About The Artist

Lana Zellner, (aka Eight Coins) is a tattoo artist and painter, based in the mountains of Missoula, Montana. Lana is a resident artist at Blaque Owl Tattoo in Missoula - but regularly travels around the United States to tattoo. 

Lana holds a degree in architecture from Philadelphia University, and worked as an architect, designer, and installation artist in Philadelphia and New York City for 10 years before moving to Montana. Quickly after moving to the mountains, Lana decided to pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a professional artist -- She abandoned her career in architecture in 2015 when she began tattooing. 

Pulling from her previous professional experience as an architect, Lana’s art and tattoo work is heavily focused on line-work, bold design elements, and detailed ornamentation.
