Meet Chantelle Thong, our latest Tatsup Featured Artist!
Chantelle, Tell us a bit about yourself!
Born in Melbourne, I remember from the age of 5, dropping my father off at a tattoo studio for him to get tattooed. From that time, I grew a deep fascination with the idea of permanently wearing pieces of artwork.
Having an artistic background all through school and having pieces of art featured in galleries at the age of 9, it was at 16 that I became a tattoo apprentice. Through the years of working at different studios and expos, I have been lucky enough to work along side some of the world’s greatest.
In my spare time, when I am not tattooing I am travelling, admiring the artwork of other artists and visiting art galleries. I predominantly tattoo black and grey realism. I am currently guest spotting around Melbourne until I open my own private studio.
