Hi everyone ! My name is Lucas Lua, I'm a Brasilian Tattoo artist currently living in Melbourne (Australia)
Designing is something that I take very seriously since my childhood. In my adolescence I had a blast painting with watercolors and since then art became my greatest passion.
In 2014 I decided to start tattooing which opened my mind to many new possibilities. With fine lines, stippling and geometric shapes I like to mix Black Work with a touch of intense colors in my tattoos, this causes a very beautiful effect that caught my attention very much.
I'm very happy to be invited to take part in the Inked Soul, as a tattoo artist I've been in contact with the deepest feelings of many of my clients which made me see the amount of people that surfer from mental disorders and the consequences of this on they lives.
I have been working in a a project to help people cover self-harm scars or incorporate them into a design, taking away the stress of financial burdens. It is for anyone who may be struggling with their self worth and identity due to the memories and stigma that their scars may bring. Tattooing overs scars can help to bring a new meaning to the area/experience and help aid healing for that person, helping turn trauma into something magical. A new tattoo with this reminder could help to prevent possible future self-harm.
