Marta Slawinska is a Polish illustrator and tattoo artist based in Berlin. Her tattoo art activity is done under the pseudonym of Axel Ejsmont.
Axel’s work oscillates between visual minimalism, abstract geometrical ornaments, and conceptual art. Her tattoos are based on symmetric patterns shaded with black and gray dots reminding of various influences, like Persian rug designs or Indian tribal patterns.
Although minimalistic in style, her tattoos are often created with combinations of repeated geometric shapes, sometimes overlapped and interlaced to form intricate and complex patterns. Minimal animal sketches, graphic lines, and splashes of color are also portrayed in Axel’s designs.
