Hey, my name is Kat Weir.
Originally from New Zealand and now tattooing in Melbourne, Australia with my lovely friends at Hot copper Studio.
I’m a multi disciplined artist and proud dog mumma.

WHAT’S A NORMAL DAY FOR YOU?

Yoga/walking my dog Schnitzel/work/Netflix and drawing (interspersed with a lot of eating and drinking coffee)

DESCRIBE YOUR TATTOOING STYLE IN THREE WORDS?

Cute – colourful – pop-culture

 

ASIDE FROM TATTOOING YOU’RE AN INCREDIBLE OIL PAINTER, HOW DID YOU GET STARTED
AND ARE YOU WORKING ON ANYTHING SPECIAL AT THE MOMENT?

Oh thank you! I started painting and drawing super young, but oil painting I only got in to about 6 years ago,
through my amazing painting teacher Erika Gofton at The Art Room in Footscray. She really made it all
make sense and now I love it so much! At the moment I’m working on a new top secret series,
it’s going to be a colourful fantasyland!

 

 

 

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN?

To read “Quiet’ – a book about being an introvert by Susan Cain. It sounds cliche,
but it actually changed my life and helped me understand so much about people and how we work. 

 

OVERATED AND UNDERATED??

– Overrated – sun dried tomatoes
– Underrated – glitter (it should be on everything)

WHEATHER IT BE PORTRAITS OF BEYONCE, LESLIE KNOPE OR KIMMY SCHMIT YOU’VE TATTOOED A LOT
OF STRONG AND EMPOWERED FEMALES. WHO INSPIRES YOU?

Those three are probably my biggest famous inspiring ladies, ( plus Kathleen Hanna! ) but all the awesome babes that I work with
are the strongest, most talented, wonderful and inspiring people I know.


 

 

BIGGEST PET PEEVE? 

Disrespectful people

 

WHAT WOULD 16 YEAR OLD YOU SAY ABOUT YOUR LIFE RIGHT AT THIS SECOND?

Holy shit! (hopefully, haha)

 

FAVOURITE MOTTO, LYRIC OR PHRASE?

I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want!

 

WHAT’S A MOMENT IN MARAUDERS LIFE THAT’S TAKEN YOUR BREATH AWAY?

When I finally got my puppy, I had been waiting since I was 7 years old for that moment!
