Bright and Beautiful Watercolor Tattoos by Monica Gomes

Bright and Beautiful Watercolor Tattoos by Monica Gomes

Brazilian tattoo artist Monica Gomes has a personality as bright and bold as her tattoos.

Monica Gomes can usually be seen sporting funky pink and purple hair, super fun fashion choices, and a beautiful collection of tattoos. Gomes resides in Itu, in São Paulo, Brazil, and has been working as a tattoo artist since 2004. She began tattooing when she was 17 years old, but has always been an artist and always loved drawing. 


Working in bright colors with a limited palette and minimal black linework, Gomes has carved a Lisa Frank-style out for herself. Her work plays on all the classic tattoo motifs — Pharaoh's horses, for example, and geometric flowers — with a twist all her own. She runs her own tattoo shop which is located in her hometown, but she's also a world traveler and worked as a guest artist in many different countries.
