About artist

Karla Rosales is a freelance tattoo artist currently based in Cebu City. She finished her Nursing degree in Silliman University, where she first experienced Dumaguete’s art community. She is currently a fourth year medical student at Cebu Institute of Medicine.

Her tattoo works focus on black and gray, fine-detailed linework.

She recently started experimenting with paint again during the quarantine, with her works heavily influenced by self-reflection and the subtle undertones of human relationships.

Karla hopes to further explore the connection between art and medicine as complementary forms of healing.
