Tati Compton’s artistic world of hand poked tattoos is a mystical dream full of celestial beings and erotic figures. Her amazing graphic style has influenced the Los Angeles scene through her incredible artworks for bands such as Fuzz, Ty Segall and Meatbodies
Glad to have you here with us on Visual Satiation
1) Please introduce yourself!
My name is Tatiana but I go by Tati.
I’m from San Francisco, been living in London for the past 3 years and just moved to LA.
All of these guys are my buddies.
Ty got introduced to my work from the Culture Kids insert and asked me to do Slaughterhouse. Everyone was really stoked on it and the reception opened me up to be willing to do more.
When I went to go see Fuzz’s 1st show I was really inspired and went straight home to draw.
That’s where the first Fuzz cover originated.
It’s been a blast working on every album because I just listen to it on repeat and draw.
3) What’s your background and what current kind of themes fascinating you the most?
I got over school really fast and went traveling for awhile, worked a lot of odd jobs for a long time.
At the moment erotic tattoos are the most intriguing to me as they still seem to be a bit taboo or shocking.
4) What do you do when you’re not drawing or tattooing?
Lying in bed hopefully!
5) Are there any other bands that inspire your art?
6) What’s your favorite cocktail?
Whiskey & water – bourbon only
7) I give you one minute to sketch a portrait of yourself. 3, 2, 1, go!
I can’t draw that fast haha!
