Meet Séona Stewart as our featured Tattoo Artist

Tell us bout your journey into becoming a full time tattoo artist? 
I was studying music when I was introduced to the tattoo industry. When I left collage, it was quite difficult to find work in the music industry and at that time I bumped into a friend who was doing her tattoo apprenticeship and told me some shops to look into that were looking for apprentices. so I checked it out and that was that.

What were some of the most important lessons you learnt during your apprenticeship?
Probably the hygiene aspect was well ingrained, and to spend time drawing

What skill do you feel was the hardest to learn, that you initially thought would be easy?
Definitely line work, it felt as though there was some hidden secret to it but it’s just practice.

What style of tattoo would you say you specialise in, and why?
I try push my own drawing style but it’s taken me along time to figure it out what ‘tattoo style’ I fit into, but I’m glad to have taken the time.

What do you like most about working out of 1933 Classic Tattoos?
The people I work with are amazing, I feel very lucky to have them all as mentors. It’s a great environment. I feel nurtured as an artist, to push my own style.

Where would you like to see your tattoo artist career take you?
I suppose, to travel.

Interview with our Tattoo Artist of the Week, Séona Stewart

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?
There’s some weird and wonderful people in this industry and it’s nice to be a part of it in some way.

If you could do a collaboration piece with any local and international artists, who would they be?
That’s a hard question, there are so many good ones here in South Africa alone.

What is the most important attribution to ensure you keep progressing as an artist?
To keep drawing, and to try force yourself even when you don’t want to. Also, my boyfriend is an artist and he’s really opened my eyes to – if you’re not drawing you are cheating yourself.

How would you best sum of the life of a tattoo artist?
I was told during my apprenticeship that it will take over your life and I was like, not me, but it pretty much does. I try do other stuff though.

When not busy tattooing, what do you like to do with your down time?
I like to sew sometimes, I like yoga. I roll around around on a skateboard sometimes, not too intense, don’t wanna hurt my hand you know.
