Greta Riva was born in 1990, she graduated in 2009 in graphic arts at the P. Toschi artistic High School.
She always loved drawing freehand, in high school’s years she attended the studio of the graphic designer Augusto Vignali. There she approached digital techniques for the first time and learnt how to combine traditional techniques with those ones offered by the new technologies. The results are different prints, some taken by the Japanese masters, others inspired by the LIBERTY period. ART NOUVEAU will influence her style for the rest of the years to come.
After high school she started working in different stylistic studies as fashion graphics, but soon she realizes that it is not her way. In 2015 Greta began to interest by the tattoo world and started the apprenticeship at the “Il Rosso” tattoo shop, and after almost two years of theorical and practical studies on designing and tattoos’ techniques, she officially became part of the staff. She always tries to improve and evolve, her tattoos are usually inspired by FLOWERS (and NATURAL world in general) that also are her favourite subjects. Vivid colours and delicate nuances are the characteristics that make the WATERCOLOUR her favourite style and the one she wants to specialize in. Every tattoo she works on is the result of her research according to the personality of the customer. Her original and creative way to draw help her to pass from graphic and masculine solutions to other ones more elegant and delicate.
