1st HeartbeatInk Tattoo Contest – The winner and her tattoo session.

Extras - Issue 9

HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine successfully accomplished the "1st HeartbeatInk Tattoo Contest", offering a voucher worth 150 € for a tattoo at Eightball Tattoo Studio. Our tattoo contest held through the official page of HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine on Facebook (www.facebook.com / Heartbeatink). Launched on December 24, 2013 and ended on January 13, 2014 . The entries were numerous and we would like to thank all the people who took part in our competition. The lucky winner that won the prize was drawn and it was Danai Makellaraki.


HeartbeatInk met Danai at Eightball Tattoo Studio on the day of her appointment and spoke with her during her three hour tattoo session by artist Niko Milo.

Danae is a student in Athens and this is her first tattoo. She told us: "This is my first tattoo! I was going to do tattoo anyway and I already knew what I wanted to get done. When I saw that I won the "HeartbeatInk Tattoo Contest" I could not believe it! I was very surprised and my friends also when I told them! I am extremely happy that I won and thank you very much. Regarding the design that I chose, is a custom Neo Traditional Japanese peony with color. Nikos Milo from Eightball Tattoo Studio designed and tattooed the peony flower on me. The tattoo came out more beautiful than I imagined".

*Nikos Milo is a tattoo artist since 2007 and since 2009 works at Eightball Tattoo Studio. The tattoo styles he does are Neo Traditional, Dotting and Old School.












HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine would like kindly to thank Niko Milo and Eightball Tattoo Studio for the realisation of the “1st HeartbeatInk Tattoo Contest”.
