SESSIONS: Zoe Bean's Meticulous Dotwork

NYC1 min Read

In our latest SESSIONS, we watch tattooist Zoe Bean of Brooklyn's 8 of Swords bring one of her hyper-detailed illustrations to life.

Anyone who’s spent even a moment with artist Zoe Bean knows how closely she holds 8 of Swords, the shop she’s been working out of for the last five years, to her heart.

A self proclaimed collector, Bean finds inspiration in everything from Victorian botanicals and vintage illustrations to nostalgic personal items and feels perpetually grateful to have found clients who allow her to translate these passions into tattoos on their bodies. Case in point, the client she’s tattooing in this episode of SESSIONS spotted one of Bean’s illustrations on Instagram and quickly inquired about having it tattooed.

We spent the day with Bean at 8 of Swords and watched one of her illustrations come to life — see for yourself in our latest SESSIONS.
