Abby Jean Goodell AKA Aurora Whorealis

Abby Started tattooing as Jill's apprentice at INK in November of 2015 while still living in St. Paul. By July 2016 Abby had moved back to the northland to pursue tattooing full time. 

Abby attended Anoka Ramsey Community College where she dabbled in photography and glass blowing before moving to Duluth and earning her BFA in Studio Art and Photography at the University Of Minnesota Duluth in 2009.

Though she is just starting her tattooing career, Abby is super grateful to have friends that have wanted a variety of tattoo styles. This has allowed her to learn different techniques and has kept her on her toes. She doesn't have a specialty yet, but enjoys experimenting with color and working with clients to come up with something unique to them that they will love!

When not busy at INK, Abby is hanging with her cats, drinking some dark beer, rollerskating and doing lots of random projects. Check some of them out on her website
