Say hello to – Stephanie Melbourne…
Name: Stephanie Melbourne
Based: The Square Tattoo Studio, Solihull / The Family Business, London (from September)
Describe your art in three words.
Neo-traditional, diverse, detailed.
What music do you listen to whilst working?
I have a really eclectic music taste but usually something that keeps me motivated… hip hop, R&B, grime, old-school classics.
Who would you say are your favourite tattoo artists?
Sam Ford, Glen Preece, Nick Imms. My favourite neo-trad artists are Rodrigo Kalaka and Daniels Bauti.
If you could do a shout out for other tattooists, ones that are perhaps up and coming, who would it be?
I am really loving Summer Heath’s work – she works in Gosport. Also, Hattie Cox who works in Coventry.
What would your perfect meal be?
I’m a big eater so as long as my plate is full, I’m happy. If I had to choose right now – sausages, mash, veg and gravy!
What is the one question you get asked the most as a tattooist?
“Do you ever tattoo yourself?” and “which place hurts the most?” – everyone is different with pain so there’s not a definite answer to that one!
What album are you listening to right now?
Paramore – After Laughter.
If you could tattoo anything, right now, what would it be?
That’s a tough one! It changes a lot but right now maybe a Kali on the side of the calf. The bigger the better.
