I got my first tattoo 18 years ago. Sometimes I find it funny that I have all the tattoo themes people wanted to have at the beginning of the ‘00s: tribal tattoos, Chinese characters and a dragon on my lower back. But during those days, it was a thing itself to even have tattoos – … Continue reading Riikka

I’m from Vietnam, and I moved to Finland three years ago. First I came to study logistics and supply-change management, but then I switched to study digital marketing. I currently live in Helsinki and work as a junior growth hacker. People always ask me why Finland – that must be the most common question I … Continue reading Tuan

Ihollani on tällä hetkellä varmaan nelisenkymmentä tatuointia. Ensimmäiset viisi tatuointia on otettu vuosien 2007 ja 2011 välisenä aikana. Sen jälkeen pidin muutaman vuoden tauon, ja kaikki loput kuvat on tatuoitu viimeisen puolentoista vuoden aikana. Tänä aikana uusia tatuointeja on tullut otettua keskimäärin joka toinen viikko, joskus useamminkin. Paras saavutus taisi olla kuusi tai seitsemän kuvaa … Continue reading Julle (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

I came up with the idea of my first tattoo when I was 16 years old. Back then I wanted to get the tattoo on my forearm, and it would’ve been much smaller and made with black ink only. Eventually, I decided to get the tattoo on my chest, and instead of getting a small … Continue reading Aaro

I got my first tattoo when I was 18 years old and still living in my hometown Hyvinkää. I noticed that there was a new tattoo artist in the neighbouring town, Riihimäki, and since I thought her artwork looked nice, I decided to book an appointment. I had a cool plan about a big lotus … Continue reading Riina

Anette

I’m currently 22 years old, and I have 23 tattoos at this point, so I’ve been getting tattoos at a good pace. I had my first tattoo couple of weeks before I turned 18. It’s a tattoo of Lake Inari, and the X marks my home. I knew since the beginning that I would get … Continue reading Anette

Kiinnostuin todella paljon vaihtoehtoisesta ulkonäöstä joskus teini-iän tienoilla. Tiettyyn ikään asti olin hyvin tavallinen, vaaleatukkainen tyttö, mutta sitten iski päälle vastarinta, ja halusin alkaa ilmaista itseäni paremmin ulkonäköni avulla. Kehonmuokkaus kiehtoi minua ajatuksena, mutta koska en kuitenkaan tahtonut itselleni kovin rajuja kehonmuokkauksia, aloin hankkia lävistyksiä. Tatuoinnit puolestaan tuntuivat luonnolliselta jatkumolta lävistyksille. Ensimmäisen tatuoinnin otin 18-vuotislahjaksi … Continue reading Elisabet (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

Elisabet

I really got interested in alternative looks during my teenage years. Up to a certain age, I was an ordinary girl with blonde hair, but then I started to feel I want to express myself with my appearance. I was fascinated by different kinds of body modifications but still wanted to keep my own looks … Continue reading Elisabet
