Some tattoos are meant as statement pieces for the body, while others take a subtler approach. Tattoo artist and illustrator Sollefe takes her passion for drawing and translates it into small body art that the wearer can enjoy solo. (Or, reveal it to whomever they chose.) Done in black ink, the images mimic the quality of her ink drawings on paper. Often, they directly inform one another, as her detailed spot illustrations are then translated into a stencil for the body.
Sollefe has her hand in many creative endeavors, and one of them includes teaching. In a recent workshop, she guided students on how to come up with and draw their own tattoos.
