How long have you been tattooing and how did you start your tattooing journey?

 

I’ve been a tattooist for about 4 years and I have liked to doodle since I was young, but I remember I was scolded a lot for doodling on notebooks or books. But it was so attractive to be able to scribble on the body.

 


 

Do you remember what was the first tattoo you did? If so, tell us what it was and for who.

 

Actually, the first tattoo I worked on was a self tattoo on my leg. The oriental flower that I gave to my close brother is my first tattoo work.

 


 

Please, tell us about your current tattoo style and how it has changed over the years.

 

At first, I did a lot of work mixed with ideas. Then I began to use tough, dirty expressions, and a year ago, I started to paint a lot of abstract, surrealist paintings.

 


 

Does anyone or anything inspire you?

 

Inspired by many painters and workers. But at the moment I open my door and enter the room, the most inspiration comes to my mind.

 


 

Are there any tattoo artists who are extremely admirable to you? If so who?

 

That’s too much. I respect all those who value unchanging values, do not follow others, and draw their own thoughts.

 


 

Do you have any memorable tattoo story or a customer that has stuck with you through all the time you have been tattooing?

 

I remember my parents who hated tattoos and getting tattoos from me recently. I was happy because I felt recognized.

 


 

Is there any art form that fascinates you also except tattooing? Maybe do you have any other passion or something that you really enjoy doing?

 

I like everything I do with my hands. Especially I like to make things that are useful in life or what I need. I also like to draw pictures on clothes I bought and wear them.

 


 

Do you like visiting or exhibiting at tattoo conventions? Would you recommend any of them?

 

I love both exhibitions and conventions. I like to participate in conventions in Southeast Asia because I like to play and chill. Utopia, indeed.

 


 

Any artist you planning to get tattooed by? Who has tattooed you already?

 

My body is already full of tattoos made by friends I met.

 


 

What are your plans and dreams? If you think about yourself in 10 years, what do you see?

 

My dream is to make people around the world recognize me. It would be nice to be famous by getting a tattoo, but I want to be remembered by many people rather than people who want me to be famous.
