Ally Rae has been creating art throughout her entire life, but began tattooing over five years ago in her hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where she currently resides. Ally finds tattooing to be a unique creative outlet that allows for all of her past experience in various mediums to come together. Although she is a versatile artist, she prefers to work in her distinct style, including fine-lines and blackwork stippling. Ally is a mother and caretaker by nature. Her vision of creating Moon Rae Tattoo was to curate a peaceful environment for the community that is a safe place for clients and artists to express themselves.
Although she hails from just across the Iowa border, Sierra Nicole began tattooing at Vishnu Bunny here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. After spending a year cleaning the floors and scrubbing tubes, soaking in all the knowledge she could from those around her, she began tattooing in 2017. Since then, she has begun traveling, moving a few times and meeting an incredible community of mentors in the process, before joining Ally Rae in her vision for Moon Rae Tattoo. She believes passionately in Moon Rae’s goal to create a safe, comfortable space for everyone to enjoy. She believes tattooing can be a powerful tool both in healing and in empowering a person with the ability to decorate their skin in whatever way they deem beautiful. Sierra enjoys working primarily with heavy lines, blackwork and dotwork - tattooing mostly flora, fauna, geometry, and religious/occult imagery. She prefers drawing bespoke tattoo designs, but always welcomes any ideas or references a client might have. She is best reached by personal email: email@example.com

An appointment is required – we do not do walk-ins or same day appointments, nor do we tattoo anyone under the age of 18 at this establishment. The first step in our booking process is a consultation, and you may visit our frequently asked questions page for more information. A consultation is free of charge and truly the best way for us to get to know you, listen to your ideas, discuss pricing, and make sure we have all the information needed to achieve the best results for your tattoo. It may take several weeks to several months to get an appointment with us, and that is because we pride ourselves on taking extra time with our clients, as well as limit the number of people in our shop for client safety and comfort.
