Whether flora or fauna, Lital blends personal experiences of clients with her own visual language to build unique custom work that is wonderfully graceful as a design, and as an ornament for the natural body.

How did you get into tattooing and why was it something you were drawn to?

I was studying graphic design & visual communication since high school as well as photographing which was something I have been attracted to since a very young age and is my hobby even today. Tattoos were something I was surrounded and fascinated by personally. With time, I managed to realize that I could put them all together into one thing that I really enjoy doing which is designing, photographing and tattooing. That's how I work today and how I create most of what I do.

Can you talk about your inspirations, and how your style has evolved since you began?

In the beginning I had a tough time finding myself and sticking to something I love because I enjoy and am attracted to many different forms of art. So, at an early point of my career, I got to a place where I was doing pretty much everything and from there I started to realize that I could pick a few styles or techniques of tattooing and combine them into my own vision.

One of the things which inspires me during work is to hear the stories of my clients, observe it in order to collect all the pieces of their story so I can create for them an individual piece from my own visual point of view.

What is your artistic philosophy? What do you hope to give to the world with your art?

My philosophy about tattooing, at this point, is that knowing one thing is not enough in order to expand yourself in an artistic and creative way, as I see it, and if you would like the world to understand better what you have individually: show it. I think it's very important to always keep going with what you believe in.

What advice do you have for young artists trying to get into tattooing? What was the best advice you received when you first started tattooing?

I think that younger artists should always focus on working and working a lot because it's the only way to succeed if you really want it. Just don't give up. In the beginning of my work, I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by people that pushed me and didn't let me give up and that's pretty much it. I'm very thankful to each and one of them even today.

How do you feel about the future of the tattoo industry? What things need to change, and what needs to stay the same?

I want to believe that the future is very bright and I do think that people need to move on, adapt and accept the fact that we have new technologies which can help us a lot to provide a higher quality of tattoos much more than the times before and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that if you can do and use it properly in that matter.

Beyond tattooing, what are you passionate about? How do you spend your free time, and what do you do on your vacations?

I enjoy traveling a lot and seeing other places and different cultures also hiking and nature and photographing.

Any future goals, plans, collabs, etc. that you’d like to share?

Maybe there will be some collaborations in the near future but as for now nothing is planned. In general, I am very open for offers and always happy to share ideas with other artists. As for myself, I hope to just keep on going with what I do and try to evolve. :)
