artist bio

Hi, I'm Daniele.

I’m a Brazilian tattoo artist based in Melbourne, Australia. I started tattooing in 2017, after working for many years as a fashion designer and freelance illustrator.

Drawing and nature have been long time passions of mine. I have a training in botanical illustration and now translate this experience into my floral designs and artwork. 

Working ink on skin is much more challenging than watercolour on paper, but also much more rewarding. I love meeting new people and listening to the stories behind the tattoo.

These exchanges inform my practice and my research about women in contemporary tattoo culture, that I develop as a PhD candidate at Monash University.

Nature is an essential part of my life and a major inspiration for my work, so I am a member of the 1% for the Planet initiative, supporting nonprofit environmental organisations in Australia and Brazil as a way to give back to the planet.
I acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners of the lands on which I live and work. I am committed to Pay the Rent to support community initiatives that promote the sovereignty of indigenous people.
