I'm an apprentice tattooer in my second year working at Femme Fatale. I'm being taught both handpoke and machine, under the guidance of Grace Neutral and Emily Malice respectively. Femme Fatale is a female-owned private studio in the heart of East London where the majority of resident artists are women and non-binary folk. It was set up by Grace to be a safe and welcoming space for everyone, whether you're a seasoned tattoo veteran or a nervous first-timer! It's a really special studio with some incredible artists, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be studying there. My style embraces not only the beauty of the natural world but also the dark decaying parts. In particular I am fascinated by insects, snakes, plants, skulls, anatomy, space, and the occult.
