June is Pride Month, officially, but for tattoo artist Tron, queer pride comes in more forms than a socially-mandated calendar month and a sparkly parade. Leveraging her talents for good, Tron’s created an entire flash sheet dedicated to Queer Pride, with all proceeds going to a non-profit that works with homeless LGBTQ youth.
“I’m inspired by punk, DIY aesthetics, old school flash, and I do my own twist to it,” says Tron, who’s been tattooing for a little over 6 years. You can see all those elements throughout Tron’s work — her other flash, for instance, might feature a coffee mug with steaming coffee, bold-will-hold lines, and a Descendents logo. The mash-up of punk and traditional tattooing is a happy marriage, and Tron knows how to fuse it right.
