Ivana is a tattooer and artist from Slovakia, she's currently based out of Outer Limits Tattoo in LA, California. She's 33 and she's been tattooing for 13 years now; she's also been travelling for most of her life. She has lived in Australia, Caribbean, New Zealand, Europe and now she's living in the US. She worked in many tattoo shops with some of the best artists, but she is a self-taught tattoo artist. Ivana is not your regular tattoo artist: her style can be recognized among a thousand tattoos and doesn't fit into any definition.
I enjoy doing 'modern' or "funky" looking designs. Designs that depict a marriage of street and graphic art with a peppering of realism all at the same time. Over the years I have developed a very individual and recognizable style. However the style I've worked so hard to create is ever changing and evolving. The style that I am known for at the moment is not definite and never will be.I am currently doing more 'street art' inspired tattoos, but I am not limited to that particular genre. I'm willing to stray away from it as long as it's interesting and inspiring enough and it gives me a challenge!My inspiration comes from many different sources; there are too many beautiful things around me that I couldn't possibly choose just one!I use photography as a reference constantly. Nature based things, contemporary art, fashion, paintings, the list goes on.. I definitely make it a point to attend various tattoo conventions all over the world to continue to keep my inspiration and creative energy fresh. I'm very motivated and passionate about what I do. I like to fuse together people's thoughts and fantasies with my own. I like to create new things and push the boundaries for sure!
