Artists

Sarauna

WILDLIFE / PORTRAITS / FLORAL / CUSTOM DESIGNS

Sarauna immersed herself in the tattoo industry in her early teens and started her first apprenticeship right after graduating high school. Sarauna is very detail-oriented. She loves pin-up girls, fantasy, wildlife, human and animal portraits, flowers, and plants. Sarauna also enjoys coverups because they are always challenging and pretty much have to be custom. “I love custom work! Please ask me to draw for you.”

Adrienne

TRADITIONAL / BLACK & GRAY / POP CULTURE / PERMANENT MAKE-UP

Adrienne grew up around tattoos and body modification. She got her first tattoo at 15. She started piercing right after college and apprenticed to tattoo shortly after. She loves when her clients have exciting new ideas for their body art. Being a tattoo artist in a constantly evolving industry is her life and passion.

Trist’n

PIERCING / MICROBLADING

Trist’n has always been a fan of needles and body modification. She is one of the most sought out body piercers in Montana. Being a mother, she is great working with young children. She truly enjoys delivering an informative, caring, and calm experience to her clients.

Please Welcome Larisa to the Brightside Family!

It is with great pride that we announce the addition of Larisa to the Brightside Body Art family.

Larisa has supported Brightside and our artists since before the launch of our business, patiently awaiting her moment to become a full member of our team.

Larisa previously trained as a body piercer under Tristn’s mentorship. It’s great to have the team back together again. We will be able to offer expanded piercing availability with her on the schedule.

Larisa is also apprenticing as a tattoo artist with Sarauna. We are so grateful and excited to watch her journey to becoming a tattooist.

Grand Opening

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us at our Grand Opening event last Friday the 13th. We were blown away by the showing of support from our community and so proud to finally show our beautiful studio to the public.

We were gifted Guns n’ Roses tickets by Angel from 96.3 The Blaze for this event. She plugged our studio on her station all day and we were honored. Our friends have reached out saying word of mouth is spreading and that would not have been possible without all of you!

Please keep in mind, masks will be required for employees and patrons at the studio to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone.

Sarauna and Adrienne are booked through October at this time. If you are interested in booking a tattoo appointment, please email us at brightsidebodyart@gmail.com. Let us know your requested artists, details of the design, and the size and location of the tattoo.

We are so excited to be a part of Missoula’s art scene and we can’t wait to decorate all of you. Thank you, Missoula.
