Video: Valerie Vargas Profile for Tattoo Age - Part’s 1 & 2

Tattoo Age is back with season two and they start things of with artist Valerie Vargas. Valerie grew up in Scotland, but has lived and worked in London for the last five years. You can find her at Frith StreetTattoo in SoHo, where she's known for doing the prettiest "lady heads" in the world. Valerie has only been seriously tattooing since 2007, so she's proof that talent and hard work will never fail you. In part one we are introduced to Valerie and get her back story featuring interviews with her fellow Frith Street artist and boyfriend Stewart Robson as well as Stafano C and shop owner Dante DiMassa. Valerie briefly discusses some of her influences hailing from not only the tattoo world but also from her childhood love of Disney.

In the second video we get a closer look at Frith Street, Valerie also gives us insight into what it took to develop as a tattooer, and why London will be home base for the foreseeable future. Check back for a third and final video in the near future.
