As the originator of the "Tattoo Model" genre, Howard's art has become the standard of tattoo photography. Her classic photography, in both colorbomb and black and white, has captured some of entertainment's top iconic entities, who bear all for her camera. Marilyn Manson, Billy Idol, Dave Navarro, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Dick Dale are just a handful of the celebrities that have spent time in front of Howard’s lens. Voted one of the Top 20 Tattoo Photographers by, Howard has been called the "edgy Annie Liebovitz.” Entire venues have literally been designed from the ground up, in shrine-like reverence, using her photography, including the upscale Lord Balfour Hotel in Miami, with its 30-foot wall murals in 64 of its rooms and photo-transfer print rugs, and a posh Washington, D.C., watering hole aptly named The Tattoo Bar. Her unique style is vibrant and crisp, supernatural and intense. Dynamic frame after dynamic frame, every shot stands illuminated and shines above and beyond her contemporaries. Coupled with a no-nonsense, hands-on shooting style, there’s really no stopping her as she moves forward like a loaded train to greater heights and even more impressive collections.
