Manchester-based Long Time Dead artist Rebecca de Cadorette draws upon her background as a zoologist, botanist and historian to inform her practise as a tattooer. She creates tattoo designs rich in symbolism and meaning in blackwork and dotwork.
Rebecca began tattooing in 2012 after a chance meeting with a mentor. She has since exhibited art work, painting and live tattooing at exhibitions and art-battles in Manchester and has tattooed live as part of Manchester Science festival, taught classes in design for the body in colleges and run art classes for kids.
Rebecca specialises in working with clients on a deeper, kinder and more experiential level; respect for the vulnerability of the client recieving the tattoo and the trust of the client for the tattoo artist are at the forefront of how she tattoos.
The art work she produces is always rich with meaning and dotted with totems from the client's live reflecting their journey and marking their passage.
Long Time Dead Studio is an exclusive, private tattoo and art space in Stockport, south Manchester.
The services provided always include a consultation, fitting and adjustment and finally a private tattoo session.
