Konstantinos Oikonomopoulos

People - Issue 17

I did my first tattoo when I was thirteen and now I'm twenty-eight. During this time I can say that I have done many tattoos, however I have no regrets about any of my ink. Some of my tattoos remind me a style of an earlier era, some I've done them myself and I don't generally pay attention to "match" them all together. I plan to fill my whole body with tattoos; a large part of my head and maybe a little on the face. I currently like traditional tattoos. My next plan is to "close" my neck with a wolf on one side and a kiss on the other one. Generally I have not been in a rush because I often see that the tattoo style I want gradually changes and I'm worried about running out of space at some point. 

Name: Konstantinos Oikonomopoulos

How many tattoos do you have? 

I still empty space!

Which artist(s) did your tattoos? 

Nikos from 8ball, Lonis, One Love, myself (!!!) and some friends. 

Which tattoo is your first and which one was your latest? 

The first one is a chinese letter on my leg. My latest one is the sphynx cat on my biceps.

Which tattoo is your favourite and why? 

My left sleeve, because it has the most work.

Which tattoo artist do you admire?

Many, mainly Ozone, Deathpop, Nikos from 8ball and others.

Which tattoo style do you like best? 


Do you regret getting any of your tattoos, if so why? 


Have you done a cover up and if so what exactly?  

No, but some of my initially small tattoos grew gradually bigger.

Have tattoos affected your life? If so, in what way?  

I notice that people approach me more easily. For instance they ask me about my tattoos. They haven't change my character, just my appearance.

Do you have an activity of yours that you would like to mention? 

I've never been more in love...
