Tell our readers more about you
Hey, I am Luigi Mansi and ever since I was a kid, I’ve really enjoyed drawing. Already in elementary school, I had an advantage over my peers. Later, I went to technical school for information technology, but then I decided to devote myself to tattoos because thanks to them I could turn my passion for drawing into work. So I completed a course that allowed me to practice tattooing and four years ago I opened my studio in Latina Scalo. I have been doing this profession for 10 years now.
How would you describe your personal artistic style?
When I was little I did exactly what I do now but on paper.I have always drawn portraits of characters I loved, actors, singers etc ..so I just changed the canvas.On my body I prefer black and white, but when tattooing I prefer the color tattoo, as I consider it a more artistic process than the black and white tattoo, where sometimes it is very mechanical and repetitive.

What advice would you offer someone considering this career?
decided to devote myself to tattoos because thanks to them I could turn my passion for drawing into work. So I completed a course that allowed me to practice tattooing and four years ago I opened my studio in Latina Scalo. the best way to improve in tattooing is to do it constantly every day, at least 5 days a week. If you can’t do it on the skin, you must tattooing on the fake skin to improve your skills. It is also very useful to do private seminars with the best tattoo artists

How much money do you make as a tattoo artist?
I consider myself a very lucky person.. I managed to transform my passion into a job which pays off well! I can’t complain, I earn well and I manage to enjoy life, between travel and material possessions! But the gain always takes a back seat, it’s a consequence of the hard work and great commitment I put into it day after day!
What is most rewarding pf your work?
certainly the positive feedback from the people who follow me, both on social networks and in real life, but above all the faces of my satisfied customers at the end of the session
How much time off do you get/take?
I work 5 days a week, I need at least one day off to think about nothing and dedicate myself to my family and hobbies, and another day off to manage my work from behind, so the organization of the agenda and the conception of the various projects
What are your goals/dreams for the future?
I will definitely open a drawing and tattoo school in the future! But at least in 10 years! not now for sure, it will be my next job!
Tell us about your online seminars and private courses, what sort of lessons are you giving? are you showing youe skills and can anybody take your seminars?
Anyone can purchase my seminars online at any time! A new one will surely come out next year!
While the courses in the presence, I make a maximum of 4 a year because for the moment I want to devote myself more and more to tattooing!
Teaching is something I will delve into and spend more time in the future!
In the online seminars there are my theoretical explanations and videos while I tattoo, while in the face-to-face courses it is the students who work on synthetic leather while I am by their side!
