Alli Baker has lived in Kansas all her life, and due to family complications, she dropped out of school when she was only 16 years old. Fearless and with no tattoos, Baker secured a loan and landed her first apprenticeship at age 18, in the hope of launching a career as an artist. Eight years later, Baker is one of the top tattoo artists in Kansas City. She learned the importance of maintaining a competitive edge early on in her career, but today Baker loves connecting with her clients just as much as she enjoys competing.
