Profile photo of Color Realism Tattoo Artist Kätlin Malm

Kätlin Malm is an Estonian tattoo artist specializing in color realism. She has always been interested in different forms of art, especially how an artist can draw photorealistic images. Kätlin has been perfecting her drawing and painting skills for years. She strongly believes that you always have to keep learning to keep the best level possible; it is a never-ending road. She started getting more into the idea of tattooing and color realism as a tattooing style in 2014 when her boyfriend Torsten (now husband) suggested to try it.

Kätlin loves being a tattoo artist. The best part in her eyes is the lack of routine: there are new opportunities, and new people to meet and tattoo every day. She loves when her clients trust her completely as an artist. It makes her feel like the sky’s the limit when it comes to designing the tattoos. Kätlin loves working on bigger projects, because the client becomes like a part of the Studio Malm family by spending a lot of time together. There’s never a dull moment at Studio Malm.

Kätlin loves coming to work to Studio Malm because it doesn’t feel like work. She has built this place from the very grounds with her husband Torsten Malm. Kätlin feels relaxed and happy at the studio since the vibe here is carefree and cozy. If someone at Studio Malm can feel any bad vibes, then she will immediately clean the aura of the studio with her infectious laughter.
