Architect Turned Tattoo Artist Builds Structured Imagery

Monika Malewska is trained as an architect but chooses to express herself in other creative fields. “My two passions are drawing tattoos,” she writes, “and I try to combine them working as a tattoo artist.” Her style is reminiscent of a draftsperson as she uses thin, precise lines and geometry to build and map out the smaller parts of a great whole.
