Odist Tattoo: Heather Lefebvre's Art Portfolio

Heather Lefebvre of Odist Tattoo creates artworks dealing with a variety of subject matter, from the dark and macabre, to the familiar. The artist’s tattoo work includes a range of animals and objects in colour and black-and-white.

As we saw in our previous feature of Heather’s work with occult and animal imagery, the artist’s portfolio of personal artwork has a satisfying sense of cohesion. Many of the images in this gallery focus on a sense of symmetry in their composition, lending them the appearance of gilded book illustrations in an ancient manuscript – or perhaps a book of spells.

This symmetrical, heavy-outlined aesthetic sometimes carries into Heather’s tattoo work as well. Recent tattoos have seen the artist using an adaptable style, tailoring the amount of detail and the overall appearance of a work to the client’s specifications. Brightly coloured, stylized works sit neatly next to highly detailed and blended black-and-white pieces.
