Elianna Zoura

People - Issue 16

People get tattooed for different reasons. For me tattooing is an art form that expresses my personality and my lifestyle. As an idea, tattoo first “entered” my mind when I was at the elementary school. I remember the first time I ever saw a tattoo in my life... It was when I was at my uncle's house and saw a friend of his with two sleeves. It was at that moment when I realized that I wanted, like crazy, to fill my body with tattoos. Of course my mother wasn’t delighted at all to hear that, since I was the only girl at school that was “hysterically” asking for a tattoo. When I was in high school, I kept pressuring my mother to allow me to have a tattoo, but the answer was "when you become eighteen, you can do whatever you want". When I was fourteen, I secretly went with an acquaintance of mine at a house, where I had my first tattoo done. Since then I consider myself to be addicted.
