My name is Letícia but I like to be called Lelê. I'm an illustrator & tattoo artist and I have a studio in Lisbon called Ecotattoo Gardenwhere we only use vegan materials and biodegradable plastics. I'm inspired both by nature and by the special people who cross my path and I feel grateful to be able to do what I love in an eco-conscious way, respecting and honoring our home 🌎.
