Ink & Afro is new to Penzance and was previously known as Urban Art Tattoo. Artist’s Marianne and Marta have teamed up in this creative space on the Top floor of Old Brewery Yard in Bread Street. In the studio you will find inspirational drawings, illustrative characters and many forms of canvas from skateboards to prints along with skin.
Marianne specialises in colour, cover ups and dotwork and often takes inspiration from the sea. Next year she will be producing a Graphic Novel as part of her professional development. The galaxy (pictured) was a personal reflection on someone’s life events.
Marta loves using lines, detail and mandala exploration in her tattooing. As an artist she is using studies to further develop her drawing. She experiments with different approaches to client’s ideas, an excellent example of this is Lenny, Morgan’s whippet (pictured).
Studio opening times in the lead up to Christmas are Tuesday to Saturday 11-5pm.
