JUDE LE TRONIK (JUDE VESVARUT)
I am a non-binary QTPOC artist/ tattooist, magical creature extraordinaire. I currently tattoo at Lilith Tattoo, Seattle, WA, Unceded Coast Salish territories of the Duwamish People.
I started tattooing in 2012 and over the years I have worked as a tattooist, concept artist, muralist, and illustrator in LA, Vancouver, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Seattle.
I view my tattooing practice as both an art that incorporates symbology magic and healing work. I want to make art that is approachable for everybody at all levels, be it purely aesthetic and/or spiritual. At its roots, tattooing in many cultures have been a mark of a rite of passage, as well as a powerful medium to empower, transform, and heal an individual through designs and images. It is a way for us to reclaim our bodies and to hold on our skin what we believe is beautiful and significant. I approach my collaborative process of tattooing in the light of this notion.
Drawing inspiration from natural landscape - fauna, flora - and magical narratives - mythology, folk lore, archetypes - I aim to connect my client's personal expression to the magic and beauty of the earth. I work only in freehand blackwork. This means you will not see any preliminary drawings before the appointment. This is a process that requires a lot of trust, the design will be sketched on to your skin with surgical ink pen. Freehanding has allowed me to create your concept and respond to your body in real time, which requires a lot of mindfulness. This way of working helps me keep my work fresh and the designs dynamic and flowing with the anatomical lines of your body.
If you are interested in working with me, please take some time to look at my portfolio and come to the process with an open mind and as a collaborative process instead of already having a single idea set in stone. I work to give you the best tattoo that I can with the style of art that I do.
At Lilith Tattoo, we aim and are committed to providing a safe, respectful, and inclusive space for people of all races, sexes, genders, bodies, classes, and backgrounds. I believe in anti-oppression politics and community building for those that are marginalize. In building such safe space for my clients, co-workers, and myself: racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ableism, and any form of bigotry/ harassment will NOT be tolerated in the work space we are sharing. If you have accessibility needs, please let me know in the email so I can make arrangements to accommodate you in the studio.
If you are interested in working with me, please email me at or use the form on the contact page.
Please include a brief description of what your concept is, where on your body, relative size, and budget. If I think we'd be a good fit and have an amazing time working with each other I will schedule you in for a consultation to further discuss ideas and details. My hourly rate is $200/hr and have a minimum sitting of 2 hrs.
AT THE MOMENT MY BOOKS ARE CLOSED UNTIL 2021, PLEASE EMAIL ME END OF DECEMBER FOR UPDATES ON GETTING A CONSULTATION
However, If I don't think that we'd be a good fit style wise or have concerns, I will definitely refer you to another artist in town that may be the right fit for you!
