Kuutti

I get new tattoos quite spontaneously. Usually when I come up with an idea, I either tattoo it myself within the same week or book an appointment to another tattooist. Most of my tattoos are self-made. The whole idea to my seal pup tattoos was actually a joke at first (Kuutti in English = a … Continue reading Kuutti

Eve

I became interested in tattoos when I was still very young. I must’ve been 12 years old when I was browsing through a magazine called Suosikki and saw an article about the Finnish singer Ville Valo. I looked at his photos and thought “oh, his tattoos are so cool – I wish I had tattoos, … Continue reading Eve

My story is not exactly a happy one. At four years old, I was put in an institution. I didn’t have any contact with my father or mother, so I had a nanny who looked after me. I was a kid who did a lot of trickery. I ran away a lot and since my … Continue reading João

Riikka

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 used to live in London, so I’ve got most of my tattoos there. I got my insteps tattooed first. They were tattooed ten years ago, when I was 20 years old. The other tattoo is a turquoise butterfly, the other a pink butterfly. I didn’t plan my first tattoos almost at all – my … Continue reading Tea

Julle (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

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)

Aaro

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

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
