Vassiliki / Nekonelle

People - Issue 7

I have to say that my initial inspiration, concerning the tattoo world, was Kat Von D. I can remember myself from a really young age admiring her, for how elegant she made the “'full body inked” appearance looked in a woman. I am a body modification lover in general. My tattoos doesn't mean something specific, most of them are designs and paintings of my favorite artists as well as from my favorite cartoons - anime that I want to have on my body. My first “acquisition” was when I was sixteen and my "deadline" is to stop when I will have covered 70 - 80% of my body.
