I dreamed about tattooing when I was very young, so as soon as I finished art school in Kielce and quit my studies in London, I moved to Warsaw and decided that it was time to do it. Bartek from the Golden Watch Tattoo in Kielce (with whom I attended the Art High School in Kielce) helped me find a studio that would accept me for internships. I have been tattooing for 3 years.
If I remember well, it was an eye inspired by my drawing I made a few years before my studio internship. The tattoo was made for the son of a regular studio client. I will never forget it!
Certainly my style is growing all the time. I try new solutions all the time. Certainly it is a mixture of painting style with surrealism. Maybe a little abstract, who knows 😉 I tattoo quite short, but my style has changed over the 3 years since I have been tattooing for sure. At the beginning I started with black & gray and now I only work with colors.
A lot of people inspire me,, especially when it comes to making my dreams come true and working hard. If depends on tattoo artists, I have a lot of them who I like and they bring something value to my work technically.
I think Valentina Ryabova is one of them. She is an amazing artist. First of all, she is one of the few tattoo artists who start a tattoo with light colors and finished everything with black. Additionally, her artistic background is breathtaking
Do you have any memorable tattoo story or a customer that has stuck with you through all the time you have been tattooing?
I have two clients who remember my beginnings of tattooing and they still get tattoos from me. The coolest thing is that they have tattoos from me from 3 years ago and from now. The difference is huge! I like looking at my progress, if I can describe it like that 😉
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 graduated an art school, so art is close to me. I love painting and drawing. First of all, it allows me to develop more and not fall into routine. I love dancing too!
Of course I like! exhibiting and visiting. Both of them. First of all, there are a lot of good tattoo artists where you can talk with and get to know them. If depends on conventions in Poland, I like conventions in Warsaw, Wrocław and Poznań. I recommend it to everyone because of the artists and people.
I have a lot of plans for new tattoos. I would like to visit Damian Gorski in London and get tattoo by him. Sandra Daukshta also makes beautiful tattoos, so maybe she will make something for me. I have tattoos made by Sergey Butenko, James Artink, Julia Szewczykowska, Bartosz Sapuła, Ink by Adam and many others.
I would like to be healthy and happy in the future. No job will be fun without it. I would definitely like to continue tattooing and creating an art. It makes me happy a full of positive vibes. Also I have a lot of plans for travelling around the world.
