A Bit About Me
My name is Elaine Castro but I call myself Lainey. It's 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.
By the way I am Brazilian and I came to Ireland to learn this universal language. Before arriving here 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 in more than 8 different places including my own clothing brand that created themes related to social and ecological issues inviting artists to participate of the fashion collection.
After trying so hard to survive and not being able to do it financially speaking and feeling on an island far from the big world, I decided to say goodbye to Brazil and explore Europe. Arriving here, in 2016, I worked on several places, among them, taking care of the elderly until I had an idea in the middle of the night to buy a tattoo machine and start to study and practice by myself. 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.
Love to create, feeling to tattoo.
