Katja Heinze

Katja grew up building legos, catching bugs and daydreaming. She wanted to be a pilot, an environmentalist and an actress, but after high school she went into esthetics. She competed in nail competitions, judged them, and taught across Canada for OPI. After a couple years she made a brief switch into modelling in Toronto, then again into the oilfield and went through several speeding tickets, mud tanks and hair colours. She drove a vac truck on the rigs for a couple years while teaching herself to tattoo. After tattooing in the Peace River area of BC for a year, she moved back to Saskatchewan to open her own tattoo studio.

Katja lovingly owns and operates Mama Tried - Tattoo Smith in Saskatoon, and loves working in a community where artists and collectors get to co-create. Some of her favourite things to tattoo include portraits, anything related to nature, and blending realistic and illustrative styles. She adores getting unique concept ideas -whatever the subject may be - and weaving the story into images that say more than words ever could. That said, she also enjoys tattooing feel-good flash that is just plain fun to look at!

Her interests include business, photography, airbrushing, sculpting, writing and song writing etcetera, so projects and ideas of every form, shape and size are welcome!
