my favourite instagram accounts / pt II

Det är måndag och spöregn och livet är ändå helt ok här i London. Förhoppningsvis känns det lika ok nästa måndag när vi vet om UK röstat ja eller nej till att stanna i EU…

Hur som! Jag forsätter mitt mission att göra instagram till min bästa app igen genom att bara följa awesome människor. Här är den andra delen i mina favoritkonton:

It’s Monday and pouring down with rain and despite that life in London feels pretty ok. Maybe it won’t be next Monday though when we know whether the UK will vote yes or no to the Brexit…

Anyhow, I continue my mission to make Instagram my favourite app again by only following awesome people! Here is the second part of my fave accounts:

don’t ask me why but there is something disturbingly satisfying with lush green on a pink background, and 39k people seem to agree with me

babe of the month | tattoo artist tatiana kartomten

Babe of the Month is a monthly interview series created by me Linn Wiberg to promote inspiring women online.

Interview-with-Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-poke-tattoo-artist

Tattoos are nothing new and not much of a controversial statement any longer. Most of us surfing the online universe tonight are probably doing so with one regrettable tattoo or two on our bodies. I for one had a friend eternally etch in a wonky Harry Potter sign with a needle and ink on my arm, 4am on a drunken night. What is new is how the world has grown to respect these ink embellishments as works of art, at least the once who deserve it. And some truly are.

Tatiana Kartomten, a badass Californian tattoo artist and illustrator, is one of those who has pioneered in making stick and poke tattoos a respectable art form. The 27 year old, originally from San Francisco, has decorated her friends’ skin for years but only started tattooing professionally last year. Since however, her success has been exponential. With several album art works for bands such as Ty Segall, an Instagram following increasing by the hundreds every day, and appointments fully booked for months ahead, the high demand for her detailed designs shows no sign of slowing down.

Well, of course I wanted to pick her bewildering brain a bit.

Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-Poke-Tattoo-Artist-interview

Hi Tatiana, thanks for having a chat with me! Where are you right now and what are you up to?

Hi, I’m in bed chillin’ with Alejandro Jodowroskys ”Where the bird sings best”.

 

I obviously think you rock, but for those unfamiliar with you, could you describe yourself?

I’m from the Bay Area in California and I support being open minded and questioning everything.

 

How come you started doing illustration and then stick and poke tattoos?

I’ve always drawn since I was a kid and stick n’ pokes came about when my friends and I were hanging out getting drunk etc.

Ty Segall – ‘Slaughterhouse’ illustrated by Tatiana Kartomten

Proudest moment/project?

Doing the ‘Slaughterhouse’ cover, because it was an honor to be asked to do it and it was awesome that people actually liked it.

Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-Poke-Tattoo-Artist,-interview

What’s the weirdest request you’ve received?

Haha a little stick n’ poke butt with a dick ‘n balls you could see hanging down. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of it!

You must meet a great deal of interesting or perhaps weird characters through your job. Do you have any strange moment you could share?

My favorite was when I wasn’t tattooing but working at Wasteland in SF and we ”caught” this motorcycle cover magazine babe screwing a dude in our photo booth with our roller skates on.. so funny.

How do you deal with assholes professionally?

Tell ’em who’s boss!

12317885_1660173114261835_342604393_n

If you got to tattoo anybody, who would you pick and what would you give them?

Hmm.. My name on my boyfriends ass.. haha just kidding.

 

What’s your best tip for getting out of a creative rut?

Smoke a joint and/or relax.

tati cactus

You’ve done illustration work and album covers for musicians like Ty Segall and mentioned that music often influences your art. What would your life and art look like if you never got to listen to music ever again?

I’d probably die or be miserable.

 

You recently reached over 45k on Instagram, congrats! Let’s say you were able to gather the entirety of your followers, what would you do with them?

Whoa that would be super scary… I only do good in really small groups where everyone knows each other well. Our brains are only supposed to get to know around 200 people or something like that. If that did happen though I would get everyone together at a huge outdoor movie theatre or something and watch ”Cowspiracy”.

Which track do you have on repeat right now?

Jack the maggot” and ”Silent sits the dustbowl” by Fuzz II

This feature is about highlighting inspirational women so I’d like to know who are your biggest girl crushes are and why!

Emily Epstein cause she’s a mega babe drummer, Ruby Quilter and Tamara Santibanez cause they are wicked tattooists, Reba Maybury cause she’s on fire! Otherwise I’m not telling who my real girl crushes are.

Any final advice for all aspiring kickass women out there?

Keep it real.

BABE OF THE MONTH // INTERVIEW WITH DJ HANNAH FAITH

Babe of the Month is a monthly blog series created by me to promote inspiring women online.Interview with Hannah Faith Dj Selector Soulection

This month I’ve managed to grab the talented Hannah Faith, a 21 year old selector from London who creates insanely soulful mixes and divine imagery. I first came in contact with her when studying at London College of Communication in 2013 and since big things has happened to her. She is signed to the LA based label Soulection and has in just over a year received over 1 million plays on Soundcloud. There is an aura surrounding Faith that shines through in all her work. On her twitter and instagram you can find her interacting with and encouraging fans all over the world and it is impossible not to fall for her.

We had a late night email chat about working with women, and her philosophy ‘Create to Inspire’, and yes it was wicked.

Hello babe, thanks for taking time to chat with me! How has your day been?
My absolute pleasure!! My day has been beautiful, spent my Sunday with my Mother which is always precious to me as I don’t get to see her much.

