Spotlight on Special Tattoos: Revisiting Tattoo Artist Interviews

Tattoo Ideas3 min Read

We love special tattoos and unique tattoos just as much as you! That's why we're revisiting some of our fave past tattoo artist interviews!

Every Friday we try to bring you some of the best tattoos we have to offer on our Tattoodo App, and this collection is no different! No matter what placement or the size, forearm tattoo...small tattoos...chest tattoos, everything included...we always like them to be high quality and special. For this tattoo theme article we brought together some unique tattoos that we feel might resonate with you, as well as some quotes from past interviews with these particular tattoo artists! We sought to go behind the scenes with these tattooists because they have something awesome to share with the tattoo community, and we thought you may agree!!

Of course, whenever we interview a tattoo artist, we always want to know two main things about their work: how did they get into tattooing, and what inspires them to make such unique tattoos? And they each have some pretty enlightening things to say! When we asked Brindi what inspired their particular designs, he responded, "I'm inspired by many things, but I would say the main ones are ukiyo-e, memes, The Simpsons and 1990-2000's tattoo style. Various artists definitely inspired me at some point in my carreer, like Marcin Aleksander Surowiec, Ichibay, Keuns." 

Many tattoo artists will describe their journey into tattooing pretty different from case to case. Some of them do pretty strict Traditional apprenticeships, while others take a more DIY completely depends on the talent, devotion, and personal story. 

Others, like Soto Gang, have a seemingly magical and quick road to success...but be assured, it still means a whole lot of work! " I graduated art school in illustration and had been working in the skateboard and streetwear industry. I bought a tattoo machine on ebay once...A year later I was invited to tattoo at Art Basel, Miami and another year later I was being trained by Maxime Plescia-Buchi at Sang Bleu in London."
