A Bit About Me



Elaine Castro

Inspired by



Fashion Design

Private Studio

A calm and relaxing atmosphere

Tattoo Style

Black work

My name is Elaine Castro, but I chose Lainey because is a pretty new coinage and a very casual form of Elaine, so Lainey comes across as unpretentious and informal. It's a friendly, simple and pretty two-syllable name.

I am Brazilian, I was always connected to the art field, someone who is always looking for something new, who is fascinated by change, I am graduated in Fashion Design and I worked over 10 years as Stylist including my own clothing brand that created themes related to social and ecological issues inviting artists to participate of the collection.

I decided to say goodbye to Brazil and explore Europe in 2016. I worked on several places in Ireland. When I was in holidays in Portugal I had an idea in the middle of the night to buy a tattoo machine and start to study and practice by myself and some friends who are tattoo artists also supported me in my learning process. It was amazing the first time I tattooed, I felt like I had done this before. And here I am, since 2019, bringing the beauty of the nature and my inspirations to your skin.

I thank everyone for trusting me, and I guarantee that I will always renew myself and strive to be better each day at what I do.
