Riina

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

Ensimmäinen tatuointi mulla on kyljessä, ja siinä lukee ihan tavallisilla isoilla kirjaimilla HOPE. Aloin miettiä sen ottamista joskus 17–18-vuotiaana.

Pohdiskelin sitten varmaan vuoden verran, aloin pikkuhiljaa suunnitella ja piirrellä tatuointeja, ja lopulta tämä leijona oli … Continue reading Teemu (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

I got my lion tattoo when I was 17 years old. I had been thinking of different tattoo designs since I was a teenager, but luckily my mom told me not to get a tattoo just yet. Back then those designs were mostly basic stars, tribals and so on – just everything that looked nice … Continue reading Teemu

I got my first tattoo when I was 21 years old. It was a small bear on my left arm but it has been covered up with another tattoo afterwards. Nowadays I have a full back piece with a much bigger bear on it. I have taken all of my tattoos at a quite fast … Continue reading Annika
