Hi guys, I'm Anne Teixeira (aka Anne Ink) regardless of the fact that I always loved arts in general, I graduated in Civil Engineering in Brazil and that gave me the chance to move to New Zealand in 2017 when I was offered a job position in the Construction Industry.⠀I've always loved my artistic and creative side, however, I never had the opportunity to pick arts as a career choice until I met Andre. I expressed my love for art and curiosity about tattoos, and he asked if I would like to learn tattooing in my free time. I had my own tattoos, but from there becoming a tattoo artist was a different thing. I accepted and soon after that, I had my first go with a tattoo machine in 2018, tattooing a slice of pork skin. I felt free and in peace.
I moved forward and did my first tattoo on Andre. From there I started thinking this could be the "why" I came to this Earth for. Unfortunately, it took me a good 30 years to embrace my artistic side and let it flourish to the point of choosing it as my profession.⠀I love the fact that as an artist, I'm able to combine my technical knowledge with my creative side to come up with a representation of my client's dreams, emotions, memories, and ideas.
I can be myself, the person who lives to create, and brainstorm ideas and projects, all whilst continuously seeking to learn and improve my talents.⠀I became a Tattoo Artist to empower anyone who dreams about being something else, other than what they were taught to be. I hope to inspire at least one person during my life to have the courage to pursue their dreams. ⠀Tattoos for me are a lot more than drawings. They’re connection, feelings, emotions, love. It’s a way to express how I feel inside.⠀
