Tattoo Artist and Owner
Carrie Olson is a tattoo artist, painter, and community organizer. Lifelong creative, she’s been illustrating since childhood and has never stopped. Originally from Baraboo, WI, Carrie served a tattoo apprenticeship after completing high school. Her training at Point Blank Tattoo, in the Wisconsin Dells, focused on mastering custom tattooing (a style where clients commission original artwork instead of simply picking a design off of the wall of the tattoo studio). Her teacher, a talented painter, encouraged her to approach her commissions as uniquely as possible, expressing her own artistic voice and vision. She later went on to continue her tattoo education at the one and only Steve’s Tattoo, in Madison, WI. There she continued to grow, learning about traditional western and Japanese tattoo styles under Steve Gold. Having moved to the Fox Valley to work at another of Steve’s locations, in 2012 she partnered with her now-husband, Steve Anderson, to open the 920 Tattoo Company, located in downtown Oshkosh, WI.
Since beginning her entrepreneurial journey, she has gotten involved with the downtown Oshkosh business improvement district board. During her time with that group, she has worked to beautify the downtown through the BID beautification committee. This committee has worked to improve the appearance of the Main St in a number of ways; adding artwork to electrical boxes located within the BID, murals, adding lights to the Opera House square, and helping plan the planting of planters and green spaces located downtown. Carrie has also helped to organize various events over the years through her committee work, recently helping put on the downtown Oshkosh Chalk Walk.
Professional Body Piercer
Molly apprenticed under Carrie Olson starting in November of 2015. After starting, it didn't take her long to realize that this was where she wanted to be. Her apprenticeship was exciting and Carrie took her time to mold and develop her skills and swiftness. Not before long, she was piercing on her own and learning new tricks along the way.
Her favorite thing about being a piercer is not the piercing itself, it is the transformation that it can give you. Whether it's a milestone such as a birthday, graduation, or claiming self love by enhancing the feature you dislike, the look in people's eyes when they see their new adornment is the reason she pierces. Adornment and modification are necessary tools to help you grow and flourish, and she loves being that person that is able to help get people closer to their true selves.
If you can't make the Christmas tree bigger, ya might as well decorate it!
