Dimitris Depis / Captain Barber

People - Issue 28

Since I was little, I always liked tattoos, I admired and envied the people who had them, knowing inside me that some day I would be fully covered in them. Not all of my tattoos have a special meaning, I just go to the studio, I pick one and I get it tattooed on me. I had my first tattoo when I was sixteen and it was an old school gypsy lady, for good luck. I always wanted to be different than the others and I believe that this tattoo culture is 100% compatible with my style, the music I listen to and even my job. I work as a barber and I have the luck to be able to look the way that I want without having to sacrifice my personal expression to get a job at an environment of conventional aesthetics.
