Roxx Krash

People - Issue 8

For me tattoos are much more than just ink on the body. I've loved the tattoo world from a very young age. When I decided to get my first tattoo done, I visited the nearest tattoo shop to my house and I can say that I was lucky. Magaret was able to perfect all my ideas and to bring each design to my standards. The more tattoos I was getting, the more deeply I “entered” in the tattoo culture. My other love, music, created the “solid” space in which tattoos are not a taboo and “saved” me from the social criticism which is more common and intense in provincial cities... I had already suffered from it due to my musical - style appearance, so tattoos did not surprised the small community. Finally, I have to say that tattoos are to me the same that lyrics are... Absolute expression.
