Tina opened the doors of her workshop for us. Here she gives vent to her creativity, as her drawings exhibited on the wall clearly show. Here she also devotes herself to the art of tattooing. The young Sino-Swiss artist opens her heart to us as the interview goes on, and joyfully skips from design to tattooing, from tattooing to playing the cello, from the cello to engraving, etc.
As a child already, she would do a drawing every day, based on any significant event that might have happened during the day. Encouraged by her mother, whom she nicknames her “tiger-mum”, she decided to fully develop her diverse skills, and started to draw, play music, etc. At the age of 16, Tina told us, she “rebelled” and completely stopped drawing and playing music. Only 4 years later did she realize that she had given up on priceless skills, and from then onwards, decided to befriend her bow and pencil again.
