Tattoo - FAQ and more

The majority of people who hear the word tattoo will most likely think of an inked individual, probably with a criminal past. However, there are actually five types of tattoos distinguished by the American Academy of Dermatology: natural (traumatic) tattoos which are usually results of a body injury, amateur and professional tattoos, as well as cosmetic tattoos also known as permanent make up

Unfortunately, being tattooed have not been a consensual choice for some individuals. Nazis used to permanently mark concentration camps' prisoners arms with ink to be able to recognise each individual. Similarly, in China, the government had used tattoos in the past to mark past criminals or slaves, but differently to the the Nazis, they marked the person's face so that there was no way to hide it. That is why also a lot of older generations do not appreciate the art behind a lot of inked art, because of all of hurtful memories and past associated with them.  

Below there is some more interesting information, and useful tips when it comes to planning the spot for your first tattoo.


February / Game Changer


The Tuesday of the year. That is when motivation and euphoria tied to the fresh breeze of a New Year visibly fades away - the high is simply not strong enough anymore. That is when you realise you need something more. The real deal stuff.

Dedication, persistence, focus.

After trying to pursue what you thought you should be aiming for you start to feel this strong urge to do something more authentic. To express who YOU are, your OWN vision. That is how it starts - with an idea. Idea supported by the strongest force to ever rule a human mind - desire to create. To source your energy from your truth, your individuality, you do not need to worry about motivation, support, or willpower anymore. It is not even about really wanting something. Once you realise how much you can offer by being your best self there is no stopping you. You are too focused on your vision, your drive is unshakeable.
