillary alongside Pitbull in their TV “One of a Kind” ad campaign, and since 2016 has appeared on Paramount’ “Ink Master” and “Ink Master: Redemption.”
Hillary has committed herself to expanding not just her skills but who she’s able to reach and help with her craft. She was recently trained by Long Beach Memorial Hospital surgeons in providing reconstructive cosmetic tattooing for breast cancer survivors, which she considers one of the crowning achievements in her career so far.
Hillary has always embraced and celebrated diversity and she honors every human being no matter their race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. For the last several years, Hillary has proudly rallied, fundraised and donated tattoos and her voice as a performer during OC Pride.
In addition to her passion for tattooing, Hillary’s music interests have led to a long and successful run as a jazz singer at Velvet Lounge.
Over the years, Hillary has welcomed clients from across the Globe , including many celebrities such as Phil Varone, Kehlani and Paris Jackson.
