Emily Allen

Emily Elizabeth Allen is a talented and creative Tattoo Artist  from Upper Chichester, Delaware County, who works at Headlight Tattoo. 

Emily attended Delaware College of Art and Design from 2018-2020.  She completed her studies in illustration, and graduated with an Associates Degree.  She then studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia for two additional years. In May of 2022 she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration. Emily then completed a 2000 hour Tattoo Apprenticeship at Headlight Tattoo- under the supervision of Harry Ake and all of the awesome Artists around her. 

Emily Tattoos clients 5 days/week in various Tattoo styles and techniques - including black and grey, coverup work, and minimalistic dotwork (fine needle shading with a rotary).  She can draw very well and compose fancy cursive writing in a beautiful way.  She has built a nice portfolio of tattoos, some awesome art for her Tattoo Station, and a number of interesting flash compositions.   Emily does nice solid tattooing.  Her line work is clean, her shading looks very professional and her design work is creative. She grades colors nicely and has fun doing it all.

Although Emily dresses exclusively in black, she is soft and kind. She has a steady hand, a generous heart, and a cheery disposition. Her clients say she is "light handed" and she has developed a nice following of repeat clients.


Emily loves cats and has two at home named Cleo and Nova. Other than Tattooing and learning how to Tattoo, she loves music, Halloween, and singing. Yes....she sings a lot!. Emily is usually in charge of the shop music, and as the shop DJ, she knows most of the words to all your favorite songs!

So, when planning your next Tattoo, come visit Emily at Headlight Tattoo, and check out her Tattoo Gallery and Instagram page often, as she builds a world-class portfolio!
