Deze vrouw gaf haar saaie baan op om spontaan tattoo artist te worden

Suze van As 15 mei 2018 Art

Van store manager naar succesvolle tattoo artist met tienduizenden volgers op Instagram: deze dame heeft het (eindelijk) helemaal voor elkaar.

De Turkse Mentat Gamze kon na haar studie Taalkunde maar geen baan vinden waar ze echt blij van werd. Ze probeerde zo veel verschillende banen, maar elke keer viel het weer tegen en werd ze verdrietiger en verdrietiger. Op een dag besloot ze spontaan ontslag te nemen zodat ze zich weer op zichzelf kon gaan focussen. Ze pakte haar tekenspullen weer op en herontdekte haar passie.

Zo vertelde ze aan Bored Panda: “I started to draw at that time to feel good and after a while I thought “I should turn this drawing into tattooes. They look good on skin!” I gave it a try at home and I figured it’s the job I want for all of my life.”.

Vandaag de dag tatoeëert Mentat standaard met een rood accent. Je ziet bijna altijd een rood bolletje ergens in haar tattoo’s, omdat dit voor haar hoop en moed symboliseert.

Have a wonderful life with your little buddy Connor??#tattoo #tattoostagram #dotwork #linework #ink #inked #artcollective #minimal #tattooersubmission #art #tattoooftheday #wowtattoo #customtattoo #tattooersgallery #tattooistartmag #skinartmag #thebesttattooartists #inklife #inkig #dövme #red #black #stars #sky #sun #nature #floral #bird #animal @tattrx @insigniatattoo @inspiredtattoos @inspiringblacktattoo

Mentat, over de betekenis en het verhaal achter het rode bolletje: “Suddenly I was out of that soul crushing work routine and I was so happy to do what I like. I wanted to reflect this on my work and I honoured this change with the red dot. I like black tattooes and I didn’t want to involve colors thats why a bright red dot was the best choice to catch a contrast with a pitchblack tattoo. It also created a contradiction to burdensome times in my past and It was to symbolise hope and courage.

My customers like the idea of the red dot and they started to give meanings to their own dots. It was health for one, happiness for another, a lost relative, a planet or just a sinking sun. Two years has been past since my first tattoo. During this time I tattooed hundreds of people from all around the world. I listened their stories. I have became part of their lifes and I helped them to carry their stories on their bodies with secret symbols.”

Mentat tijdens een tattoo-bezoek aan Amsterdam:
