Horror Vacui Tattoo Parlour, Bologna Italy

Matilde ThunderMonkey was born in 1996 in Bologna from a graphic designer mom and a decorator dad. Inevitably she graduated from the Art School where he acquired skills in painting techniques, particularly in line drawing.

She approached the world of tattooing doing the first one on herself. Fascinated by the idea that tattoos express an art form, she began to approach the technique, first as a self-taught, later attending a professional course for tattoo artist resulting in an European qualification.

Her style is inspired by two contemporary tattoo artists: Rebecca Vincent and Susanne K├Ânig, both specialized in blackwork.
