Caro Ley's Tattoos
Has worked at
Vagabonding between European capitals and oscillating between queer theory and creative practice, Caro Ley has developed an approach to tattooing which is about empathy and presence, always questioning subjective sensitivities and body politics. Enjoying the privilege of a comprehensive apprenticeship, she takes pride in her technical skills such as soldering needles, which allowed for her style to broaden from graphic, minimal blackwork to texturized painterly compositions. Her interest in transfeminism has led her to study subcultural genital modification and its potential for reclaiming ambiguous bodies under supervision of Paul B. Preciado before coming to settle in Berlin in order to promote a queer kind of tattooing.
