Born and raised in Germany, Myra Brodsky grew up with an interest in drawing and painting. Roughly 10 years ago, she moved to Berlin to study visual communication at university, which is where she fell into tattooing by accident.
In 2008, a friend at art school gave her a tattoo machine, where she first tattooed herself. Over the next four years of practicing and growing, she developed her own illustration and tattoo style, which combines details found in 1920’s Art Nouveau paintings with new school themes. In 2012, Myra opened her own tattoo shop, but after a few years decided that she preferred to spend time traveling and tattooing at shops all over the world. Since then, Myra has spent time creating tattoos in Amsterdam, London, Copenhagen, Paris, Zurich, Munich, Los Angeles, and New York.
A Vibrant Career
Myra has made many impressive accomplishments creatively over the past couple years- In 2015, Myra had her first solo art exhibition in Berlin, and in 2016; a pop-up at the BRIGHT Trade show for Berlin Fashion Week. Also in 2016, Myra Brodsky released her first book, containing tattoos and illustrations from 2011-2015. Her artwork was used for the design for Diesel’s “Loverdose Tattoo” fragrances. She has been featured in various publications, including Total Tattoo magazine, VICE and The Huffington Post, among others.
