Kandace was born in Brooklyn, New York but moved to Atlanta around the age of 5 or 6. She graduated high school a year early in order for her to start her apprenticeship at City of Ink. Kandace began her apprenticeship in 2011, at only age 17, and did her very first tattoo (which happened to be on herself) on her 18th birthday. It was very hard for her to finish her apprenticeship but finally after two years, she did. Kandace specializes in geometric and henna/mehndi inspired ornamental tattoos.
Growing up in a Muslim household, henna was always a part of her life and she now incorporates it in her work. Kandace works best with open minded clients who are familiar with her style. She usually draws her designs in advance but enjoys sitting with her clients and involving them in the designing process and occasionally draws directly on them.
Outside of tattooing, Kandace enjoys painting, kickboxing, reading tarot, and playing guitar.
