How long have you been tattooing since?

I started 6 years ago in my small hometown.

Any special training?

I went through the basic course, but the biggest progress for me, was working at tattoo studio in the capital city of Czech Republic. It was a period where several early-stage artisans met. Everyday enthusiasm for game was the biggest school for me.

How would you explain your style?

My style of work started on simple sketches in which I tried to involve something more original. I loved old school, but with the greatest respect for the traditions I needed a bigger challenge. From simply shapes and shadowing, I got to the NEOTRADITIONAL, which I'm doing now and constantly improving and loving.

Been to any conventions lately?

With own freshly new tattoo studio, the convention got a different dimension :). I enjoy meeting friends and meet new ones.

What was your apprenticeship like?

It will be an unexpected answer but I started at home and on my own legs... but after a while I went working to tattoo shop in Prague. I have often visited Norway, Denmark and Germany, where I could have known the experiences of other artists.Despite some portfolio, all of us learn everyday.

Any artists you admire or want to shout out?

Every quality tattoo artist, from which I can feel he love this craft and moves on. Namely MYRHWAN OGT, KUBEC WOLFTOWN, BOB.INK, ISNARD BORBOSA, KENNI POKE.....

What advice do you have for people looking to get tattooed?

Let customer feel relaxed, then can enjoy the seating with me.

How'd you get started?
