Lovers Paradise: Interview with Ana and Camille
Tattoo Artists7 min Read

In this interview with Ana and Camille, a tattooist and visual artist duo, they talk about how they met and how art is powerful.

Ana and Camille create work that is like finding a secret, hidden spot..a paradise of flourishing sentimental value, true love, and everlasting beauty. They bring the aspect of collaboration to a whole new level within tattooing: working together as creative life partners, their oeuvre is a blend of skin, sweet tears, and ever thriving blooms...a reminder that true romance and bliss does exist.
