Where Flowers Never Perish: Interview with Alice Kendall

Where Flowers Never Perish: Interview with Alice Kendall

Tattoo Artists4 min Read

In this interview with Alice Kendall, she talks about the Portland tattoo community, and how being a mom made her fearless.

In a veritable lush and lavish Secret Garden is where you'll find Alice Kendall and her botanical illustrations on skin. Here flowers never perish, but rather flourish, marked upon collectors around the globe...springing up in all corners of the world...vast blooms in Victorian tones everywhere. 

What is your artistic background? Did you always want to be a tattooer and how did you get into tattooing?

Who are your artistic heroes, tattooists or not? Are there any films, books, visuals, that inspire you?

Many tattooists, I think, have a specific idea or philosophy behind their work. What would you say yours is? What would be your advice to artists who are struggling to find their voice?

Can you talk about the tattoo community in Portland and why you decided to open a shop there? What do you feel the mission is behind Wonderland Tattoo? What makes a good shop?

Your IG bio says you’re a mother, wife, and believe in magic...can you talk a little bit about how these aspects of self influence your artwork? How has being a mother changed the way you view the world?

Do you have any plans for 2019 that you’d like to share? Travel plans, collabs, projects, merch releases, etc?
