What are your plans for life and work in the next few months? I’ll be recording a few songs over the next few weeks and plan to make a video for each song. Life will always take me where I need to be, so I’ll just live in the moment and see what happens.
Traditional tattoos are a big part of the culture in brazil
How do you choose your tattoo artist? Can you name a few and what they did for you? I’m looking for traditional artists. Thick and precise lines, lately I only like traditional tattoos in black, not other colors. My favorite artist is Cesar Malnova from Brazil. His art is amazing and he really captured what I was looking for.
Where did your passion for tattooing come from? Do you have a style or quality you are looking for in your work? I got my first tattoo when I was 17. It has the Ramones logo on the back and I fell in love with it immediately. I did business in Brazil for several years, but unfortunately I never learned how to get a tattoo. I never thought I would be able to do this, but maybe one day I will learn and develop my own style.
