I’ve been tattooing since 2006, so 12 years now. In the beginning I just wanted to paint graffiti, but one day a friend of mine asked me to join him in a tattoo studio. This is when I started to learn about tattooing and how to tattoo. After a long period spent as a tattoo apprentice I started my own career as tattoo artist. I’ve worked conventions in Barcelona, Milan, Brussels and London and I hope to work them again some day and new ones.

I would say my style is a mix of realism and watercolor or abstract effects. Now it’s changing though as I am starting to work with more Neo-traditional styling.  I think it will allow me to develop my ideas further and really connect to tattooing in a more personal way.

What I love most about my job is the freedom and that everyday is a new and different day. My favourite sentence is “always learning”, I even have it tattooed on my fingers, this is how I want to live my life.

After 12 years of tattooing what I really want is to express myself in every tattoo, to put a piece of myself into every tattoo I make. I don’t really care that much about the subject, but I do care about the confidence my clients put into me, how they let me create my vision. I need to express myself and not to copy an image onto the skin.
