Ria Barrenechea is an artist and tattooer working from a private studio in Glasgow.

In 2011 she commenced her tattooing career in Surrey, England. Afterwards moving to Bristol, before settling in Scotland where she works from Aughras Eye Tattoo Parlour.

Predominantly self-taught, she is deeply passionate about creating custom one of a kind tattoos, sketching and hand drawing each design to scale, to fit the body uniquely and organically. Botanical and animal imagery being her favourite subjects, she is inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, natural history and illustrative lithograph prints.

Alongside her tattooing, Ria also produces watercolour and gouache paintings that are available to purchase in giclée print form on her BigCartel
