Sarah Hlavaty

Tattoos and Fine Art

Austin, TX

Welcome!  I'm Sarah, a tattoo artist in Austin, TX.  I enjoy creating custom pieces, and apply fine art and graphic design techniques to my pieces.  I occasionally travel out for guest spots, which I update on here and my social media.  Take some time to browse through my portfolio and available art pieces.  If anything catches your eye, send me an e-mail!

In early 2019, I left my first studio of seven years to travel out and guest spot at other high quality studios.  I just opened my own private studio, Smoking Dragon's Tattoo Studio, located off the Lakeline/183 North area of Austin.


Check out my portfolio and available concepts, and be sure to follow what I'm up to on Instagram!



I was born and raised in Texas; after graduating high school, I moved to Arizona to study Graphic Design & Animation.  I've been an artist since I was first introduced to "Beavis and Butthead" at the early age of four, sparking my desire to create and share that joy with others.  Through the years, I've adopted techniques that have helped my talent evolve tremendously.

I started my tattoo apprenticeship in 2012 at In The Skin in Victoria, TX.  In 2019, I left my first tattoo home to meet new friends and explore different places.  I landed at Shaman Modifications in Austin for a couple years, then ventured to a private studio at Deep Well Tattoo where I'm currently a residential artist!  I plan to continue guesting at high quality studios, and look forward to meeting all of you along the way!

I'm experienced in various mediums and styles that carry over into my tattooing techniques.  I love to create intricate and flowing images where realism and neo-traditional meet.  I accomplish this with bold and fine line work, contrasting tones, shading styles, and details that give a dynamic flow to my designs.  My aim is to create something that will stay distinguished and defined as it ages with you through the years (so no miniature tattoos!).

I work by appointment only (NO WALK-INS) and book out several weeks in advance.  Check out my FAQs and Intro To Tattoos for info on my booking and tattoo processes before requesting an appointment, or contact me if you have any questions!
