We are a small group of great artists bringing custom tattoos and art to the downtown DeKalb area. 


Barbie Meyer

Owner/Tattoo Artist

Barbie started her tattoo career with a formal apprenticeship at one of the premier tattoo shops in Kansas City, Missouri. After completing her apprenticeship and dedicating her life to the craft for just under the last two decades, Barbies has moved back to her hometown, DeKalb, Illinois, and brought all of the knowledge and skill set that she has learned along the way with her to open Mindful Tattoo Collective. Barbie has full intent to continue giving the best tattoo work possible while offering the client a hassle free and enjoyable experience.
