Resident Artist at NR London
Tattoo Style: illustrative, line work
Studio: NR London
Bio: I was born in Portugal in a city 45 minutes away to the south of Lisbon called Setúbal. It’s an old fishing town by the sea, it’s lovely but a bit small.
I moved to Lisbon in 2011 and started tattooing in October 2013. I had never thought about doing this before I started doing it, but now I can’t see myself doing anything else.I wasn’t in such a great time in my life, and I actually feel like tattooing came to me as a salvation. I kept tattooing because I loved it and it gave me a sense of purpose and accomplishment that nothing else had done before.
What I try to do in tattooing is to have a recognisable central object that when you look up closer you’ll find a lot of details you hadn’t noticed before. To me, it’s a very intuitive process. I like doing organic objects the most, especially animals and people. I feel incredibly lucky that tattoo found it’s way into my life. Tattooing is much more than a job, it’s my passion and I hope that I can continue doing it until I’m old and grey.
