Students of the
INTUITIVE ARTIST INSTITUTE
“Justine and I AM CODE are so much more than an intuitive art course, it is a lifelong community of support, counsel, and friendship. I am beyond grateful! She made me look at the work I was doing. I started to focus on why I was doing it. I needed the support that Justine and the I AM CODE community provided to figure out how to keep going. It wasn't easy but they helped me stay consistent with their connection. I found my first real art tribe."
“The course is jam packed with info for artists who are at different stages of their art practice, ánd the support of a like minded and loving community of creative sistars is priceless!”
“Not to sound dramatic, but I am not the same as I was before joining the IAMCODE. I leveled up in self confidence, self-love, feeling in awe of myself and my abilities (spiritual and craft). I have more to improve however, such as being a bit more vulnerable when opening up about my artwork, and this is where I learn so much from my peers. What I didn’t really expect was the incredible chemistry between us students when we get together for our Open Studio Hours. That was a game changer for me, as I had been searching around for like minded people; not just in the sense of spirituality, but to be able to infuse that with critical thinking, shifting mindsets, practicality, acknowledging breakthroughs and discipline. This is important to me as I believe being balanced with these attributes allows for success in our craft and expansion. Our mentor Justine is strategic with how she architects the modules to set us up for success, and the support is so easily reachable in the circle she set up for the members of the IAMCODE. I've been in for only 3 months and haven't looked back, and going back to a corporate 9-5 job is not a choice anymore. Honestly, there’s so much more to say about this course, and I can go on and on but at the end, it does take major courage on your part to take that leap into the unknown, to get closer to what you want. I highly suggest you feel yourself out with the 7 day initiative. Check out her interviews with amazing artists for free on YouTube, check out her students’ instagrams, what have you. I will say it really is only 1% of what this new paradigm shift offers though, as I’ve come to learn afterwards.
I've started to share more of my work, and am in the beginning of sharing them from a more professional angle to provide my artistic services.The leap of joining in and seeing my skills unfold so fast, insane synchronicities unfolding like fractals since I've joined."
“I have never worked on 14 paintings at once!... In reality I only have 9-10 going at once but still that's a lot, did I mention all at once! whew! whoa whoa!!! I plan to have all 14 soon. This gave me so much freedom with less pressure on each individual painting making it more fun and having a better outcome for all of them. I am going to have what's completed framed very soon and I am going to get prints made as well. So that will be a big result!
I will share the new works for sale on my website in which I also developed during the course. I love how and feel that its completely necessary for my art process to organically and naturally come from a true authentic nature in my mind and heart. This course offers that to me with all the push, direction, and technical skill I also needed."
KIND WORDS FROM TATTOO CLIENTS
“Justine puts so much love and intention into what she does. You can tell that Justine is working directly from her heart as she crafts your experience. Her line work is impeccable and she has such a delicate hand so the needle hardly hurt during the tattooing. It’s like Justine was just uncovering what was already on my skin to begin with! It was such a magical experience for me. My tattoo symbolizes so much to me and my own personal journey and it was an honor to have Justine be a part of it.”
“Very high praise for Justine as an intuitive tattoo artist, and for her whole lovingly run studio of artists. Justine has a gentle presence, and her process of intuiting your design is amazing. I went into both of my sessions (one for each arm) knowing my intention for wanting the tatt, but not having a clue on design. I just loved Justine's fine line work (which you can see on Earth Alter's web site). Both times we spent about an hour on the design process: first talking about my energetic intention for the tattoo, then closing my eyes while she drew on my body. When she's done drawing, she leaves you to sit with it for a little while, and then happily takes feedback, making adjustments as you like. For my tatts, it was then another couple of hours getting inked, most of which were fairly painless. (It's just that last 20-30 minutes! Whew). High holy experience seeing my energy captured so beautifully on my body. Thank you Justine! So grateful for your artistry!"
“What can I say, Thank You Justine I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity for this amazing intuitive tattoo. I got to know Justine a little better during the pandemic, and if I hadn't already been in love with her art, I was doubly so after getting the opportunity to talk with her about art and creating and connecting with your passion. I was shocked beyond belief when my husband and friends gifted me this tattoo experience for Yule of 2020. Of course, the studio wasn't open yet, but I was more than happy to patiently wait. And then I kept waiting for "the right time" to book. I wanted to be in better shape, feel more fit... blah blah blah. I put it off. But then I realized the disservice I was doing my body by not honoring it in its current form. After all, it got me through some of the most uncertain times we've had. Today was my love letter to my body, where we've been and the work we'll embark on. Justine honored my wishes to incorporate a previous piece and do it in white ink. She has a beautiful, gentle soul and an equally gentle hand. The work is stunning and I can't wait for it to heal. There are so many subtle details that you can't see just yet, especially with the clear bandage on (that's what makes the bubbles). The studio is beautiful and clean with amazing energy.
I recommend this beautiful service to anyone looking to honor the energy of intention in their body art I'll try to post picture updates once it heals. I'll be looking forward to my next piece from Earth Altar.”
“I got the most beautiful intuitive tattoo from Justine. She is a very special artist, a soulful and thoughtful hand, and she infuses her work with love. THE BEST. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. DON'T WALK - RUN.”
