BY BERNICE CHUA
Bernice Chua is one of the most talented tattoo artist in Singapore.
Bernice only use the highest equipment imported from US every single of her artwork are made in the highest hygiene conditions.
After working as a menswear designer for several years and completing her Masters from Bunka Gakuen University in Tokyo,
Bernice Chua returns to her roots in search of new ways to approach and rethink her practice as an illustrator.
Curiousity and a piqued interest led to an tattoo apprenticeship during which she saw the process as an intimate way for
her illustrations to “live”, to grow and to age with the person it was designed for, instead of yellowing away on paper.
Now she continually seeks to refine her craft, creating fine-line tattoos that resembles her illustrations done with more traditional mediums.
Believing that the act of tattooing is not insular and is an extension of art and design, she is currently collaborating with Manifesto, in which different lifestyle experiences can converge in the same shared space.
