Katherine's Social Media:


Katherine ‘Tatu Baby’ Flores lives in Miami, Florida. She is the daughter of a Colombian father and mother. She does not give much information regarding her parents because of the nature of her father’s job; He was a drug kingpin in Queens, New York. Flores’ father died when she was only four years old. To date, neither she nor her family has released her father’s name or any further information. However, we can tell you that the “Telegraph” once wrote that he was a colleague of Pablo Escobar, the controversial and notorious drug lord, also Colombian. The family got out of anything to do with the drug business, by her mother’s decision, once Katherine’s father passed away. This was the best move to protect her family.

Flores started tattooing as a teenager. She was a fan of Jose Lopez, Steve Butcher, and Nikko Hurtado — three tattoo artists. At 25 years old and with six years of experience, she was recruited to the reality show “Ink Master,” which is a tattoo competition. In its second season, the first Flores participated in, she came in fourth place. Influential people in the tattoo world have positioned her as a game-changing figure in the usually male tattoo empire. Her talent guaranteed her a place in the third season of “Ink Master.” This time Flores came in third place. “Till the End” is the name of Flores’ tattoo studio, which opened after her participation in the third season of “Ink Master” ended. Along with a team of excellent tattoo artists, Flores specializes in realistic, back and gray, and custom designs.

Her next small screen appearance was as part of “Cartel Crew,” a show produced by V.H.1 in 2019. The show features people who have family ties to people who are part of cartels or are drug lords. If you still don’t follow this talented tattoo artist and celebrity, we’ll leave you her social media handles, where she shares moments of her life with her partner and her son.
