Clare Keton – a renowned Melbourne tattoo artist – runs a successful tattoo studio in Melbourne’s west. Clare offers high quality custom-designed tattoos for clients travelling far and wide.
While juggling her busy studio with other art commitments as well as raising her young daughter, Clare found setting up her own studio to be a significant career milestone.
“It was a natural career progression when I decided to go out on my own”, Clare explains. “I’ve travelled the world to build my tattooing knowledge. I’ve worked in some amazing locations, but setting up base in Footscray has been very rewarding”.
“The area itself is so diverse and there is a real buzz about Melbourne’s west. The close proximity we have to the CBD is also a great advantage for clients on the other side of town or those interstate.
“I have trained with some of the world’s best artists, but there is something personally rewarding about setting up your own studio and building your own brand”.
“Starting my business in Footscray has allowed me to establish a better work/life balance. I am able to pursue my passion while spending time with my young family.
“I also have full control over the tattooing experience for my clients. I’ve designed a studio space that is calm and serene and very private.”
“The western suburbs community has made me feel very welcome and have been great supporters of my business.”
Clare will be attendeding the Footscray night market which will be held every Thursday night in November. Clare will be present during each of the markets to showcase her tattoo work and talk to the public about tattoo designs and inspirations.
While she won’t be tattooing during the market, locals can make appointments at her studio.
“I am excited about being part of the market. So many exciting initiatives are being driven from the western suburbs at the moment and the rest of Melbourne needs to know about them”, Clare explained.
“The night market is perfect timing for me. I’ve had a really busy year and now I am planning for 2017. I tattoo by appointment only. So it’s really important that customers book in advance.
“I am looking forward to meeting some locals at the market and would love to welcome them back to my studio”, Clare explained.
