Artists: Santa Perpetua
What year did you start tattooing: 2008
Tell us about the style of your work: Graphic tattoo artist from Barcelona based in Brighton, UK.
My name is Santa. I am an illustrator, graphic designer and tattoo artist.
After working for a long time as a graphic designer, my way in the tattoo world started in 2008 under the teaching of my tattoo master Eduardo Sasía.
During the years, I have condensed all my knowledge about design and art in the tattoo subject, so the Graphic Art style is today my main creative outlet and the end of the search for my personal expression as a tattooist.
When I was an art student, I took art lessons in atelliers in Montevideo, Madrid and Barcelona, always exhibiting my art, working on various illustration projects, and why don't say that, wining some that another art contests.
I also studied Communication Sciences and I have worked as a graphic designer and photographer for companies such as L'Oreal, Coca Cola, Nike, Madpoint, Freeriderzine, Coup de Fouet, Descord and El Pais Cultural, among others.
In 2002, I left Montevideo to establish myself in Barcelona, where I lived for almost 12 years. Now I have settled up my stuff in Brighton, UK, where I work and express my creativity as a tattooist and artist.
What kind of tattoos do you look forward to doing: Graphic art tattoo.
