After completing her bachelor degree in arts Melanie went on and completed a 2 years apprenticeship period at HOUSE OF PAIN tattoo center in Eskilstuna, Sweden, year 2011. She educated herself in cosmetic pigmentation parallely to her apprenticeship and became an approved permanent make-up artist in 2012.
The artist first came in contact with arts and creativity as a child, thrue her father who was an architect. The artist would often get to follow her father to work as a child and there was always creative material at the office wich Melanie was allowed to play with while her father was working. She therefore picked up an early interest for colors & shapes, which quickly turned into her favorite hobby. The visits at the office were wonderful opportunities to get acquainted with creative material as well as drawing digital pictures on the first paint program, which also quickly became oen of her favorite! :)
The artist's' interest for arts and creativity has continued to grow ever since then. Due to her love for the punk rock scene Melanie aquired influences from the music and life style early in life and started to gain interest for body modifications as an art and self-expression form. She therefore pierced her own nose at age 12 and went on to get her verry first tattoo at age 16 ( Yes.. it was illegalthen too..!) in a random tattoo studio in Montreal, Canada.
After several years in the teaching proffession, Mel decided to leave the teaching gig, to re-engage with her great passion and decided to open her own tattoo studio. The INK STUDIO artist is now living her dream and her interest for art and alternative forms of expressions continues to grow every day.
