@michelewortman_art is best known for her innovative "bodyset" tattoos, and for her particular use of color and flow on the human form. She began tattooing in ...1998 after assessing her own early tattoo collection and imagining how it could be approached differently based on a desire to see lighter, more airy imagery designed to compliment the female form. With a background in painting, it seemed natural to approach tattooing in a less conventional and traditional manner. Influenced and encouraged by fellow artist and partner Guy Aitchison, Michele began to refine and redefine the look of the feminine tattoo.
The bodysets that Michele has done range from small to large, complimentary to symmetrical, and make use of both sides of the body. Catering to a mostly female clientele, Michele has applied this unified approach to tattooing that is both balanced and garment-like, putting a high priority on the overall look of the entire tattoo collection.
Just a reminder about the comprehensive coverup package we’ve put together over the last couple years with the help of a few fellow artists, such as @tymcewen and @shainesmithtattoo whose work is shown here. If you aren’t confident doing coverups then you are limiting your career- many serious collectors have old junk to deal with! By learning to see the puzzle differently you can gain great confidence in taking on coverup projects, and even enjoy them! Available as a 2 DVD set at tattooeducation.com, or it comes FREE along with many hours of other video footage and hundreds of pages packed with information in your ReinventingTheTattoo.com subscription. Now, back to our regular programming. #tattooeducation #tattoo #education #coverup
