She Fell in Love with Watercolor and Sketch Tattoo Style and We Fell in Love with Her

As Renata Henriques says, her world comes down to drawing, tattooing, cats and other more personal things and she considers herself a very discreet person. We can’t help ourselves but love this beautiful artistic soul. Henriques always loved to draw and paint from an early age, but her tattooing career started in November 2015. However, since the first tattoo, she was sure that she’s going to do this for a long time. “I started after the insistence of my boyfriend, also a tattoo artist, to teach me. Because I’ve been drawing all the time, he thought I’d be very good at tattooing and he was my “guinea pig” too.” At first, she did a lot of small and commercial tattoos, but as soon as she discovered watercolor and sketch tattoos, she started to focus on them, developing her style, doing some realism too. Now she works at True Rise Tattoo Studio, Brazil and already has quite a portfolio. We prepared our gallery with Henriques’ lovely tattoo pieces and you feel free to follow her Instagram Page.

“Since I was a child, I had a connection with drawing intuitively because I had no familiar artistic reference.”


Cat lady, indeed.


“The human figure mostly always enchanted me in drawing and I invented my real characters, faces of people with physiognomy, etc.”

“I was very curious, so I researched a lot and fell in love with the sketch tattoo style and watercolor.”

“I’m a very reserved and quiet person and this helps me with the concentration that tattooing demands.”


Perfect summer vibes.

“I love animals, especially cats and so I follow a philosophy of vegetarian food, trying to respect all animal life.”
