Cindy is a professional tattoo and piercing artist. She grew up in Bloemfontein and relocated to Durban when she was 16. Art was one of her favorite subjects at school and it has always played a big role in her life. After obtaining her degree in Media and Communication, Afrikaans and Nederlands, she realized her true passion is art. Cindy’s favourite styles are whip-shading, colour and watercolour pieces and opaques. “The art of creating unique designs from the time I get to meet with my clients to when I hand them their custom piece, once the tattoo is completed, is one of my most rewarding things. They say do what you love and love what you do and I am so grateful that I can do that.”
