Dim

People - Issue 7

I had my first tattoo done by Kiriakos from Sake Tattoo when I was fifteen years old. This was the reason for my "destruction". I distinguish my chest tattoo from Dask. It matches perfectly with the concrete part of my body and I love that it has such strong colours. I also single out the composition that was made by Tam on my leg. The design is very special. In 2014, I hope that Orge will complete the sleeve on my right arm. Usually, when people see my tattoos they are being expressed either in a very positive or in a very negative way. Personally, I don't care. I think that now tattoo is more accepted in Greece compared to the old days, but it still has a long way to go. I have experienced "racism" because of my tattoos and piercings at some jobs. Tattoo is art, but it does not necessarily have to mean something. When I respect the work of an artist, I'd rather get his design - artwork tattooed on my skin than buy a painting of his.

Νο, and I will never do so, haha!
