The interview and article in Australia Inked magazine in January 2011 celebrates Claire being the creator and driving force behind the annual Rites of Passage tattoo festivals in Melbourne.
The interview highlights Claire’s lifelong interest and passion for art and her philosophy of tattooing.
For Claire the practice of yoga and meditation compliments her artistic lifestyle promoting concentration, peace of mind and connectivity to all that is.
The Ajna Temple tattoo studio is Claire’s base when not travelling. Ajna translates as the third eye chakra in Sanskrit.
The studio is located in the rainforest 35minutes outside of Byron bay where Claire tattoos from solar power and tries to use as many earth friendly products as possible.
The studio promotes a peaceful environment for customers where they can connect with their ideas easily during the tattoo process.
Claire is constantly traveling to guest spots and tattoo conventions, feel free to contact her and see where she will be next.
