Faye Engler (formally Millage) is the owner of Bad Cat and has 23 years experiance in the tattoo industry.  She has lived in the Platteville area for 24 years, and has raised her family in the area.  

Faye started tattooing in Platteville, working at Spanky's Tattoos, then worked in Lacrosse, Prairie du Chien, and the Dubuqe areas before coming back to Platteville and opening her own business. 

She considers her specialty Black and Grey work, but is accomplised in all styles of tattoo work. She is also a piercer.

Faye works and volunteers for the Main Street Program in Platteville and was honored in 2010 with the Wisconsin State Volunteer of the year award.  

In 2011 she  worked with the Platteville Fire Department to design the department patch for the new uniforms.  


Faye feels that customner service is a very important thing in the tattoo industry. With tattooing becoming so popular, the service part of the industry has been forgotten by many in the busness, but not at Bad Cat. Taking care of our customers is a focus for Faye and each peson that works with her.
