People - Issue 3 - 4

I did my first tattoo in 2005 and after that, four more tattoos followed. My first one is a flower, while lately I have been extending my sleeve tattoo with Alex Gotza. Among these, I would highlight my matryoshka, my iron fist and the clavicle in the hinge of my hand. More to follow...
