Meet Tslil Tsemet of Ink by Tslil – Costume Tattoos

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tslil Tsemet.

Tslil, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started painting and drawing as a baby, and since being an artist can be challenging to make a living. I started tattooing when I was 17, I was living in Israel at the time, and it wasn’t very popular back then. I started tattooing professionally five years ago. Now, doing it in private studio in Downtown Los Angeles.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The tattoo industry can be a hard place to get in to, and as a woman, people might have weird expectations from you when you are an apprentice or working for them, so it is always super important to put boundaries and to stand up for yourself.

Ink by Tslil -costume tattoos – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m an artist, I show my art in many exhibitions, and tattooing has been supporting me on only doing what I love, its a great balance since after painting in the studio all by myself for many hours I get to work with ppl and it’s usually very fun. It makes me happy to make them happy.

Now, I’m seeking mainly (but not only) female clients. I can do any style the client wants, but I specialize in engraving style tattoos, portraits, blackwork, realism, line work, and dote work.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I think success is doing what you love by letting is take you to all the places you want to be and to grow and connect in directions you want.
