So As To Symbolize Hope And Celebrate Change Artist Put A Single Red Dot In Every Tattoo


Some tattoos create striking optical illusions on the skin while others are full-color masterpieces. But Mentat Gamze who is a tattoo artist has proven that with a minimalistic approach and a bold accent color, a stunning modern tattoo design can be gotten. There is a fine-line drawing completed in black ink that is inspired by natural world in all of her pieces. Also there is a red dot accompanying every eye-catching tattoo within it. The crimson mark is a consistent motif throughout her portfolio no matter who Gamze inks. The common bond all her clients share is its presence, as if they are part of an exclusive club. So, what is the reason for the red dot? It represents following your bliss and has a special meaning for Gamze. She realized her life “was not going the direction she wanted” after starting her working life as a designer. Afterwards she held a number of positions, but was miserable at each.  “I decided to quit my job because I got fed up,” she confesses. It was when Gamze taught herself how to tattoo that she discovered that is what she is meant to be doing. “I honored this change with a red dot because I wanted to reflect it on my work,” She explained. “It was to symbolize hope and courage because it has created a contradiction to burdensome times in my past.”

The idea of the red dot continued, and now her clients gave their own meaning to the mark. “It was happiness for one, health for another, a planet or just a sinking sun, a lost relative,” she recalls. “It’s two years now since my first tattoo. I tattooed hundreds of people from around the world during this time. I listened to their stories and I have become part of their lives. I have also helped them to carry their stories on their body with the aid of secret symbols.”
