SESSIONS: Drew Linden’s Intuitive Tattooing

SESSIONS: Drew Linden’s Intuitive Tattooing
TattoodoTV2 min Read

As she is inspired by religious texts, mysticism, and the occult, Drew Linden makes each of her tattoos part of her unique spiritual journey

The studio that a tattoo artist calls home can have an enormous effect on their creativity. If a tattooer is in a shop that makes them miserable, chances are that their work will reflect it. But when in the perfect situation an artist can truly soar, and that is what has happened to Drew Linden at Brooklyn’s Eight of Swords.

“I think being able to work in a shop as magical and wonderful as Eight of Swords really allows me to do all of the things that I truly love to do, with the clientele who I truly love and respect,” Linden says. In this episode of SESSIONS we watch as Linden creates a traditional style nun, a tattoo that perfectly showcases many of the things that she draws inspiration from.

Like all of the other talented tattooers at Eight of Swords, Linden is driven by the collaborative atmosphere of the shop, and it’s that atmosphere that helps her art keeps evolving. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Linden!
