5 Questions With Tattoo Artist Renée

I chat to Athens-based artist Renée.

Tattoodo readers, it's time you got to know this incredible black-work artist!

The time-lapse video below gives an incredible insight into this talented artist from Greece. I was also lucky enough to grab time with Renée whilst she was over in the UK doing a guest spot in Leicester.

1. How long have you been tattooing?

I have been around tattoos and tattoo shops for five years now, but working as a tattooist for two years.

2. How would you describe your style?

I have tried different styles throughout the years but what I'm really into is neo-traditional black-work. I do like to discover new styles though and try them with a few changes to give them my own twist. Music and lyrics give me my inspiration to draw.

3. What do you love most about your job?

One of the best parts is working with friendly people who have a good vibe, and then seeing them leaving satisfied with their tattoo. That's the biggest joy I get.

4. Will you guest in the UK again soon?

Yeah I'm planning on coming back to the UK again very soon. I had some great moments with the guys from the studio (Brothers Ink H.Q. Leicester) and customers showed an interest in my designs.

5. How does tattooing in the UK compare to elsewhere?

The tattoo industry is huge in England compared to other countries. England has so many big names and I believe the best tattoo festivals in Europe.
