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.

"I grew up as an art kid always drawing, sketching and playing with colours. As long as I can remember all my practice or references were usually from tattoo pictures which I would then draw or paint. Even when I was 12. I’ve grown up learning how to draw from those references all along so eventually i knew that tattooing is what i want to do from a very long time. It has always been on my mind."

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.

"I get to put my art on people’s body, they're my canvases. Simply put humans are my canvases - which is like a canvas with a soul. It's pretty cool."

What sets the young artist in a league of her own is her signature style of tattooing custom designs marred with edgy fonts and shades of red and black. 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".

"I only do custom tattoos in my style because why would anyone want the same design which has been done a hundred times? Every person deserves a unique custom tattoo on them which defines them because everyone is different. I usually ask people to tell me all the elements they want in their tattoo and from there i design it in my own style."

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.

Getting candid further about tattooing and its intricacies, the creative's quick tip for ardent tattoo lovers is to whip up their own renditions of art and designs instead of going mainstream with the current tattoo fad.

"The advice I’d give to ink enthusiasts is that make sure to explore more about what they want and what artist they require to get that piece. Do your homework well and refrain from getting the pieces you see on the internet a thousand times. Also listen to what the artist suggests cause they’re just trying to help; we value the importance of the piece you’ll have for the rest of your life. We understand it more than anyone else."

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.

"All I want to do is create more and give people a lot of cool tattoos that would give them a reason to be happy and confident for the rest of their lives."

From a cultural standpoint, tattoos have had great significance across various civilization. However, Bossatron defines what it means to be a tattoo artist in this day and age, revealing,

"My contribution to this current culture is to make art which is new to people and makes them challenge outdated notions and expand their horizons when it comes to the type of things and memories you can create with art. There’s much more to the art world (like tattoos) than just an outline of the thing. I just try to educate people about my style, help them get to know more, step into a new side of tattooing, accept more and be comfortable. That’s how people grow and the culture grows. For an artist there’s nothing bigger than helping people grow."
