People - Issue 10

I had my first tattoo done in 2007, mainly because I was curious to see how much it might hurt. I kept getting small non – colour tattoos, until I got the swallows on my carves at Happy Sailor Tattoo in London and I realized how beautiful colourful tattoos are. All my tattoos symbolize something. I really like Old School and New School tattoos, therefore I feel absolutely safe at Vasso's hands (Eightball Tattoo Studio).
