Martha Pranckuviene is a relative newcomer in the bodyart world, having always been involved in Art in one way or another, she finally took the plunge 2 years ago and focused her goals and life around her tattooing and bodyart. She trained in Henna Tattooing in Camden in London in the late 90s, an influence that is still evident in her work today.
