Unless you're doing it yourself or you have a close friend who is doing you a favor, people have to pay to get tattooed. Not when you're dealing with Stanislava Pinchuck, aka Miso! This artist draws minimalist-style tattoos and splits her time between Tokyo and Melbourne. She doesn't have a set shop, and she doesn't just tattoo anyone - she currently is reserved for friends and family. She doesn't accept money, only a thoughtful act or a small favor. She thinks that what she does is much more special when it doesn't revolve around money. “A trade for what someone feels its worth – maybe they teach me a skill in return, cook me dinner, give me a book I would love, assistant work, whiskey,” she explains. “You never know, but everyone feels good about it, which I like. But more and more, I feel like it’s becoming a bigger part of my practice.” Miso's tattoos are often inspired by geography and space and are placed in inconspicuous areas that can usually be hidden by clothing or missed by the inattentive eye. But, according to the artist, these tattoos are much more about the exchange of art and love than anything else.
