People - Issue 15

My first contact with the needles was six years ago when out of curiosity I wanted to carve on me what I had started doing in the music sector, as it felt serious. In my opinion tattoos are art. However, in case that a tattoo means or symbolizes something, then it’s even better, since it “gives” more meaning to it. I believe that a tattoo should satisfy and “fulfill” the person that “wears” it. I once cancelled a scheduled tattoo in a renowned artist at last minute, because he wouldn’t make exactly what I wanted. Yiannis (Agios) put both the color and design that I needed on my hand and in my life. Obviously, there is more to come.
