In this episode of Sessions, Stef Bastian does a rendition of his famous bent back tattoos with a depiction of the Goddess Kali.
Filmed at the highly respected 15th Anniversary of the London Tattoo Convention, we met up with Stef Bastian to watch him create one of his well-known bent back tattoos. Though many tattooists create work in this style, Stef’s pieces are unique not only because he blends Japanese and Traditional tattoo aesthetics and iconography, but also because he often prefers to represent particular characters. He’s done everyone from rock star Lemmy of Motorhead and Keith Flint of Prodigy to actors like Bill Murray and Charlie Chaplin. This time a client had requested the Goddess Kali and Stef was finally able to reproduce a painting he had been hoping to tattoo for a long time.
For Stef Bastian, spiritual iconography is very influential. He personally has a meditative and mindfulness practice that he implements not only in his day to day life but within his artistic output as well. As he explains in this video, the philosophies he lives by are about being aware, intentional, and receptive to true emotional states in the most authentic way possible. This ensures that his work, and the tattoo experience, is not only the best it can be for the client but that Stef’s personal path is full of positivity and creativity.
