Vasso M.

People - Issue 16

Ever since I was a teenager, I knew that I eventually get tattooed. I decided to go for my first one, several years later, as an adult so that I wouldn’t regret it. Tattoo is widely regarded as a culture, a philosophy, a way of life when you just can't stop, but above all, it is a personal matter. It is a way of investing in ourselves and on our skin and that is what people who are against tattoos cannot understand. I had the opportunity to be an assistant twice at tattoo studios, which was something that brought me even closer to the matter. That's why I'd like to thank Reta and Fotis from Rock 'n' Ink Tattoo for their trust.
