Miika (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

Vaikka tatuointini on otettu yksi kerrallaan, muodostaa Twin Peaks -teema yhden, selkeän kokonaisuuden. Tutustuin Twin Peaksiin alun perin joskus yläasteen ja lukion siirtymäaikoina. Olen viettänyt nuoruuteni pienessä kaupungissa, jossa elämä oli pitkälti ajelehtimista ilman mitään yhteisöä tai kiinnekohtaa, johon olisin tuntenut kuuluvani. Sitten elämääni tuli Twin Peaks – kuvaus pikkukaupungista, jonka kaikki asukkaat ovat outoja … Continue reading Miika (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

Although my tattoos are made one piece at a time during the years, Twin Peaks forms a single, unified theme on my skin. I saw Twin Peaks for the first time somewhere between my junior high and high school years. I’ve spent my youth in a small town where life was mainly drifting without any … Continue reading Miika

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

Idea reisitatuointiin lähti puhtaasti siitä, että tykkään maatuskoista. Mulla ei siis ole venäläisiä sukujuuria, vaikka moni saattaa niin luulla. Silloin kun olin pieni, meidän mummolassa oli maatuskoita, koska mun mummo keräili niitä, ja leikin aina niillä siellä ollessa. Mun mielestä ne oli vaan niin kauhean kivoja, kun niistä löytyi sisäkkäin aina vaan pienempi, pienempi ja … Continue reading Iina (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

The idea for my thigh tattoo came simply due the fact that I like Matryoska dolls. So, I don’t have any Russian lineage, as many people might think. When I was a little kid, my grandmother collected Matryoska dolls, and I always wanted to play with them while visiting her. I just thought they were … Continue reading Iina

Iita

The plus and minus was my first tattoo. I had booked the appointment while I was still under age, and got the tattoo a week after I turned 18. First, it was going to be ± Iita, but it would have been so small and blurry that I decided to change the idea. And then … Continue reading Iita

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

One Journey, One Destiny on my neck, this is a picture dedicated to a woman whom I got to know around six or five years ago. I thought she was heterosexual, she was engaged to a man. It turned out that we were both interested in each other, so one day I decided to visit her. … Continue reading Mimma
