Finally I can be myself and express my individual style in my own studio. Do what I love and give that to all the other Artists at VADERS.DYE. That is very important because only if you concentrate on one thing you can become the best at it. My interest in tattooing grew during my studies as a communication designer. Parallel to my studies I learned tattooing and after that I was sure to make it my main job and later on realizing my dream of opening my own Tattoo Studio in downtown Hamburg.

Drawing has always been a passion of mine, now I can immortalize my art under the skin wich ist the biggest compliment for me. I am very grateful for my job.

STYLE: DELICATE ORNAMENTAL

Melina’s style is ornamental, very delicate and clean. She is mainly doing outlines and loves to see her tattoos like fine jewelry. She is known for her very crisp work and perfectionism. Mostly of her motifs are constructed frontally and symmetrically. She doesn’t do bigger projects.

FAVORITES: MANDALAS

Ornaments in any form. Round, oval, square. On its own or combined with animals or other motifs. Preferably Melina likes to tattoo the inner forearm or hand tattoos.

NO GOES: TATTOOS ON RIB AREA AND BACK

Melina doesn’t tattoo the side of the ribs. This is due to the skin texture, which doesn’t allow Melina to work as perfectly as she usually does on all other areas of the body. In addition, symmetrical motifs are rather unsuitable, because they distort in the rib area when moving. One exception is small lettering in her unique handwriting. 

She is also not tattooing the back anymore, because of the skin and her posture while tattooing. the posture cause huge backache.

BOOKINGS: CLOSED

At the moment you can’t arrange an appointment with Melina. In July she will take bookings for the third quarter of 2018. Then you can apply for an appointment with her through our online form. Keep up to date on Facebook or Instagram to avoid missing the booking phase, or sign up for our newsletter. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee you an appointment with her as she gets more requests than appointments. The more you get into her and her style, the higher is the chance to get an appointment with her.

INPUT

When you send a request to Melina she will be pleased about some references. Some works of her, that you like the most or of other artists, who inspires you, so she can get an impression of your tattoo idea. You just need a rough idea. You don’t have to sketch anything out. A short text and that’s it.
