Penuria is a tattoo artist from Cordoba, Argentina that has a unique style of lettering reminiscent of an octopus's tentacles or the roots of a tree. His work started in 2017. It is dark, ethereal and from the beginning it's been inspired by hip hop and hardcore music. He explained that art and music create its own aesthetic when combined. He also spoke with reverence to Norm whom he was also inspired by for his lettering style.
We asked Penuria a couple of questions to learn more about him:
◼️1. Do you work at a specific shop or privately?
(Text has changed since this interview was conducted) Penuria works privately, visit his Instagram to book a consultation.
◼️2. When did you start tattooing? What inspired you to start?
By becoming more engulfed by hip hop and hardcore music I realized how intertwined the tattoo world was to it. And so, with that my own aesthetic was influenced by it. Most of my lettering work is also inspired by Norm (may he rest in peace). Today I'm very thankful for the path I took with tattooing. I look forward to all there is to come.
◼️Penurias art can be found in many different forms from tattoo to canvas and skateboard decks; all of which he gives painstaking detail to. Very beautiful work all around.◼️

"I like to use bright colors because in the midst of chaos, having expressive colored art draws the attention and awakens those good feelings in people. My intention is to not only influence people in graffiti but also children who are discovering new things."
"Gosto de usar cores vivas porque, em meio ao caos, ter uma arte colorida expressiva chama a atenção e desperta esses bons sentimentos nas pessoas. Minha intenção é não só influenciar as pessoas no grafite, mas também as crianças que estão descobrindo coisas novas."
