Toronto-based tattoo artist Stella is at the front of a new era of tattooing; One that favors sophisticated fine line tattoos. Her signature floral and whip shaded style work are easily recognizable and highly sought after.
“I knew from a very early stage in my life that I would somehow make a living through art, but was unsure of how to go about it. My older siblings started getting tattoos; which then intrigued my curiosity to learn everything I could about the craft. I was blown away with the art, talent and breathtaking imagery that was being printed onto peoples’ skin and the essence of trust that essentially came with the process. The industry is constantly pushing the boundaries of tattooing each and everyday; and that is a force that I knew I wanted to be a part of.”
Stella is self-taught in an array of mediums ranging from graphite to watercolor. The young artist, who is currently working at Golden Iron Tattoo Studio in downtown Toronto, has grown a steadfast momentum for success and isn’t planning on stopping any time soon.
