For almost a decade Argentinian artist Daniel the Gardener had a successful career as an illustrator, painter and performance artist, which has allowed him to travel the world for these jobs. In 2013 he changed direction to become a tattooist, starting on his own and then soon after getting an apprenticeship with Madame Chan and an opportunity to work with Julia Tobel for over a year in Berlin.
Presently working at Classic Tattoo Berlin studio, he is known for freehanding floral designs on his clientsâ€™ bodies. â€śI always had plants in all the places I lived. Two years ago, I finally moved to a flat with a big garden where I was able to learn and experience gardening for the first time.â€ť He loves to watch these living organisms bloom and die to fully understand the process and incorporate some of that vibe into his tattoos. â€śI like working with the idea of plants and flowers but not necessary having to represent them as they really are; now IÂŹâ€™m working on hybrid branches with a lot of different flowers coming from the same branch, or mixing petals (of different flowers) on one flower.â€ť
