In this episode of Sessions, Guen Douglas talks about her Illustrative and Traditional approach to tattooing.
Known for her incredible take on the Traditional tattoo, Guen Douglas fuses her works of art with a sense of humor and wit that people absolutely gravitate to. Her colorful tattoos are influenced by so much, and in this episode of Sessions she talks a bit about that. From photography, food, travel, and artistic movements like Art Nouveau, Guen has a knack for merging all of her loves into her work. This particular piece that we captured while at the Mondial Du Tatoutage is a perfect example of that. A fun mermaid tattoo that brings Art Nouveau and Traditional tattoos pin-up iconography together, Guen describes how it wasn’t just her personal style that influenced the client’s choice. She talks about how the person who got the mermaid tattoo was unable to walk for along time and wanted to honor their struggle with a positive piece.
Guen isn’t only interested in tattooing; she also spends her time in Berlin running the small private tattoo studio Taiko Gallery. On top of that, Guen Douglas also loves to pour her knowledge of wine into her project the Juice Wine Show and Podcast that she co-hosts along with friend Emily Harman. Each episode focuses on “a featured region, grape, style of wine or interviews with winemakers, sellers, importers, and notable drinkers.”
Tattoo artists like Guen Douglas are special because their vast interests and projects creates dynamic energy and wealth of inspiration that fully supports their tattooing. Her pieces are all so powerful and this Art Nouveau mermaid tattoo is a perfect example of that.
