I MAKE SKIN DOODLES
Tattoo artist - Illustrator
Hi! My name is Rali!
(actually it isn't, but the longer Eastern European version is only good for scrabble, so yeah, call me "Rali", or "your friendly babushka tattoo artist")
I'm a double graduate in 2D and 3D Animation with several years of experience in the industry.
(i.e. I drew so much I ended up with two degrees and then proceeded to make cartoons from 9 to 5)
I have always bathed in the world of illustration and animation, passionate about both drawing and tattooing, especially drawn towards the Trash Polka style.
In 2016, I was noticed by an experienced tattoo artist in that particular style, became his apprentice and adopted my name Ralkinz. Shortly afterwards, I left the world of animation to pursue my passion for the art of tattooing and joined one of the biggest Montreal tattoo studios.
(...and found that humans and ink make me way more happier)
In 2018, I decided to expand my horizons and pursued my career in a more private, creative-friendly and professional environment and founded XYZ Private Tattoo Studio here in Montreal, Canada.
My style is characterized by graphic black and red hand-drawn designs with a touch of an ink feeling. I love a wide range of subjects such as animals, floral, geek culture, woman faces, architecture, abstract and many more.
Overall, I draw a lot, laugh a lot and drink way too much tea.
(also, English is my third language and my brain is equally confused in all of them)
And that's my dog. I love my dog.
What people say about me anonymously in my yearly feedback survey
(because, let's be honest, my clients are the sweetest humans)
“Rali has such a unique style, you won't find this anywhere else! She's also very friendly and easy to talk to, so booking goes smoothly. I got a beautiful custom design by her, it cost exactly how much she said it would, it took exactly the time she said it would, and it healed perfectly. I highly recommend her for anyone that loves black and red tattoos, she's really mastered the craft.”
“Meilleure artiste qui m'as tattoué autant niveau skills, attitude/personnalité et juste l'expérience overall. Vraiment une personne trop gentille aussi.”
“Quick, friendly, professional.”
