What about the trade first caught you attention and ignited your passion?
It is all for the love of art. Tattooing saved me in a way. I would’ve probably had a boring office job and I would’ve lost a big part of myself in the process. Tattooing allows me to do art full-time, and I thank every single client for helping me live my dream.
Where would you like to see your career take you?
I just want to progress and enjoy my art as much as possible, and hopefully be able to tattoo and art until I’m old. I would also really like to do more guest spots in different cities and countries, meet new people and experience new places.
What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?
I really love Neo-traditional/ Traditional. Traditional in itself is such a strong style that has stood the test of time and proven it can last and age well. Neo-traditional has that strength, yet one can still apply delicate lines and a more realistic shade, and still have a tattoo that’ll look good over time. With a wider colour palette and subject matter selection, you can create pretty cool Neo-traditional designs, and after those lines are done, it is a colouring book.
