Dot Lightning
Tattoo Artist


Hi, I'm Dot Lightning

I’m originally from Oklahoma near the Cheyenne tribal reservation. Art has always been a major part of my life largely due to the generations of Native American artists I descended from and the various mediums they worked with: painters, bead workers, jewelers, storytellers, and many others. I’ve dabbled here and there with different artforms to figure out where I fit in, and it was during my time in the US Navy that I found my place as a tattoo artist. 

I enjoy creating American Traditional style tattoos, bold lines and bright color that will last a lifetime. However, lately I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons by doing fine line black work tattoos. I’m open for either!

The thing I love most about tattooing is meeting people from all walks of life and sharing a moment no matter how small or big the tattoo is.
