Black & Grey
How would you describe your style?
My style is changing all the time, now it's a mixture of graphic elements and sketch drawings, watercolor and fine lines.
In 24h the world will come to an end. What do you do until then?
I would try to keep calm and spend the rest of the time with my family and loved ones.
You' ve got 14 days off - where do we find you?
Usually when I have free time I like to visit different countries or rest around the house.
What are three things you hate?
Things that I pay for and don't work as they should be. To be accused of things that I did not do. To be betrayed.
How did you come to do art / tattoos?
When I was around ten years old I found an art album from Pablo Picasso that inspired me to try and copy the drawings . When I got a little older I was into graffiti. I started tattooing after I got my first tattoo.
Where have you tattooed?
I've been tattooing in Ploiesti , being my hometown, also I've been guest artist in other cities in Romania.
How do you feel about the edding TATTOO concept?
I have a very good feeling about this project and I am enthusiastic to be part of it.
What role does hygiene play, when you're tattooing?
Working with blood is a big responsibility because I can easily get someone infected or I can get infected myself, that's why hygiene is the most important thing to me.
What do you think are the advantages of the edding TATTOO inks for the end conusmer?
Getting tattooed with a safe and high quality product which you can trace having the TATTOO ID. And having the fresh ink all the time.
How should the consumer feel, when leaving the studio after a session?
After the session is over the customer should feel satisfied with his tattoo and already thinking about the next project to get inked at edding TATTOO.
You spend a lot of time in the studio - what are your claims and expectations?
My expectations are: professionalism, good vibes, friendly atmosphere and good organization.
What makes a good tattoo studio?
In my opinion what makes a good tattoo shop is great, original and well done artwork. Good advertising, always up to date with the public and their demands.
What was the first tattoo you inked?
The very first time I've tattooed, I tried to repair an old tribal tattoo.
Up to this day, what is your favourite tattoo you've tattooed?
I can't answer this question because I love tattooing, and every tattoo I do is special in its own way. Maybe I'll have a favorite one after my career as a tatttoo artist is over and I'll be very old.
How do you feel about cover ups?
I think that there are people who are very good in doing them but I'm not one of them.
Should anybody want a tattoo as a souvenir for Hamburg city, what would you design?
Hamburg is a port city so a lot of tourists want an anchor or some nautical design. I would like to work with the customer and try to create a design based on his experience in Hamburg.
