Artist gives her friends minimalist tattoos in exchange for books, whiskey, or life lessons

Most tattoo artists accept money in return for turning a person’s body into a canvas. Ukrainian artist Stanislava Pinchuk, better known as Miso, accepts books, lessons, food, and even whiskey instead.

‘So far, I’ve really just kept it as a trade system, and only for friends – it’s too important and intimate for me to take money, at this stage’, says Miso. ‘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. 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’.

I’d also love to ink my friends in exchange for whiskey, but I can’t guarantee the tats will be as beautiful as Miso’s works! I also can’t guarantee I won’t be drinking the whiskey WHILE giving a tattoo. You can find out more about Miso’s body art here.
