People - Issue 22

My weakness in horror movies made me take the decision to imprint on me scenes from them. I first started in 2013 with the Frankenstein and keep up to date with my latest piece of Jeepers Creepers and I will continue. I would like to thank Lazaros Brone and Ritual Tattoo who made sure to imprint this work on me, which offered me awards in Greece, Cyprus, and most recently and most importantly for me the prize in Milano International Tattoo Convention.
