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

 

I’ve been tattooing since 2014. I’ve always had a passion for drawing since I was a child, during adolescence, body modification captured my interest, and finally, at the age of 24/25, I had the possibility to learn tattooing at a tattoo studio.

 


 

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

 

Of course! My first tattoo was a wisdom tooth on my friend.

 


 

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

 

In the beginning, I tried to do a new school but I changed because this style doesn’t work for me and I started to take confidence with blackwork 6 years ago, and I’m still doing it.

 


 

Does anyone or anything inspire you?

 

I try to take inspiration from everything around me like a movie, paint, comics but sometimes I find new ideas just going out for a walk.

 


 

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

 

Yes, I follow a lot of artists each for different reasons, but if I have to say one name – Guy Le Tattooer.

 


 

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

 

Some years ago I was tattooing this guy and in the meantime he was thirsty. He took the first glass and he drank everything… But that glass was the one that I used to clean the needle! I’m still shocked! I found some old clients/friends here in London and they continue to be my customers.

 


 

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? 

 

My other passion is all body modification. Not only tattooing but also scarifications implants, etc…

 


 

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

 

I like to visit tattoo conventions a lot and work there. For me, the most beautiful tattoo convention that I’ve seen but I’ve never participated is the London Tattoo Convention.

 


 

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

 

My plan is to be tattooed by Duncan X.

 


 

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

 

I never think about myself in the future but for now, I want to build my life here in London and do what I love for the rest we will see.
