THE SELF-TAUGHT PHOTOGRAPHER MADAME BURAKA

The Self-taught Tattooist And Photographer Madame Buraka

If you’ve got a fascination with tattoos and an Instagram account then you’ve most likely heard of Madame Buraka and her work.


A fast-paced lifestyle leaves her trekking the globe, inking customers wherever she lands – mostly on recommendations from whoever she’s tattooed last. “The first half year that I began tattooing was just like a snowball system. Whoever was getting tattooed was bringing me onto a new path. I would meet these kids from London in Berlin who would recommend me to go to London and tattoo there. Then someone from London would be like, “You should go to New York, there is this guy who wants a tattoo of yours”. So I would go to New York, tattoo there and come back. I’m like a travel tattooist – sometimes I stay three months and sometimes I just get bored and move on.”
