Julian Siebert; Modesty and Mastery Go Hand in Hand
If you are into tattoos and don’t know of Julian Siebert, then you are living under a rock and are missing out on a master of the craft.
Some would argue this tattoo artist is too modest for his own good, since his pieces are truly awe-inspiring. His attention to detail is intimidatingly good, especially when thinking of his love of large scale tattoos, especially back pieces. One back piece that has impressed many, also because of the fact it adorns the back of the gorgeous model Makani Terror, it is truly a beautiful sight. The colors are vibrant and the composition of the piece is incredible! We are so happy that we here at MediaZink, got to interview this tattoo genius (even if he is very modest).

Indeed Julian is very humble and modest, like any great tattoo artist should be. He is grateful for his clients bodies and the opportunity they give him, so that he can create and improve his art on their bodies. It isn’t about the fame for him, it is all about doing what he loves and creating beautiful, awesome tattoos. His love for art truly shows in his work too, you must truly love art to have such an eye for detail.
