Almost a decade ago, Delphine Noiztoy took a big leap and went to pursue tattooing despite the clamor of the naysayers. She was only 18...
Soon after, she travelled from France to the UK to hone her skills and get a better shot in achieving her dreams. In the same decade, she was able to guest spot in shops across North America, operate at the prestigious Sang Bleu Tattoo, and ultimately open her own shop in 2013, The Lacemakers Sweatshop. Her team is currently made up of Mimi, a neo traditional specialist and Laurent, a dotwork tattooer.
While Delphine's works range from pointillism to blackout, she has quite the collection of heavy blackwork pieces to boast. Hers are often in the form of thick brushstroke tattoos, blastovers, and blackout.
Here, she skips over a mandala piece to blast over some traditional designs.
