People - Issue 7

My first tattoo was done by Tolle’ (Eightball Tattoo) in 2001. After this very moment I became “obsessed” with tattoos and my desire has been to fill my body with them. I distinguish the "headache" tattoo on my fingers; which is the nickname that Karvounidis gave me twelve years ago...
