Abstract Ink: Tattoos With A Twist
In a bold attempt to blur the lines between fine art and body art, Amanda Wachob has created a unique tattooing style called ‘abstract’. Looking more like brush strokes than the detailed work of a needle, the end result is simply beautiful. Working out of the Dare Devil Tattoo Studios in the Lower East Side of New York City, you can find a small sample of Amanda’s work below:
Amanda Wachob was born in Buffalo, New York. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Purchase College in New York in 1998; held a Summer Residency in Pisciotta, Italy; and eventually a tattoo apprenticeship in Kingston, New York.
With over a decade of tattooing experience, Amanda also paints on canvas and has been exhibiting her work in solo and group exhibitions since 1998.
