Amalia Wendell is an experienced and talented tattoo artist from Long Island, NY. She owns her own shop, Royalty Tattoo, where she specializes in coverups and super clean line work. Today we’re profiling Amalia Wendell in our latest edition of Artist Spotlight.
Amalia has a versatile skill that is rare amongst tattooers – she gives no excuses or limitations to her work. Whether the client wants to do a new school design, a Japanese design, a coverup, their eyelid, or something never before done, she’s up for it. That’s an admirable trait for an artist of any kind.
We’ve all seen great tattoos before, but Amalia’s work strikes me because she consistently puts out A+ tattoos for all of her clients. Let’s check out some of her work;
While we were talking, Amalia admitted to me that she picks up the slack from her competition;
I do what most tattooers are afraid to do. I take on the cover ups that no one else will touch, one’s they call ‘uncoverable’. There’s no such thing as a tattoo that can’t be covered. I love when a client walks in and says they have been to 7 other artists and ‘no one will do it for me’. If we don’t do it who is supposed to? It’s our job to know how to tattoo any body part and rework or cover any tattoo.Amalia Wendell
