Silas’s Tattoo Portfolio

hbaemployee@gmail.com

Silas is a recent transplant from NYC. Originally wanting a career in graphic novels, Silas became interested in making line-work on skin and finding ways to alter the human form and find a path working with people directly, translating stories into tangible souvenirs. Tattooing has been a means of connection and intimate exchange and Silas wants to provide a safe space for queer clients and otherwise who want to reclaim ownership of their body. Their work reflects their fine art/ illustration background with colorful tattoos similar to oil paintings and black work that builds on dotted texture. They are interested to tattoo anything folklore, botanical or animal related.
