TATTOO ARTISTS IN MOTION, PART THREE: MAGIE SERPICA


This entry was posted in Hue Extra and tagged , , , on by .

Magie Serpica, Illustration ’07, is co-owner of Milk and Honey Tattoo on Castleton Avenue in Staten Island, NY. Here she explains how cover-ups are done.

When tattoos get old, they begin to fade and warp, or they no longer represent a person’s values. Serpica applies a new, bolder tattoo atop the old one, so that you’d have to look really closely to see evidence of earlier work.

This is part three of Hue’s video series on alumni tattoo artists. Don’t forget to watch parts one about Victor Modafferi of Bullseye Tattoo and part two about Johann Florendo of Mean Street Tattoo!

    “When washing your tattoo you may see some coloured pieces of skin flaking away, but this is completely normal during the washing process as long as you’re not being too rough”
