Stella Rius is a young tattoo artist tattooing out from Moscow, Russia.
Stella believes that every tattoo should carry a meaning of joy and positive vibes. And believe me- her tattoos are all about that. Her designs are adorned with contrasting and bright colors drawn with smooth, shaded lines. She creates illustrative tattoo designs from cartoon-ethnic motives that totally transmit her artsy and creative style. I'm a huge fan of blackwork tattoos, but damn, this girl nails it with her bright designs.
A tattoo session holds a symbolic meaning for this young talented artist as she says "each tattoo session is a hidden ritual between the client and the tattoo artist- it's exchange of energy". That's quite on point because we all know the important role trust and understanding play in a situation like that. Yes, it's all about the good vibes.
