Hello Tattoo Lovers, the star of this “Have a Nice Week-end” is Isia. She is a true tattoo lover who found herself through tattooing. She is tattooed from head to toe and this second skin has made her body very harmonious. Wouldn’t you agree?
My name is Isia, I’m 24 years old and I live in Barcelona. I started my bodysuit on December 28, 2018 with Dino Vallely who works at the Misericorde shop in Sete in the South of France. With this project I wanted to assert myself, get out of the mould, impose my codes and show myself as I really am. I embellished my body in my own way.
I found myself through this art that is tattooing.
I came to settle in Barcelona because I find this city beautiful and it is a city where I feel free, I feel free to be who I really am. I know that with my bodysuit I might communicate a certain image but I am a cool person contrary to what you might think. The peonies and chrysanthemums tattooed on my body represent a part of my femininity.
My black arms are my favourite part of my body, it is so obvious and it represents my impulsive and impatient side, with no middle ground… with me it’s all or nothing. The ornamental came together to make my body more harmonious, to give meaning to this second skin that I am proud to wear.
I love plants, cats, yoga and the cocooning atmosphere, I am a real homebody. I like to be at home and have my little routine.
A few years ago if you had told me that I would end up tattooed from head to toe I wouldn’t have believed it! I loved tattoo but from afar. On others I found it cool but I did not see myself with tattoos… Then in November 2017 the first tattoo arrived and others followed. I started to like it.
One day, just a click of something that upsets you, and you throw yourself body and soul into a project that changes your life forever and makes you happy. I will never be able to express how grateful I am that I crossed paths with Dino Vallely without whom all of this would not have been possible. I can’t thank him enough for all this wonderful work done entirely in freehand. And this is what makes me more proud, this mutual trust, this opportunity, and this path traveled together.
