People - Issue 11

Back in 1993, when I was fourteen, I announced to my parents that I wanted to have a tattoo... Hahaha, you should have seen their faces – in shock, I’m still laughing and of course I postponed it. Sometime around my thirties, I got my first tattoo done. Now I'm thirty-four and I'm still getting tattooed! I started with certain pieces, and then I wanted to connect them all so that they'll become one piece. When I went to Dermagrafics Tattoo and met the guys, they immediately made me feel like home! The awesome thing of my acquaintance with Dermagrafics is that the summer before I started getting tattooed, I didn’t know where to go. Then I saw a guy on the beach with three tattoos, two not so remarkable ones and an exquisite one. So I asked him who has made them, and he replied that the two not so remarkable ones – in my opinion of course - were made abroad, while the third and most beautiful one was made at Dermagrafics Tattoo Studio. It was that moment when I got so excited and went straight there. My first tattoo was done by Miss Litsa and I’d like to thank her, because she was wonderful and she has a super soft hand. Then I went on with Dimitris Aronis, who tattooed me from neck to waist - front and back - with his incredible dots designs. Then Meiz “undertook” me and gave me an amazing skull tattoo and now Manos is doing a “kicking ass” Japanese piece on me; all artists are from Dermagrafics studio. I’d like to thank all the guys from my heart for the wonderful tattoos, since everywhere I go people look at my tattoos and admire the with their mouths open. I’m “stuck” with tattoos so much, that I would like to have another two-three bodies, in order to get many more of them done, but unfortunately there is very little space left on my body…
