About Char Hall
Char Hall was born in Sacramento, California and raised in the wild plains of her imagination. At an early age she began to draw and create fantastical animal friends from within her head. They were a constant source of companionship and support. It wasn’t long until she discovered her heroes, Jim Henson and Brian Froud. It was then that her art transitioned to a whole new level and it began to get noticed. By the time Char was 18 she had been a California Art Scholar twice, won several awards and had been selected to show at the Crocker Art Museum three times.
After being distracted by having to exist in the real world, Char came back to creativity in 2006 and to doing art for a living. Since returning, she has already won awards for both her art and her tattooing. When not traveling the world or being a guest artist, she resides at Side Show Studios where she spends her time tattooing and creating creatures to share with the rest of the world.
Though she is too modest to mention it, Char has been voted Best Tattoo Artist by the readers of the Sacramento News & Review for 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010. She also won Best Visual artist 2007 & 2008. Her Studio has won Best Tattoo Parlor for 2008 & 2009 as well as placed in 2007 & 2010. She is a supporter of numerous local charities. Her TV appearances include Livewire, Good Day Sacramento twice as well as a feature on KVIE public television. Recently her art has made it to Hollywood where it was used for the movie Scream 4 and at the release party for The Psycho Legacy.
