BARTERING IS IN FULL EFFECT, WITH TATTOOS AS CURRENCY.
ARTIST PROVIDES MINIMALIST TATTOOS IN EXCHANGE FOR FOOD, LESSON, OR BOOKS
This is pretty cool and a story I know our tattoo nation will dig. Stanislava Pinchuk (aka Miso) is a Ukraine born artist that works in Melbourne and Tokoyo. Her work is extremely subtle and minimalist with a very unique style. The art itself is awesome but even more cool is the way you pay for the tattoo. There is no exchange of money. This is what Stanislava had to say about compensation for her work. She accepts “what someone feels its worth – maybe they teach me a skill in return, cook me dinner, give me a book I would love, assistant work, whiskey. You never know, but everyone feels good about it, which I like. But more and more, I feel like it’s becoming a bigger part of my practice.” Pretty awesome if you ask us. Check out some of her work and then visit her website.
