Aleise is the girl you will need to talk to in order to set an appointment. She joined Tattooz by Sassy in November of 2013 and quickly figured out what it takes to run the behind-the-scenes work that makes everything come together. Her job duties include answering the phone, taking messages, setting appointments, taking deposits for tattoo appointments, calling back customers, ringing up services and sales, and several other miscellaneous duties important to keeping the lobby running like a well-oiled machine for the customers and employees.

In her spare time she enjoys Polynesian dance, camping, hiking, and exploring caves
