People - Issue 7

I have had the desire to “paint”' my body from a very young age! I am not sure from where I was influenced by... However, when I turned eighteen, I started with a dragon which instead of being the size of my little finger, was the size of my palm! Hence my adoration for big tattoos. For a few “unprogressive” ones it may be a bit reprehensible, but I was never interested about what others said about me. What matters for me is being myself.


Name: Liana
Profession: Employee.

How many tattoos do you have? 

Hmm.. If we start counting, we won't stop!

Which artist(s) did your tattoos? 

Dr Pepper (Giannis Piperakis), Barcode tattoo (Lektikos / Ksidias), Stigma (Natassa).

Which tattoo is your first and which one was your latest? 

My first one is a dragon on my back and my last one is my sleeve.

Which tattoo is your favourite and why? 

My sleeve because it symbolizes a woman's life!

Which tattoo artist do you admire? 

Dr.Pepper (Giannis Piperakis) of course.

Which tattoo style do you like best? 

I have no particular preference, as long as it express me!

Do you regret getting any of your tattoos, if so why? 

How could a mother feel regret about her children?

Have you done a tattoo cover up? 

No! Never!

Have tattoos affected your life? If so, in what way?

Since I started getting tattooed at a very young age, I wouldn't say that they have influenced my life! Of course there are many “prying” eyes.

Do you have an activity of yours that you would like to mention?

Nο! I have nothing else to add...
