I started selling art through Instagram.
It all started when one of my high school teachers asked me to design her a tattoo. She wanted a personal design consisting of a lion and a lamb. I posted a photo of the design on Instagram, and titled the caption “got asked to design a tattoo, can’t wait for her to get it”. My followers loved the post, and commented asking for me to design their tattoos as well. I was ecstatic and honored that people would want my design to be their tattoo. Soon more tattoo photos were posted to Instagram, followed by more requests. The thing with social media is, once you gain a little popularity, it starts to expand exponentially. I then started taking other requests like paintings, sculptures, and even did face painting/henna at parties. Through Instagram, I have been blessed with the opportunity to design CD covers, collab with other artists, and even sell art to people around the world! In all honesty, I am so touched by all the people who have encouraged me through Instagram. You all have no idea how much your kind words have inspired me to push forward with my art.
