Saint Petersburg, the muse city of countless talented personalities, is the cultural centre of Russia. One of the most prominent representatives of this city is Tatiana Vader, the author of great tattoo designs, endowed with great talent.
You can distinguish her creative style by unique combinations of graphics and watercolours. Tatiana works without pre-prepared sketches, giving freedom to her creative mind and following the flight it. Pencil and paper have been Tatiana Vader’s inseparable companions since childhood.
Because of her strong love and interest in art, her mother advised her to enter college to study as a “Technician Architect”. Her work has always been connected with painting: designer, animator, layout artist. Even she realised her dream of being a “Concept artist” in the Game Dev industry. However, she did not feel completely happy at work.
One fine day, an acquaintance advised Tatiana to paint tattoos. And here she decided to implement this idea, although everything was very scary and uncertain for her.
We should note that Tatiana approached this job with great seriousness and responsibility. While she was saving money to get a proper education, she was not only trying to draw sketches, but also researching questions related to first aid and sterilisation.
Tatiana’s First Tattoo
When talking about her first client, Tatiana jokes that the first client cannot be forgotten like the first love. She remembers that it was a young man who learned only after coming to the studio that the person doing the tattoo was drawing on the skin for the first time. And although the young man looked a little scared, Tatiana was more terrified.
She remembers that she wanted to just run away from there and forget everything related to the tattoo. However, after about 1.5 hours of work, seeing the result of her own efforts, she realised that she had found her true path.
