What kind of projects do you tattoo?


I am currently very interested in tattooing distorted text and conceptual compositions involving human figure, nature, and text. I only use black ink and work a lot with gradients, textures, dotwork, negative spaces and solid black. I want to work in medium to big scale, so this type of projects will always have priority (and even special price!) I do custom text tattoos, but only if I feel conceptually connected to them (i won’t distort and tattoo the name of your sister or a word that only makes sense to you) / distorting a word is a very strong conceptual action and I don’t want it to only be seen as a trendy aesthetic.




How do I book an appointment?


Please fill the form on the “Book” section of this website. I will get back to you via email shortly, with an estimated budget, some date options and guide you through the deposit. An appointment is only confirmed once the deposit has been made. After that you will get the final email with all the guidelines for preparing for our meeting.




What words / concepts are you interested in tattooing?


If you would like to get a distorted concept but you are not sure which text would make sense, I created a list of concepts that are really interesting for me, for you to pick from:
Queer Love Error Exit Illusion Gender Fluid Power Forever Paradise Deep Solid Pain Today Why? Why not? Real / Reality / What is real? Fantasy This moment Confused Yes / No Free / Freedom Complex / Simple Hungry Change Now Present Easy Reset Beauty / Beautiful Enjoy the ride What does it mean? Tired I tried Better run Discipline You got yourself Impermanence Equanimity Decay Silence Remember Come home Curious Further No plans Lost Stop thinking Consumed Lack of it Never again Expand Perception Forget Come back Take risks Explore / Keep exploring Hey Trouble Priceless Success Evolution Effortless Bliss Melting Universe God Haunting Tremble Truth / The truth I promise Pleasure Lust Correct Connect Loose control Hello For life Danger Alive / Life / Live Die / Dead / Death Safe Dance with me Remember Memory Feel me Mistake Commit Come home Tangible Sleep with me Your smell Fragile Beauty Beautiful Secret Shadow Damaged Love Baby Easy Transparent Rewind Sin I found you Something about you.

I want to get a custom piece! How does the design process work?


I love drawing from your own personal desires and ideas! A tattoo can come from a trip, an experience, a book you read, a photo you took, a quote, a feeling. If you trust my skills and are willing to give me creative freedom, you can fill in the “Book” section and tell me all about your idea. I will sit will all that information provided and draw something specially for you!




Can you send me a sketch before the appointment?


I don't send designs via email. I draw custom requests prior to our appointment, and when we meet and take a look at the proposals together we will have time to make all the changes we feel the design needs to suit you. I aim to do only 1 project per day, so all my energy and attention will be for our project. This also allows us not to be in a rush. We will make every modification needed in the design and placement until it feels right.




How long does the tattooing process take?


I respect the process and i’m certain that a tattoo should take as long as it needs. Some times it’s very quick and easy, some times it’s more tricky and demands more time and patience. I aim to only do 1 tattoo a day so there will be no rush. Please don’t make plans for directly after our session so we can work without a time restriction!




Do you do cover-ups?


I do! And I really like them! It’s an honor to have the task of transforming something that its placed in your body and you don’t like, into something that you will look at every day and enjoy! There are, however, some things you need to know about cover-ups: 1) I don’t like when you can still see the old tattoo through a cover up! So the final piece will be at least 3 times bigger than the tattoo we are covering. 2) Not every design is good for a cover up! In general, organic and non-geometrical designs are more forgiving, since they fool the eye better. 3) Only black covers black! So be ready for some solid/bold work on your body. 4) If the tattoo you want to cover is very big and bold, I might suggest to get some sessions of laser removal before we start working on the cover-up. This way the original tattoo will be faded and we will have more options! 5) You can book a free consultation so we can meet and discuss it live. Just mention it when you fill the form in the “Book” section of this website.




Do you do color tattoos?


I only tattoo with 100% vegetable black ink (vegan). I had a bad experience with color in the past in my own body. After getting a pink tattoo in my leg I discovered I’m allergic to some component on the Magenta pigment. Now I have to live with the allergy and every time the tattoo is exposed to the sun it gets really itchy and the skin rises. I researched some other cases and realized a big percentage of humans are allergic to some components in color pigments, thats why I decided to stop using them. Black is safe, and it also has so many possibilities! So I’m sticking to it at least for now.




What happens if for any reason I can’t make it to our appointment?


Deposits are not refundable. You are entitled to reschedule your appointment up to 1 week before the date (this gives me time to fill the space with another project). Cancellations in the week before the appointment means you loose your deposit and if you want to book a new appointment in the future, you will need a new deposit (its too hard to fill the space with another project in the same week, so basically my day of work is lost and your deposit covers my minimum costs for keeping that day for you). No-shows are a lack of respect, and mean you won’t get another chance to be tattooed by me.




Do you travel to other places?


I try and do a couple of guest spots every year. They will all be announced in the “Travel” section on this website, as well as on Instagram.




Do you do collabs?


If you want to work with me on a special project please write me a mail! hi@julimrosa.com
