Sanya Olman lives in the jungle in Mexico.  She is fascinated by the ancient Mexican tattoo culture and is staging a revival, not only of the tattoos, but the rituals surrounding the tattoos also.

She has made her own tools and hand taps the ancient designs.  Here is an interview we did with her at the 2012 London Tattoo Convention, where she talks about her work, and has some interesting insights on the origins of tattoos and the spiritual aspects of receiving a tattoo.

She will be at the 2013 London Tattoo Convention.
