Podcast #33: Lauren Roberts

Lauren Roberts (@LaLaLaLauren911) is a tattoo artist specialising in watercolour tattooing. She has developed a distinct abstract painted style, building up her portfolio and reputation as an incredible artist. In 2017 she opened a studio of her own, Adara, with business partner Josh Dixon, which has just completed its first successful year.

In this episode we discuss how you develop a style and advance your career, including the natural instinct to want to take on new challenges, we chat about working backwards to reverse engineer what it is you want in life, and we remind ourselves not to overthink things and get worked up about the small details.
