Description

Vanguard tattoo artist Amanda Wachob uses a tattoo machine and ink to create art on canvas, paper, silk, fruit, and leather, in addition to human bodies. Inspired largely by modern painting, in 2008, she pioneered a unique tattoo style incorporating brushstrokes, washes, paint splatters and spills, commonly referred to as “watercolor technique.” During that time, she has also been using the tattoo machines and ink to push the boundaries of her field and make works for gallery walls. Wachob not only advances tattooing as an autonomous art form but also brings the medium into closer dialogue with the wider domain of art.
