It’s to leave a mark, a personal mark of who they are and what can I be. It’s an art with a lot of respect, it’s a lifestyle.

I don’t have a particular tattoo that is my favorite. It’s like asking a father which son he loves most. Each tattoo is a story and a lesson for me, helping me to be a better person and a great professional.

Oriental tattoos tell a story, you can build complete pieces on an arm, leg or even full body with a lot of history and colour. I also love botany because I can bring an animal or a flower and show it from my perspective.

When i’m not tattooing, I like to learn something new; a language, a style, colouring, seeing the work from other artists to find inspiration. It’s a constant process that never ends.

People who are looking for an identity, how to reflect what they feel, who want to tell a story and who trust my work to help them achieve their goal.
