Courage My Love is thrilled to introduce our latest Artist In Residence, talented tattoo artist, Federica Benedet talking about her influences and introducing our out-of-this-world new design Dream Galaxy.
Federica is a talented tattoo artist from a small town close to Venice in Italy.
“The first time I took a pencil into my hand I was probably around 3 years old, since then I never leave home without all my drawing toys. I started studying art at high school and I finally got my degree as a Painter at the renowned “Fine Arts Academy of Venice”.
While studying, I became interested in the world of tattoo and I started tattooing my friends for fun. But I got quite good at it and more and more people would ask me to get some ink on their skin, until eventually I got asked to work in a Tattoo Shop and it became my vocation.After a couple of years I got pretty famous and I would travel all around Italy as a guest artist but it wasn’t enough for me and after 8 years I finally decided to travel the world and I ended up in this beautiful country, It was love from the first instant I arrived.”
