Drawing inspiration from traditional and neo-traditional tattoo styles, Paige Hershey’s work incorporates bright colors and bold lines. Her collages are frequently designed digitally, printed, and then layered with oils, watercolors, ink, and colored pencils. Her senior thesis project centers on nature and the cycle of life, incorporating digital collages that have been enhanced three-dimensionally. During her time at PCA&D, Hershey completed an internship at 717 Tattoo and worked part-time as a cake decorator, where she first began to explore adding a three-dimensional element to her work. Following graduation, Hershey plans to become a professional tattoo artist.
