How long have you been tattooing professionally?
What inspired you into the art of tattooing?
The first inspiration I had towards the art of tattooing was thanks to an artist friend who was tattooing an Italian man who would travel to Japan the following week. It was there that I understood that my art could be worldwide, and I realized that this is what I needed in my life.
Tell us about your preferred style of work.
My preferred style is definitely colors. I think there are endless possibilities to achieve so many things using different color patterns. It gives me the freedom to express myself though tattooing.
What other styles are you known for?
I don't know quite how to answer this question because I know all the tattoo styles.
What inspires you as an artist?
What inspires me as an artist is the freedom I have when making a tattoo, it inspires me to know that the tattoo I am going to make will last the whole life of the client and makes me do my best to leave a work of art worthy of its bearer.
Why should someone pick you for their next tattoo/to be their artist?
Because I'm super cool, lol 😝
Anything else you'd like for prospective to know about you?
I am a very committed artist and focused on my work.
