She got her first tattoo as a young teen, and it was love at first prick. Tattooing for over a decade now, the Miami-based artist with Colombian roots has built an impressive, Slave ladyboy pussy portfolio. And, most recently, she became a new mom to four-month-old Deniro Roman Soto.
We caught up with Tatu Baby to talk about her career in body art, the differences between being a female, Latina Katherine flores naked in the tattoo industry back then and now, and life as an ink-slinging mommy. What was it about tattooing that inspired you to pick up a tattoo machine? When I was very young—I had just turned years-old—I got my first tattoo. When I saw the artist drawing the tattoo something clicked in me. So, why not tattoo? Shortly after, a friend of mine helped me make a homemade tattoo machine, and I took it just as a hobby.
What motivated the decision to go pro? Well, I tried a different career. I actually went to school for computer animation, but I guess it was the challenge of tattooing that I loved the most. So, it was something of honor and the challenge of it altogether. You mentioned making a homemade machine and working on folks when you first began, but how about when you first made the decision to go full time—did you seek out an apprenticeship from a professional tattoo artist in the industry, or did you continue learning on your own?
I was uneducated about how the tattoo industry worked, so, no—I never looked for an apprenticeship. It worked really well. The tattoo industry is mostly made up of male artists. Was it difficult breaking into the business as, not only a female artist, but also, a Latina artist? I felt like it was really difficult for me in a sense of having certain respectful clients and artists at [tattoo] conventions. One, I was very young. I was Hispanic, and I was a woman.
They just judged me off what I looked like, which was crazy because my work was as good as the portfolios they had at their shops. A lot of people gave me the cold shoulder. Aside from Pride, was there another artist at the shop that took you under their wing when you first started there? I was a big black and grey artist. I had already practiced a lot with it. It was Hector Arriaga who actually inspired me to do a lot of color. Working together we learned a lot from each other.
He definitely taught me a lot.
