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

Ihollani on tällä hetkellä varmaan nelisenkymmentä tatuointia. Ensimmäiset viisi tatuointia on otettu vuosien 2007 ja 2011 välisenä aikana.

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


I got my first tattoos at a young age: the first one when I was 13, the second one when I was 14 years old. My very first tattoo was a black widow spider on my shoulder blade. I got the tattoo together with my best friend after my dad gave me permission. The pain … Continue reading Noora


My first tattoo is the hawk on my left shoulder. Before I got the tattoo, I spent lots of time thinking about its message. Finally, I ended up on a hawk theme. I got this tattoo about six years ago. The hawk is related to my past. I got bullied at school, and during middle … Continue reading Henri
