Hi, I’m Lu. I make things.
I like the feeling of creating something that didn’t exist before. It’s a good feeling, everyone should try it.
I’m inclined to make floral things, or creatures, or both. I particularly like making art in physical form. I work with many different mediums, but I’m rather partial to ink and paper, and I’ve become rather fond of making digital art.
I make tattoos, murals, lino prints, illustrations, wedding invitations, business card designs, and the occasional painting.
I also have a Patreon where I make floral drawing tutorials for people that like to learn.
I began tattooing over 10 years ago in Plymouth, England, and haven’t stopped since. I scarpered from the UK 2016, heading to Canada, and now live in Toronto. I spend my time at Black Cloud Tattoos. It’s a beautiful space filled with great people. I also travel for guest spots and conventions when I’m able.
Some other things that people seem to be interested in:
- I am over thirty but have the face of a child.
- I do not look 'like a tattooer'... I do have tattoos, just very few tattoos for a tattoo artist. I know it’s peculiar.
Outside of making things that didn’t exist before, my interests include:
- bubble tea
- books that feel like they have been loved
- love stories
- those moments when it’s so quiet it feels like the world may have stopped turning
