Society & Culture
From birth, tattoo artist Laura Martinez displayed artistic mannerisms and hobbies. She followed her dream in Paris, studying the scope of the arts until setting on a specialization in product design. Upon a serendipitous time spent in Madagascar, an endearment for African artistry and tribal tattoos soon became her calling. We speak about tattoo culture, the implication of inking, and how the relationship she builds with her client is grounded in hospitality.
