People - Issue 1

I have never taken part in a tattoo convention competition because I don’t like the whole concept of competitions. My sleeve tattoo was done by Vasso (Eightball Tattoo Studio). It took a year to finish, bit by bit during every session. Every part of it is a part of me… Basically, things that I like and represent me. The padlock in the middle of my chest was also done by Vasso and it represents my ‘’locked’’ heart… No more needs to be said. Mr Raven was done by Sotja (Honest Tattoo), a tribute to Edgar Alan Poe and his poem The Raven: “Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore? Quoth the raven, Nevermore”. The knuckleduster is by Tasos Sgardelis (Honest Tattoo) and is ‘inspired’ by the fact that many friends call me a ‘tough girl’. My favourite Babushka (of course its proper name is Matryoshka) is from Dimitris Aronis and I did it because I have always liked this kind of doll.
