We wanted to bring the people at Studio Malm closer to you, so we started a short blog series called “Closer Look”. We interview people – resident artists, guest artists and many more – that make Studio Malm the amazing place it is! 🙂

This time we’re going to introduce Izabela Emert to you. She is an excellent tattoo artist from Łódź, Poland, and will be guest spotting at Studio Malm once again in December.

This would be your second time guest spotting at Studio Malm. How did you find us? What got your attention?

I had been following Torsten and Kätlin on Instagram for quite some time already. I love the tattoos they had done & I really wanted to see how they work. This pushed me to find the courage in myself to contact them & to try to do my first guest spot abroad. I am beyond happy that I took that step! 🙂

What do you like the most about guest spotting at Studio Malm?

First I would like to say that the atmosphere at Studio Malm is fantastic. The studio itself is impressive, and the people there even more so.  Torsten, Kätlin and Erika are so kind and helpful that I immediately felt at home.

I loved seeing that hygiene is at the highest level & that expect the same level from every artist and client. That is a huge plus for me as an artist.

How would you describe your style of tattooing? What inspires you the most?

I would describe my style of tattooing a mix of dotwork with black&grey realism. I feel good in dark themes (skulls, portraits, animals), flowers, mandalas and cartoons.

I have always seen Goraj (@gorajtattoo) and Aleksandra Kozubska (@kozubskaola) as my biggest inspirations.

Is there anything you would like to say to the readers?

I recommend Studio Malm with all my heart. It is one of the best places to get a tattoo. I can’t wait for my guest spot in December. See you soon in Tallinn! 🙂

Izabela Emert will be guest spotting in Tallinn, Estonia at Studio Malm from 7th to 11th of December 2020.
