My name is Rachael Ainsworth, I was born and raised in Bournemouth, a seaside town on the southern coast of England.


During my childhood, my dad taught me how to draw and inspired me to follow his path to become a painter & illustrator myself. At school, I spent as many hours as I could in art classes and eventually, in 2011, I decided to move from paper to skin and started a tattoo apprenticeship in my hometown.


From this point, I worked at various studios in Dorset & Hampshire until I had the opportunity to move to Germany in 2014. After spending three very inspiring years in Berlin & Hamburg I have now relocated to Petersfield, England and opened my own tattoo studio,

La Graine.


I hope to see you there!
