“As time has passed I’m still so in awe of the art on me. The feedback I’ve gotten is amazing and has opened me to my reasons and ideas that went behind the tattoo. My 77 year old aunt likes it.”

“Katia’s work has inspired my massage brand: Lunar Collision Healing. The timing of this tattoo was beyond perfect. I honestly cannot express enough gratitude to this amazing woman. My tattoo has lit this inner fire within me and now that it is forever with me, the fire shall never die until this life time is up.”

“I was chosen for the Celestial Empowerment tattoo from the December designs. My experience with Katia and at Rainfire Tattoo was amazing. Not only did i feel like I was in a very loving and safe place but I also felt enlightened just by being there. The card reading before the tattoo gave me so much insight and Empowerment as to why this beautiful art would be apart of me. Katia’s ability as an artist and love and passion for what she does shines through in her work. My tattoo healed beautifully and this was truly such a special experience. Many people have commented that it is the best tattoo they have seen. It is beautiful and I feel so much gratitude and honour to have been a part of the experience. Thank you to Katia for bringing more love, light, appreciation and Empowerment into my life. “

By Katia : Katherine

My experience with Katia was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable and at ease since it was my longest tattoo session to date. Thank you so much for allowing me to share this experience with you Katia. Looking forward to next time!

By Katia : Julia H

“I feel very blessed and grateful for being chosen to receive a tattoo from Katia from her November designs. As soon as I walked in to the studio, I felt welcomed and calm. Katia encouraged me to take my time with grounding myself prior to the tattoo through breath work, light meditation and a card reading that was really enlightening, and helped me get in to a relaxed state. She embodies pure love, kindness and acceptance which made for a very comfortable atmosphere to undergo a deep meditation on pain. Her art and her process is simply breathtaking, transformative and inspiring! I am incredibly happy with how it has healed and with my overall experience at Rainfire. I look forward to future visits!”

By Katia : John

“What a magical experience! From the pre tatt meditation to Katia’s gentle yet detailed tattooing. I have been trying to get on the list for two years and finally, the day came. Oddly, it started to hail as I entered for my session, sunny all day, then hail again the second I step out after finishing (financial gains coming… anyone?? :D). I am very happy with my beautiful tattoo “Envy.” It has garnered a lot of positive attention and I am just amazed at the detail and placement. If you get a chance to sit at any of the chairs at rainfire, I strongly suggest you do. This art is on another level. Thanks, Rainfire team for such an amazing experience!”

By Katia : Janet S

“I had a wonderful experience getting my first tattoo with Katia in early January. The studio was a calming place and I’m really pleased with Katia’s detailed line work and shading. She did an awesome job fitting the geometry of the piece to my shoulder and upper arm. The healing of process was a smooth one and I’m still delighted with the work every morning when I wake up.”

By Katia : Diane L

“Getting a tattoo from Katia was an amazing experience! I’m ecstatic about the way it looks, it’s healing like a dream, and she was amazing. Professional, and but extremely warm and welcoming. This was my third tattoo, though and everything about the experience just added to the importance of the piece. “

By Katia : Britt

“I would recommend Rainfire Tattoo & Katia to everyone. My experience was unlike any other I have had at other Tattoo shops, and I have a good amount of ink. I received a beautiful Bud & Bloom design from the Rainfire Tattoo newsletter by Katia and from the moment I arrived at the shop I felt at ease and comfortable.”


Felix Addison

By Felix : Jill M

“I’m in love with the recent work done by Felix. Every time I look at my tattoo I see something that I didn’t see before. Rainfire is the perfect place for first or last tattoos (is there ever a last one?) Amazing artists, sandalwood essential oil, tea, faerie cards, the best place to finish a book. Much love!”

By Felix : Gracie QD

“Got my first tattoo here by Felix and I couldn’t be happier! I had been waiting 20 years to find the right tattoo and I finally did it in the beautiful and powerful designs of Felix! Being my first I was a bit nervous but Felix and Katia were amazing and I felt immediately that I was in good hands. Felix and I talked about the meaning of the tattoo, and the fact that she values as I do the power of a tattoo in the physical body, and the energy it can carry and that getting tattooed is more like an espiritual experience or an initiation if you will, made me feel so relaxed, happy and grateful at the same time. The possibility to spend some time in the meditation room was certainly a plus. The whole experience was quite relaxing and I can’t imagine getting tattooed anywhere else. Amazing artists and beautiful souls, I am ever grateful especially to Felix. Being an artist myself, I feel so proud and humbled to showcase such a magnificent and meaningful work of art in my body. I can’t say enough, thank you so much!”

By Felix : Kyle V

“A friend referred me to Rainfire tattoo a few months back. After a little while, I contacted Felix to book a session and do some design work. While I was a bit worried about the drive from Seattle, Once I got to the studio, all my anxieties washed away. This studio, hands down, has the best, most peaceful atmosphere I had been in, in months. Felix, the rest of the staff, and even another patron, were all incredibly comforting and supportive. I am extremely satisfied with my tattoo, and I will be back for more work as this life-story continues. “


Faye Basravi

By Faye : Keeley

“I received a beautiful little birdy from Faye and I couldn’t be happier! The customer service was wonderful and she had such a gentle hand. I also got a 5 hour piece from Amelie during one of her guest spots which healed wonderfully. Both ladies are fantastic and I’ll definitely be back!”

By Faye : Hayley

” I recently saw Faye at Rainfire for the first time. I was worried about getting an appointment because they don’t have a phone but she responded back to my email within a week and I was in for a consult a week later, and had my tattoo done a few weeks after that. The studio is cute and very welcoming, Katia was so kind and friendly and Faye was so lovely! So excited I found a great artist that I can actually book with! She did such a fantastic job on my tattoo, exactly what I wanted if not better. She was also really quick, and it didn’t cost me my whole bank account. And she is so sweet and easy to talk to. She took the time to get the size/placement exactly right and made sure I was 100% happy with things before she started. Love her and Rainfire, can’t wait to get my next one there!”

By Faye : Hayley

*Not Faye’s Design* “Wow! What an incredibly sacred/spiritual/beautiful experience I had at Rainfire Tattoo. Faye was my artist. She was AMAZING! I could not be any more happier with my tattoo. This was truly a special moment in my life. Thank you for everything!”

By Faye : Andrea

“My sister and I got a tattoo from Faye Cantara (Basravi). Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. Faye was very friendly and professional. She designed a tattoo for us based on some ideas/suggestions we had. She drew a beautiful and original piece, and we couldn’t be happier with the tattoo. Our whole experience at Rainfire was comfortable and pleasant. All of the artists were friendly and professional, and the setting is quiet and soothing. We would highly recommend Faye, and we would definitely go back to her. Thank you Faye!”

By Faye : Erica

“I had a fantastic experience getting my first tattoo from Faye at Rainfire. She was a joy to work with through the consultation process. My sister and I wanted to get tattooed together, and we gave her a pretty loose framework of what we were looking for. The design she came up with was perfect on the very first shot. Both my sister and I loved the sketch.”

By Faye : Donald

“Rainfire is an amazing place to get a tattoo! A place that completely bucks the trend of what the atmosphere of a tattoo establishment should be, the aura is that of warmth and compassion. I had a great deal of anxiety leading up to my session and was completely calm and relaxed in the presence of such talented artists. Faye did an amazing job on my tattoo, was knowledgeable and considerate on how to tattoo PoC, was a good pairing for me as an artist and we had some great conversations. Will definitely be coming back and cannot give high enough of a recommendation. “
