It’s been a long time since we last did an artist of the month and it’s surely time for another one. As I’m thinking about potential artists to feature it’s really hard to pass on this one, from skill level, her work and more importantly I myself have been tattooed by this artist. Her name is Vesna and she’s based in Melbourne, Australia working out of the Leviathan Tattoo Gallery.
The most intriguing part of this story is that this is the basis in which Tattcare was formed, it was early 2018 and I was looking for an artist to start my sleeve. I wanted to make sure that I had the right kind of aftercare to ensure that my tattoo would heal nicely, to my amazement it was actually quite hard to find anything online that supported my needs. She recommended using Dr Pickles so I went out and bought a 75g balm and applied it to my fresh ink. It was amazing stuff and healed my tattoo within no time! I felt that I needed to create a website where people could use the same products and be well informed about what ingredients were in the balms – thus Tattcare was formed.
Now, back to the nitty-gritty. Vesna is particularly good at creating realism pieces in black with detailed shading and it’s what got my attention from the start. I wanted to create a wolf piece that represented myself and my time in Canada that would capture both the Rockies and Pine & Spruce which are commonly found trees there.
I truly believe finding the right artist is key and I hope some of her work inspires you to get your next tattoo!
