While searching for another inspiring and interesting idea for a short film – I found Jeff Linares – incredibly talented peruvian tattoo artist based in County Galway (Ireland). I was lucky enough to get to know his interesting story and experience his amazing talent and rare style. This is Jeff Linares and this is his story:
Jeff Linares started off by sketching what he thought was interesting, rare and eye-catching. Few years later he began creating paintings of different themes and backgrounds. Thirsty for his work to become personal and last ‘a life time’ – he began creating ‘body art’. For some… his tattoos are a simple decoration. For others – they are a reminder of someone or a certain period of life. But for many – they capture a hidden meaning, a secret, something buried – but not to be forgotten. Something meaningful…
