Hey Rachel, tell us a little about yourself; where were you born, what do you like to do outside of tattooing?
Starting with a visual arts background and began to study yoga around the same time, as these worlds started to merge I began to see how the body can be an amazing canvas to express peoples visions. I go out of my way to make them feel comfortable, work closely with them to perfect their design and make them feel at home with honest and open communication that keeps you laughing. Do you feel that tattoo culture has gone mainstream with so many reality TV shows on these days?
Tattoos have definitely gone mainstream, however there are always ways to create new and innovate pieces.Tattoos going mainstream isn't necessarily a bad thing, I think it has brought more awareness to the meaning, skill and creativity of the art of tattooing. Doing a full sleeve a my Yoga teacher Eddie Modestini, which was a collection of yoga inspired images from ancient times in India for his 60 birthday.
Do you think any tattoo artist can do a cover up or is it something that requires proper and specific training to execute properly? Yes anyone can, but it definitely helps to know the tricks and skills so that it looks aesthetically pleasing and doesn't look like one sticker stuck on top of another. I would like to continue to merge my two loves of Tattooing and Yoga with the development of my new project Yoga for Tattoo Artists which is a DVD soon to be released that are sequences speci?cally design to balance the impact of sitting at a desk and working with a client in sometimes physically and mentally challenging ways. I spend a signi?cant amount of time with each client in order to incorporate all the images and symbols that they see in the vision of each piece. Doing Yoga at work at your desk is a great way to improve your posture, increase your focus and concentration and energize your day. All toys will go to Women helping Women, a local charity that helps children and families in need right here on Maui! Make an appointment with RachelG for Finger Friday on November 6th when select finger tattoo designs are only $25 each!! What an honor to be chosen and included, and to be asked about how she uses her passion to help change the world. The rainstorm last month caused us to have to postpone so have no fear you didn’t miss out on what is sure to be a fabulously fun night!
I own Body Alive Yoga and Movement Studio, which is next door to Exotic Eye, where I teach and practice several times a week.
I personally dont have it up on the walls in my shop because I prefer to do more custom work. I incorporated his only other tattoo which which was a 1” Om that was done by Lyle Tuttle in the 1960s.
Make sure you feel comfortable communicating with your artist and have lots of examples of what you are looking for.
The sequences I have designed (short samples of these will soon be available on my Youtube channel) are super easy to follow and even do right in your shop.
I feel that through this process the client then gets a piece that is not only deeply symbolic for them but leaves room to grow and expand as they have new things they want to add and incorporate. If a client comes to me with flash, i will definitely do it for them but am happy to work with them to individualize it so it is unique to them.
My wildest tattoo story has to be tattooing “What the fuck are you looking at Dicknose?” in typewriter font on a mans hand. Clearly driven, passionate, and uniquely talented, Rachel Gonzalez continues to persevere in a cut throat industry, and for the right reasons too.
His goal in tattooing is to be well rounded and proficient at all styles of tattoo related art.
From Black and grey, pointilism, to pinups, polynesian, color realism and sacred geometry, she is a jack of all trades. I prefer to do Sacred Geometry pattern work with influences from Indian and Asian art as well as botanical elements. It was in my first year of tattooing and my boss required me to do everything that walked through the door. Centrally located in Wailuku, Maui, Exotic Eye Tattoo is in prime location, attracting tourists and serious collectors alike.
Private, appointment only and intimate, Rachel gives her clients a comfortable and unique experience every step of the way.
