My name is Dionne and I create under the name ‘Punctured Artefact’ from a small (no tiny!) garden studio, on the edge of the Cotswolds, in the UK.

As you can see, I love anything inky. I work across multiple formats , but my ‘first love’ is creating art by tattooing onto leather. Alongside that, I create custom tattoo design , ready to wear tattoo ‘flash’ art, fashion accessories & paper products.
With a background in fashion & textile design, patterns and flowing lines feature strongly in all the designs. Creating a fusion of organic & geometric designs.
I N S P I R A T I ON
My 'inkspiration' derives from combining natural forms & geometric art.
I have a never-ending love of symbolism, skulls, geometry, botanicals & flowers, anatomy & biology, science & mathematics, macabre & mythology, spirituality, space & the cosmos, entomology & geology, alchemy, clean lines & strong patterns.

It’s just me, the cat and the radio, so say hi if you want to! I try to answer all emails, when I can. When not in the studio, I can be generally be found, drinking gin, seeing bands, scribbling away, dreaming of, or planning the next travel trip!
I love to spend time thinking up new inky ideas & designs. We create every size of art, from little ink to large ink. We quote based on each individual brief. We don’t have a set price list, as we believe each project is unique. Get in touch if you want something that is unique to you
You can download ‘ready to wear’ tattoo designs from our flash pages. They are separated into themes. You can navigate to them using the flash dropdown menu or go to the flash landing page & clicking on the theme. I can also provide a quote to customise a flash design.
Own your own piece of original inky art. Tattooed onto premium leather. Each piece will be a limited edition or one off. No two pieces will be exactly the same, as they are all created by hand as original artworks. We have some available pieces, in the shop but we also create for individual orders or commissions. You can personalise your ink, with a message or leather label.

All the designs I create have a signature ‘Punctured Artefact’, style focusing on the blending of geometric & organic design styles.
I like to mix up the design styles and create an interesting combination.
| Nature & spirit inspired | Blend of geometry & organic | Sacred geometry | Angular and fluid lines | Connected shapes & patterns | Symmetry & asymmetry | Clean lines & shading | Complex & minimal | Angles & straight lines contrasting with sweeping arcs & curves | Clean dots | Symbolic & meaningful | Contrasting & harmonious | Dots & lines | Open & shade | Fluid & flowing | Complex & minimal | Distinct & diverse |
If you like the Punctured Artefact style, then I will create a design you love!
The designs feature clean lines. They are created with a combination of digital (vector) & hand drawn art. They include stand out lines and small fine details. The art has a clean, light, complex yet minimal quality.

My designs are created using the pointillism or stippling technique. Shading is created through the layering up of tiny dots. Open areas (no dots) contrast with areas of graduated dots (in shade & density) The art has a light & clean quality.
It is really important to create something that is unique & individual to you.
My designs are only created from my original sketches & ideas. In the signature ‘Punctured Artefact’ style.