You are a dear friend and a huge inspiration both in creation and attitude. For those who don’t know you can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am an Artist, Love Child, DJ – Selector, in love with all things art. I love to travel and touch the heart of others through my craft. Peace to the world.

Hannah Faith Babe of the Month

I’ve actually worked with you myself, even though it was during uni times which none of us enjoyed. But even back then it was inevitable to not noticed your glow and spirit. What have been the biggest learnings since?
Ha! Yeah it was a beautiful feeling when Soulection reached out and it’s been nothing but love since knowing them. They truly believe in my potential and although not officially signed to them I still feel a huge connection to them as family. This industry is very cut throat so you have to learn to differentiate those who care about the art to those who just want to make money from it. I have learned so much about myself and how important it is to always remember why you started.

What project are you most proud of?
A recent project I worked on was a mix of mine titled ‘IN BLOOM’. Alongside most of my mixes, they are carefully selected with melodies that reflect my thought process at the time. The journey of selecting is so important to me and I want every listener who presses play to feel what i felt.

Hannah Faith photography

Apart from crafting sick mixes adored by thousands you also have a big following in regards to your photography. What do you want to communicate with your work?
Love & Grow. We learn something new everyday, some are aware, some are not. Either way knowledge is infinite. In order to grow spiritually we must nourish our minds. Unity is important to me as without unity and love the world couldn’t possibly become a better place. We have to work with each other and empower one another in order to rise. Most of my images incorporate some sort of Nature, as to me Nature is beauty. Nature is God’s creation, nature is earth no matter how much you build concrete jungles. The trees, flowers and leaves will always grow through it.

Hannah Faith Soulection

You seem very spiritual. What part does that play in your life and in your work?
It helps me a lot. I feel there is a higher God who is watching over me and I feel ever so thankful. I’m blessed to have the right people with me constantly supporting and giving me words of encouragement. I’ve learnt to live life with no regrets and have faith in my abilities. Over the past two years I’ve really been focusing on myself and learning how to maintain a positive mindset. With that mindset I truly believe you attract the right things into your life. It can be so hard sometimes when things aren’t turning out how you expected, but there’s definitely a time and place for everything so I have to remind myself that patience is key.

 Hannah Faith Interview

We got to follow you on your trip to the states earlier this year, where you played some shows and captured incredible moments with your camera. Can you tell us a bit about what impact did that trip had on you?
What really affected me was the connections felt amongst ourselves and the people we met. There was always a positive spirit surrounding us and it was overwhelming, but also very beautiful.

Whenever I travel, my number one purpose is to connect with others. I love meeting new people and discovering about their life, what they’ve been through and what they’ve learnt through the years. I feel time and space make us who we are as humans. We live in a world now where people just want to take take take without getting to know their sources. History makes up our world to date and I feel it’s important that everyone learns this. You can gain so much from another person if you just listen to what they’re are saying.

Hannah Faith London Soulection

I feel like in this past year there has been a huge upswing in women claiming space and also being respected for their craft. I know you surround yourself and collaborate with a whole bunch of creative and inspiring chicks, all promoting and supporting each other. What do you like with collaborating with women?
Working with women is beautiful. I feel we all share the same vision and we live in a world now where social gender status is shifting. Women should never have a specific role in life. We are all human beings, we are all equal if we share a passion for something we should pursue it.

There are no rules on this earth – we are human, we are free. I’m not a feminist but I do believe in equality for ALL, so when I’m working with a group of women there’s such a strong energy amongst us. It’s empowering and it teaches other girls to pursue their dreams. Thats all I can be grateful for.

You mentioned in the interview you did with Cozy Mag that you felt very lost before you found your purpose in life, which was music. What would you say to girls going through the same thing now?
If it doesn’t feel right, do not pursue it. Keep experimenting and the right thing will naturally come to you. We’re constantly learning so much about ourselves. Read more, explore more and do not subject yourself to something if it doesn’t feel right for you.

Hannah Faith DJ

What’s your favourite thing about growing up in the age of Internet?
Wow, I have met a lot of great people from the internet. The internet is a tool – if you use it correctly, so much can manifest from it. You have to filter out the negative things and follow the right profiles, blogs and look at websites that will inspire you. It’s just important to filter out the good from the bad when it comes to the internet. I use Instagram a lot as a source of inspiration ans follow a lot of great accounts that visually look amazing and make me want to step my game up.

Ok, now you get to dream. If you could pick anybody in this world to collaborate with. Who would it be and what would you do together?
Erykah Badu for sure, she’s such an inspiring woman. I’d definitely love to do some sort of collaborative project that incorporates photography and music. I’m hoping one day we could bump into each other real random like South Africa, where we could share our stories and from there, bounce ideas. I feel we’re on the same vibe.

This feature is about highlighting inspirational women so I’d like to know who’s your biggest girl crush and person that you look up to
A female I definitely look up to is Solange Knowles, in all honesty I don’t think I would’ve pursued music if it wasn’t for her. The day I meet her, I’ll have a lot to say but also a huge thank you for having an impact on my life.

Hannah Faith

What projects are you excited for in 2015?
So much! I’m scrambling ideas for a visual mix I have in mind, that hopefully will be done by September at the latest. The girls and I are working on a project with VSCO at the moment for InBloom which is our collective of females, again highlighting growth and empowerment. It’s going to be a busy summer but I’m so sure everything will come into fruition.

 

Create to Inspire and let love rule,
Peace.

Hannah Faith
