Sponsored Artist of the Month May 2018 – Rachael Rose | Spirit Carbon Paper
Every 4 weeks we show appreciation for our Sponsored Artist of the Month. Each month we like to focus on a particular artist as we endeavour to find out more about them, and take a look at some of the recent tattoos they’ve made. An artist that we’ve always been completely in awe of is the extremely talented Rachael Rose.
Rachael has been on our pro-team for almost a year now, and we're constantly admiring her beautiful and unique style. Rachael's work is intricate and at the same time very striking, and she executes all of her tattoos gracefully, edging towards a really organic and botanical style. The subject matter of Rachael’s work varies between animals, plants, and all things nature, and we firmly believe that she really is one to watch right now!
Rachael began her career in tattooing around 6 years ago. After an original career path in Law, she studied Contemporary Fine Art and Animation at University but had her goals set on becoming a tattoo artist. Rachael made the decision to leave University and eventually landed an apprenticeship. She works hard every day to push herself and develop her style, constantly painting in her spare time, drawing lots of influence from nature. She loves anything botanical but is also fascinated by occult imagery. Rachael works from Lucky 13 Tattoo in Barnsley alongside a team of incredibly talented tattoo artists, so if you’re ever headed that way then we'd highly recommend paying them a visit!
As a supplier of a huge range of Spirit Carbon Paper, we’re really happy to be able to work alongside such talented artists, and we’re really grateful of their support! We’ve been huge fans of Rachel’s work for quite some time now, and we're confident that you will be too. Check out some of the brilliant work that Rachael has been doing!...
First up – a gorgeous fruit bat accompanied by some pretty blackberries. This is the perfect example of how Rachael’s work completely encompasses nature, and we absolutely love it
An incredible raccoon piece
Rachael has a real knack for creating some fantastic bird tattoos. A personal favourite of ours – some colourful love birds.
Another incredible bird piece. Birds seem to be quite a frequent subject for Rachael, and we can see why!
A charming Mason Jar with some super-cute botanical elements to it! We’re completely in love with this piece.
An awful lot of Rachel’s customers specifically seek her out for the beautiful pet portraits she does. We’ve seen many lovely cat tattoos that Rachael has made, and this one is spectacular.
We’re so fortunate to have such an incredibly talented artist on our pro-team, and we really enjoy keeping up to date with Rachael’s intricate work. Rachael will be working at Liverpool Tattoo Convention this May, so we’d highly recommend you to check out her amazing work if you’re heading to the North-West this summer. You can see more of Rachael’s stunning tattoos over on her Instagram page : @rachaelrosetattoo. Don’t forget, we stock a huge range of Spirit Carbon Paper on our online store where we cater for all your tattoo supply needs!
