Lorri “Lady L” Thomas is a fine artist who started her journey into tattooing in 2005. Her favorite styles of tattooing include tribal, watercolor and black/ grey realism but she specializes in cover ups. She has been voted "Detroit's Best Tattoo Artist" for three consecutive years (Michigan Chronicle 2016/2017/2018) and also has been honored by the Detroit Pistons and Crown Royal as Detroit’s Creative “Culture Creator” (2021) and GoDaddy Icons of Detroit (2021).
Lorri is currently based in Detroit, MI at one of the best tattoo shops in the city, Detroit Inkspot. She does travel around the U.S. often tattooing and speaking at tattoo conferences.
Lorri is founder of the "Ladies of Ink", an black women's tattoo collective and tour. Ladies of Ink is also the worlds largest tattoo tour. The artists are from different states but unite to travel the U.S. tattooing together. She hopes to use the tour to influence other black women tattoo artists around the world and raise awareness of the under-representation of black women in the tattoo industry.
