Defining her style is no easy task, because Sam’s work is inspired by reality: that translates into animals, nature, and female faces, in particular. And then she makes them vaguely horrific and surrealistic, even though our English tattooist doesn’t really like this definition. Because as she tells us in this interview, so much depends on her mood and what she feels like tattooing on a given day. Does a ‘Moody Surrealism’ style exist?

We recently interviewed Sam Barber (you will find the full article on Tattoo Life – October/November issue that will be out soon!)

Check out our gallery and be ready to meet her tomorrow at the London Tattoo Convention.
