My Name is Jessica, I’m 25 years old and I live in Stuttgart in South Germany. I do love traveling, good talks and hangarounds with nice people, good records and discovering new things and perspectives in life.
I live in Lisbon, but I was born in Setúbal, a seaside city 45 minutes away to the south of Lisbon. I’ve been tattooing since October 2013. At the time I was married to a tattoo artist so I was already familiar with the world of tattooing for about 5 years. It started very unintentionally. I just tried it once for fun and enjoyed it so much that I never stopped again. At the time I was just fresh out of uni and was trying to get a job or an internship in my area of studies. I studied Painting for 3 years in the Fine Arts University of Lisbon and then studied Animation for 3 more years. I started doing this kind of line work right away, just because I wanted to perfect lines before I moved to shading, but ended up realizing that what I was doing worked on its own and I didn’t feel the need to add any shading. Since then I’ve lived the best years of my life, and also the most challenging ones. Doing what I love, meeting amazing people along the way and traveling often, it all makes me feel so lucky and the amount of love I get from the people who follow my work is humbling and touching.
Born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil, from his early days had an influence from the Impressionists through his mother, a fan of the era. Started learning how to draw at the age of 11 and when was 25 was introduced to tattooing by his best friends Brian Gomes and Brice Gomes. Tattooing is his passion for the past 5 years since he chose this path.
Nomad tattooer, focused on spread a positive message of fight, freedom, pro nature, animal and human beings through tattoos, looking for a strong visual and emotional impact to call the attention on those times where nothing really shocks us anymore.
I started my career back in London 8 years ago. It has been a challenging, busy, and exciting eight years. I am now working and living in New York city. My aim is to continuously develop myself and my skills. I enjoy meeting every client who comes to me with trust to re-create their visions and dreams.
Thomas Eckeard has been an artist his whole life, influenced by graffiti and skating, but he only began tattooing three years ago (2014), after quitting his warehouse job to pursue a career in the arts and support his baby on the way. He soon discovered blackwork, which allowed him the artistic freedom to develop his dark, haunting signature style. He’s inspired by space, magic, wizards, castles, and life, but his biggest inspiration is his son, Silas the King.
Brazilian artist born and raised in a low income neighborhood of São Paulo. At 9 years old, Rodrigo was already drawing cartoon characters and graphic novels. At his early teens, always with a skateboard and a backpack stocked with spray paint cans, he started to draw his own characters and lettering throughout the city’s walls.
Rodrigo studied industrial design and earned a graduate degree in Art History and Motion Graphics.
He has worked as an art director and illustrator, besides teaching Graphic and Fashion Design at undergraduate level in 3 different universities for over 9 years. Always looking for new tools, techniques and new surfaces to experiment on, Rodrigo found out the tattoo world. For the past 6 years, he has been creating and tattooing exclusive designs everyday. Each idea becomes a one of a kind piece of art.
Graduated from one of the top high schools in my country and went straight to the university, because that’s what you’ve got to do to get a decent job. I didn’t have a desire to be a tattoo artist, I just wanted to be an architect like my dad, but my mom insisted that I should study economics so that’s what I did. I dropped out my senior year, went to Istanbul and started working in a courier delivery services company as a consultant. After 3 months, I got fired which I still don’t know why.
After this, things started to develop; my tattoo artist asked me if I wanted a job and said that I could work at his parlour until I find a job. My family didn’t want me to work in a tattoo parlour because they worked so hard for my education. The moment that changed my entire life was when I said yes to my tattoo artist, that I’d be his apprentice and do whatever I have to do to become a tattoo artist. To date, this is the greatest risk I took in my life because I didn’t know if I was going to succeed in this path. After I did my first tattoo, I realized that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I feel like I’m being myself, complete when doing tattoos because all of my tattoos are my designs inspired by the people that will carry them for the rest of their lives.
I never regret this decision I took 4 years ago. As a tattoo artist, I’ve met thousands of different people, heard their stories, became a part of their life and family, listened to their experiences and learnt from their mistakes and also had an opportunity to move to New York as well; which is a lifelong dream for me.
