Deepening The Ink Imprint With Bossatron
The art of tattooing has been on the rise in the Indian scene, with a growing sense of expression ebbing from vivid designs that add to one’s personal aesthetic and individuality. Pushing forward the ink-mania is the crafty and charming Bossatron who’s edgy and bold designs seem to have struck a chord with tattoo enthusiasts all over.
Komal, a 22-year-old tattoo artist who goes by the pseudonym ‘Bossatron’ reflects a freshness and funk that resonates in her art as well. As a child, there was a natural inclination and solace for the young creative in art and its varied forms, which is why upon enrolling into an art college, Komal found herself gravitating towards the world of tattooing.
The Chandigarh-based artist began as an apprentice in a studio tattooing her custom designs on human canvases and honing her precision with the needle. Delving into the passion, the pain and the hobby, Komal reveals etching a permanent memory onto people through her tattoos is what keeps her going and diving further into gaining mastery with the needle.

Talking about her creative process, Bossatron reveals that it all comes down to incorporating the client’s vision with her personal style of execution. This often includes creating shades with lines and highlighting the subject using vibrant contrast colours such as a dark, grungy red to ink one-of-a-kind tattoos.
Putting her art style into words, the artist describes it to be "sketchy, fun, dark, unique and free".
Making headway in a male dominated art sphere can be daunting, but Komal shrugs it off by holding her own as the uber cool tattoo artist with a youthful connect. Breaking stereotypes and smashing myths about the art's viability, she openly chooses tattooing as a career choice.

As a dedicated tattoo creative, Bossatron’s future plans include branching out in terms of her designs and vision as an artist and upping the cool quotient that custom tattoos are hailed for and cheekily hints at the possibility of Bossatron merch dropping in the future.
