Vegeta, the Brazilian tattoo artist, has had more than 1.3 million followers on Instagram, according to her Instagram account.
Her followers include athletes like Brazilian soccer player Neymar, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, and actor Ryan Gosling.
But it’s her work that has earned the tattoo artist an increasingly loyal following, particularly in the United States.
“I think it’s great that the tattoo world is open,” she said.
“When people see the tattoos, they can’t imagine not having one.”
Vegeta said her Instagram followers are attracted by her unique style, which she says draws inspiration from her “vegetarian lifestyle.”
“I don’t have any animal friends, so it’s like a really exotic lifestyle,” she explained.
“The most amazing part is that they all come from different cultures.”
For example, one of her followers is from China.
“It’s like being from another planet.”
She has also received praise from her fans for her work, including an Instagram photo of her holding a pen in front of her tattoo of a flower.
“Sometimes I get so many reactions, and it’s just like, ‘You know what?
I can do this too,'” she said, adding that the support has been “overwhelming.”
Vegetas Instagram page has over 11,000 followers.
