Original Designs for June 2018 by Katia Somerville

(above): Ascending Lace- Graceful humanity combines pride with humility. With Inspiration to add coloured jewels to black and white designs, Katia offers jewel colour of your choice. Would prefer to tattoo in shown placement but may also consider other placements. 
(above left) Evolocean- Remaining grounded, flowing with change, open to mysteries, and realizations of growth. Open to placement and either the bottom, top or both on the leg. Would also look good down the spine.
(above left) Finite Fractal- The nature of science and science of nature, is simply complex and complexly simple. Infinitely ending and ending infinitely. One session, open to placement.

I am a fast tattoo artist, however the time it takes will depend on the canvas size and skin. The designs in this month's newsletter should be able to be completed in a single session. Thanks for your interest and for applying. <3 Katia

About Dmitry:
My name is Dmitry Razin, 
I'm a 30 year old tattoo artist from Riga, Latvia, and I enjoy tattooing in a wide range of styles. I always try to connect with the client and I'm happy when I succeed. Every customer has an opportunity to help me find out more about his/her personality and that is how they are involved in the process of making a new tattoo design. That's how we can make more complicated tattoos with deeper sense and philosophy.
My goal is to make personalized and valuable tattoos for you!

        Меня зовут Дмитрий Разин, 30-летний татуировщик в Риге. Рисование было моей страстью начиная с раннего детства, и я превратил её в карьеру три года назад. Стараюсь не останавливаться в поисках возможности личностного, профессионального роста, опыта и новых знакомств в тату индустрии.

May 2018 Tattoos by Katia Somerville
Our past receptionist Kimmy came in to get a tattoo. I just couldn't bring myself to make her amazing hair b&w ... This tattoo is about flowing with change. Don't think you have to get everything right or follow your plan perfectly or even have a plan. 'Allow yourself to be your own self-experiment and focus on what you have more than what you lack'. @thebettyrocker . Thanks again Kimmy! ♥️Katia
Tattoo from last week called 'Energetic Dissection'- from root to crown and points in between, the center of energy has color unseen. It's about moving forward and putting the past behind her. ♥️Katia
Trust tattoo for Rachael, which represents stepping into the place of a strong yet soft woman and trusting the process of life. Thank you for trusting me with tying together the tattoos on your thigh, and thanks for all the homemade goodies and for being so genuine. It was cute you brought your stuffie, Inkpots... Or what was his name again? ♥️Katia
'Physiological Projection' tattoo. About feeling alive. ♥️Katia

Faye's new hand/arm that shows her character better. An honour to finish your lower arm/hand Friday, just after your year apprenticeship... Celebrate with creation, and melting into this path.♥️Katia
Zac's first tattoo.  ♥️Katia
Environmental Protection: Cover and illuminate with care. Cherish the now, support the future. ♥️Katia
At Home in Our Thoughts- Embraced with feather-lightness, this castle rests firmly but gently on a nest of conscious daydream. Just part 1 to a sleeve for a good friend. Your support and friendship have meant so much to me, Kylie. I appreciate your thirst for saying 'yes' to life and I'm very excited for our upcoming trips we have planned: to your first festival, and the Poland tattoo retreat! Thank you for loving my castles and for getting so many of them tattooed. Home is where your heart is. ♥️Katia
"Some things are predictable and manageable, but the farther away and time an event occurs, the less power you have over it. The farther away from your body and the more people involved, the less agency you wield. Like a billion rolls of a trillion dice, the factors at play are too complex, too random to truly manage. You can no more predict the course of your life then you could the shape of a cloud. So seek to control the small things, the things that matter, and let them pile up into a heap of happiness. In the bigger picture, control is an illusion anyway." David McRaney, in a book I've been reading it that a client gave me called 'You are Not so Smart'. Thanks for coming back, Brendon, and for bringing my favorite flowers to the studio, so thoughtful.♥️Katia
The last addition to Kevin sleeve before he moves up north. Some recent thoughts... When your perspective changes about how you view things and you don't carry those same judgements, it can open up a whole new world you never knew existed. Have a wonderful weekend! ♥️Katia
May 2018 Tattoos by Amelie Soucy
Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt. Great start to this sleeve project for Delaney! I had so much fun creating this! Portraits are so challenging, but I would love to do more of them. Thank you so much for sitting so well through these lines. 
Mountain sunset scene for Mitch, from from his childhood home.
Cutie rose for M! Her very first tattoo!
A little turtle dude gap filler on Dan. Going to add some background next time!
Solid start on this super exciting project for Neinke! Foxglove, amanita, lillies and bees! Really looking forward to finishing this up and potentially adding some colour.
Lil Buntzen Lake & mountain scene Thanks for the great conversation Tim, looking forward to tattooing you again!
An Octopus for Elin- first creature of a sea creature leg sleeve! 
Ornamental dragonfly and lotus for the lovely Kasi. Thank you for your trust and strength.
Ornamental elephant, for Jenna. ♥️
Crescent moon, for Ashley. ♥️
May 2018 Tattoos by Ashley Apok
The reality is that none of us are actually experiencing reality- we experience a tiny slice of the available spectrum through our senses, paint what we perceive on the interior of our skulls, and call THAT reality. Be gentle with yourself and others- everyone is living in their own dream. The beauty is that all of our dreams are interconnected. Thanks for choosing me to decorate your Earthsuit Tony, I appreciate our connection and conversations.
I'm so excited with how Desire's Metatron third eye sleeve came together. Thank you for your presence, connection, and trust. I love what I do and clients like yourself allow it to shine through. Thank you for choosing to wear my art- you carry it beautifully.
May 2018 Tattoos by Faye Cantara
So grateful that Roxy came to me for her first tattoo! She sat like a dream, and even kept asking me if I needed anything (water? A break?) A jewel of a human. Speaking of jewels, she is still deciding if she wants to fill this one in with colour or come back for some dotwork instead.
Not my design, but so fun to tattoo! Thank you for your trust, Kara. ♥️
