Passionate about art and tattoo from an early age, I made my first steps in the field in 2011 after obtaining my Technician-Dentist CFC.
Since then, I have learned and refined different techniques, also through my travels and encounters with other artists, in order to develop my creative universe, focused mainly on DotWork, practiced both with Machine and Handpoking technique.
The ritual and my personal approach
The tattoo ritual allows us to mark certain milestones in our existence with patterns and for reasons special and personal to us.
Each person is unique and has its own experience, so it is essential for me that each project realized is a personalized and tailor-made creation.
From the idea to the realization
The projects desired by my clients are created after a discussion together to fully understand the symbolism of the project, after which a sketch shall be drawn up on paper to confirm the direction in which we are heading. The final pattern can then be applied in the skin, either by transfer or freehand, before being tattooed.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing unforgettable experiences with you.
A few techniques
The handpoking technique, realized by hand using a simple needle (without a machine), is as close as possible to the tradition of tattoo ritual and allows the client to appreciate the connection to the source of this practice without technology (electricity). Indeed, the first traces of the tattoo ritual date back to about 3000 years before J-C. There are different forms of handpoking, from bamboo to bone and needles by Thai monks, as well as Japanese tradition.
The hammer technique (tatau)
The hammer technique (tatau) is more a matther of HandTaping. The word “tattoo” comes from Polynesia, from the word “tatau”, common in many Polynesian cultures, which means in Tahitian “to strike”, which itself derives from the expression “TA-ATUA”, combination of the root “TA”, literally “drawing inscribed in the skin”, and the word “ATUA”, which means “mind”.
