Lileen van den Berg


How and why did you become Tattoo Artist?
I’ve always loved art and creating things. After high school I went to go study LLB Law at Tuks and it wasn’t a life I could imagine. So I dropped out and started my tattooing career. Best decision ever.

What attracts you to the industry?
It intrigues me that I can create an art piece on someone’s skin every day, and get paid for it. It’s the one place I can be myself and live my dream. I’ve met so many amazing people and I’m so grateful to be able to be a part of it.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?
I’d say black and grey realism. I love doing anything realistic, but artsy portraits are definitely my favourite. I do want to get into some more colour in the future though.
