Dumitru; Dark Imagination In The Making:
Dumitru is rather new on the tattoo scene, having only tattooed for 5 years. But he has already made quite a lot of progress, as can be seen in his awesome tattoo work. He might still be finding his style, despite his love of realism, horror and fantasy. Yet Dumitru has already opened his own studio in Mannheim, Germany, just last year.
1. Where are you from? What age are you? and how long have you been tattooing for?
2. The name of your current studio and where is it located?
1.and 2. My name is Dumitru “Mirel” Todirica , I was born on October 25, 1984 in Piatra Neamt-Romania. I started professional tattooing 5 years ago…and about 4 years I live in Germany. Last year I opened my own shop : Mirel Tattoo Art Gallery in Mannheim,Germany.
3. How would you describe your style of tattooing/the style of your tattoos?
I do Color realism, horror and fantasy. I still working to find a style…
4. What is it you love about that style?
I don’t reached the level to have a specific style…..but I work really hard for this and I hope that in one day I will find it. Its hard to say personally something about my works …almost of the time I just have a few minutes of satisfaction after their finished, and later I just get self critical and don’t like them anymore. I like more horror stuff, blood…crazy stuff that’s ‘’touching’’ people heart J and anti system messages.
5. What is your favorite thing about being a tattoo artist?
The first its that I can travel everywhere, see a lot and meet many people, and second its to be free,my own boss…
6. What got you into tattooing?
My story is a little bit different then others’…I started tattooing at 15 years old on myself, with a self made machine, because I liked and wanted just to have them on me. In this time I never thought that this will be the road of my life. It became a job 5-6 years ago…when I decided to concentrate only on this.
7. What is your favorite tattoo you have ever done or seen?
My favourite from what I haved done its that one with police officer in chain… because its proper for the times that we live…
8. Do you have a dream tattoo, that you want to do on someone in the future?
I have many stuff that I will like to do….its not only one….why?…because it will express for sure what I want.
9. Do you have any future plans, you would like your fans and the readers at Mediazink, to know about?
I have plans to travel more…to make me more known….to tattoo more people…I think its enough.. And about travel I think its America first on the list….
