La Tatuatrice

I do tattoos, illustrations, drawings and painting. I was born in Italy in Milan in 1980 and I’ve been living in NYC since 2011. I travel as much as I can and working in Milan, London and various conventions around the world. I now work at Daredevil tattoo in chinatown.

What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I’m a tattoo artist and I am so in love with my job that it became the fun part of my life.

What made you leave Italy and chose NYC?

I think I needed a change in my life and I was craving for something new…..for a series of coincidence I ended up in NYC.

Please share your best memory in the City.

Unforgettable spring sunsets with orange light all over the buildings yes…in love

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

That’s my everyday outfit, I was at work. Location is chinatown, exactly where my shop is.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I’m very honored to be part of that!

How would you describe being an ambassador of the italian style/culture abroad?

An ambassador? well I really hope I’m doing well. Don’t really want to disappoint my italian colleagues.
