Tattoo artist Reagan Lavish was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Living there for only a short period of time, she spent the majority of her childhood years in Orlando, Florida, later moving to Austin, Texas, before settling in Tyrone, Pennsylvania, in 2013.
Reagan was homeschooled for most of her education which allowed her to focus on what interested her most, art. Her love for art was indisputable. She put her heart and soul into her craft, always learning and growing, hoping to one day turn her love for art into her profession. Reagan began her career as a tattoo artist in September 2015, when Grin-N-Bare It Tattoo Parlor first opened its doors, as an apprentice under the parlor’s owner/artist Anthony Clesceri. Her practice and dedication led her to excel quickly. She completed her apprenticeship in November 2016, after which she became a full time artist at Grin-N- Bare It.
