How would you describe your style?
I can’t attribute my style to any of the existing styles. I call it the Japanese horror. I’m inspired by ancient Japanese prints, Japanese beliefs and mix it with modern Japanese animation.
How has social media influenced your tattooing?
At the beginning of my practice, the social network gave me to understand the already established level of quality of tattoos and the fact that my style will highlight my works from the billions. Social networks helped me to remove the frames that sounded like “I’ll do what the customers want, it’s in demand” and give myself to creativity. “You
do what you want” is my motto now. After all, what you do from the heart always turns out great, because you put your strength and yourself into it.
If you could tattoo any person, living or dead, who would it be, and what would you tattoo on them?
I can’t single out a specific person, because I don’t decide whom to give it to. I’m glad to every customer and it’s interesting for me to work with their ideas and give them mine, because they trust me. Most of all I like drawing demons, so I think I would give it.
Who would you like to get tattooed by?
From my first favorite tattoo artist Pari Corbitt. I’ve been following him for 5 years. I like to watch the development of his style. And of course it’s Kelly Violet (kellyviolence), she’s amazing!
Do you make other art?
Now I plan to make my site with stickers, pins, T-shirts and bags. I’m learning to play the guitar anew. Once I had finished a music school, but it was so long ago that I had time to forget everything. I’m learning languages, probably this is not art, but this is my favorite hobby.
