Your tattoos are dainty, delicate, and focused on symmetry. How did you develop this style, and what makes you love it so much?
Firstly I always preferred abstract art to figurative, this is what pushed me to do ornamental tattooing. In addition, I am very attracted to the henna tattoos and that is what you can find in some of my tattoos. Touches of nature have always been a theme in my work as I appreciate and adorn women with my eternal jewelry.
What’s an upcoming tattoo project you’re excited about?
I am very excited about larger tattoo pieces. I am looking forward to full body pieces too!
What’s the most difficult part of being a tattoo artist?
The most challenging part of being a tattoo artist would be watching people bear with the pain of getting one - since tattooing still involves some physical discomfort.
What would you advise to new artists who want to work on fine, precise and intricate styles like yours?
I find it difficult to give advice because I feel like I haven't tattooed long enough yet.
In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to magic?
