People - Issue 8

Sometime back in 2002, I started getting tattooed. The beginning was initiated with the two nautical stars on my back, made by Vasso (Eightball Tattoo). Soon after I got more tattoos done... Since then, I haven't stopped “enriching” my collection with smaller or larger pieces. I think that the sleeve on my left arm is definitely the “highlight”; it consists of fourteen themes and characters from paintings of the surrealist Salvador Dali. The sleeve was inspired and created by the exquisite tattooist and amazing artist Lonis (Lonis Tattoo).
