Girls Only is a collective that provides various artistic approaches through tattooing (Tattoos by Cake), community outreach, and apparel design. We encompass our passion for art, philanthropy, and serving folks who look like us (BIPOC, LGBTQ+) as the root of our organization. Samantha (Cake) and Brittany, both lifetime and business partners, thrive in the notion of giving organically.  With the opportunity to partner with local shelters, non-profit institutions, and organizations to host creative events or simply circulate our funds, we ground ourselves in huggin' the block.
