Stanislava Pinchuk, aka Miso, is a Ukraine multimedia artist who inks her friends with elegant home-made tattoos when working in Tokyo and Melbourne. The Home-Made Tattoos she create are both minimalist and quite simple which is quite stunning.

Instead of taking money for your home-made tattoos, shes prefers creative trades intead, stating:

“home-made tattoos for friends and friends of friends, playing with memory, space and geography turned back on body, all completed as trades.”

“So far, I’ve really just kept it as a trade system, and only for friends – it’s too important and intimate for me to take money for, at this stage,” told Miso to Yellowtrace. “A trade for what someone feels its worth – maybe they teach me a skill in return, cook me dinner, give me a book I would love, assistant work, whiskey. You never know, but everyone feels good about it, which I like. But more and more, I feel like it’s becoming a bigger part of my practice.”

Because of this her tattoos feel very personal and are seen as quite a wonderful gift, Besides inking her friends, Miso also does Street are and works with paper, cutting and pin pricking.
