Duffy is a self-proclaimed “tattoo brat” having grown up in the industry — her parents started Red Octopus Tattoos in 1992, when Duffy was six years old. She started learning the family business while in high school and has been tattooing for nearly ten years. You can typically find her at tattoo conventions which are events she lives for. And she’s also been lucky enough to meet and befriend some of the best tattoo artists in the world, who have taught her a thing or two along the way.
Despite all her travels, home is where her heart is. When she’s not attending conventions, you can find Duffy where it all began, tattooing at the family business, Red Octopus Tattoo in Prince Frederick, Maryland.
