My experience at Rainfire Tattoo was amazing. Not only did I feel like I was in a very loving and safe place but I also felt enlightened just by being there. The card reading before the tattoo gave me insight and empowerment as to why this beautiful art would be a part of me. Katia’s ability as an artist and love and passion for what she does shines through in her work. My tattoo healed beautifully and this was truly such a special experience. Many people have commented that it is the best tattoo they have seen. It is beautiful and I feel so much gratitude and honour to have been a part of the experience. Thank you to Katia for bringing more love, light, appreciation and empowerment into my life.

This was my birthday treat to myself. No words can describe how happy I am to FINALLY be tattooed by the incredibly talented hand of Katia Somerville. Thank you Katia! I absolutely LOVE IT!!! The experience of getting this tattoo was very powerful and I cherish my time spent in her studio. Before our session I drew a card from a deck, and she read me what it meant. It goes like this: “It’s time to leap into the air and let the earth turn beneath you, to discover new things when you come down again. Forces of chaos are at work. Look for the unexpected, find opportunity in it and ‘GO FOR IT’. Use creativity and think amazing new thoughts.” This sums up how I’m feeling perfectly. I love my tattoo so much!

Getting a tattoo from Katia was an amazing experience! I’m ecstatic about the way it looks, it’s healing like a dream, and she was amazing. Professional, and but extremely warm and welcoming. This was my third tattoo, though and everything about the experience just added to the importance of the piece.

My tattoo is healing well and looks AMAZING! Katia was so patient with me during the entire process and I really appreciated the time and care she gave me throughout the entire experience. I’ve received so many complements on it piece, and I cannot say enough great things about Katia and the work she does. I sincerely hope to visit again soon for another stunning addition. THANK YOU!



Well that was one of the most beautiful and magical tattoo experiences of my life.

What a magical experience! From the pre-tattoo meditation to Katia’s gentle yet detailed tattooing. I have been trying to get on the list for two years and finally, the day came. Oddly, it started to hail as I entered for my session, sunny all day, then hail again the second I step out after finishing (financial gains coming… anyone?? :D). I am very happy with my beautiful tattoo. It has garnered a lot of positive attention and I am just amazed at the detail and placement. If you get a chance to sit at any of the chairs at Rainfire, I strongly suggest you do. This art is on another level. Thanks, Rainfire team for such an amazing experience!

I had a wonderful experience getting my first tattoo. The studio was a calming place and I’m really pleased with Katia’s detailed line work and shading. She did an awesome job fitting the geometry of the piece to my shoulder and upper arm. The healing of process was a smooth one and I’m still delighted with the work every morning when I wake up.



I would recommend Rainfire Tattoo & Katia to everyone. My experience was unlike any other I have had at other Tattoo shops, and I have a good amount of ink. I received a beautiful Bud & Bloom design from the Rainfire Tattoo newsletter by Katia and from the moment I arrived at the shop I felt at ease and comfortable.



This tattoo has inspired my massage brand: Lunar Collision Healing. The timing of this tattoo was beyond perfect. I honestly cannot express enough gratitude to Katia. My tattoo has lit an inner fire within me and now that it is forever with me, the fire shall never die until this life time is up.



The atmosphere of the shop is very unique and calming. I felt welcomed from the moment I stepped through the door.
