At one point in time, Little Swastika was one of the world's most well-known artists. Sought after by collectors around the globe for their bold, bright and unique style, Swastika had their work shown in tattoo books and magazines alike. However, things have changed.


Swastika, who now goes by Lily Lu, has turned away from tattooing and now lives as a filmmaker. Creating content for both YouTube and the adult industry, Lu gave up a steady income as a tattooer to follow her true passion. 

Although Lu worked as a tattooer for fifteen years, she closed that chapter to pursue new opportunities. Take a look at her full-length podcast where she explains ending her time in the tattoo industry.
