Welcome to Heavily Inked. In our newest series, we’re going to speak one-on-one with tattoo collectors and artists about what it means to be a heavily inked person. We’ll get deep as we go through the motivations behind their tattoo choices, the way they’ve been treated in society and much more.
For our first episode we spoke with the delightful Michela Bottin. Bottin grew up in a small town in Italy before become a tattoo artist working here in New York City. She tells us about her first tattoos, the reason she chose to tattoo her eyeballs, getting tattooed by Valerio Cancellier and whether she has any regrets.
