I was born in 1972 in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary. I still live here.
My first tattoos were made in 1992 by amateur equipments. In the following two years - besides studying and working - I made tattoos whenever I had the possibility to do so. In 1995 I opened my current tattoo studio in Zalaegerszeg.
It was in 1996 when I first paricipated at the Budapest Tattoo Expo. Here, I won two awards. I have been taking tattooing seriously ever since.
In the first years of my profession I learned everything alone. I met some significant tattoo artists in 1996; they truly influenced my learning process.
1997 was an important year of my profession. I opened my second studio in Keszthely (Hungary) where I used to work during the summers. I also visited the Barcelona International Tattoo Convention as a spectator. This event had a huge impact on me. The following Tattoo Conventions were in Bologna and Berlin where I stood behind well-known tattoo artists and watched their work, the techniques and equipments they were using. After returning to my studio, I applied then everything right away.
In 1999 I attended the Berlin Tattoo Convention - the first time as a participant.
What could I write about my work?
I am lucky, because my job is my hobby. I cannot describe my style as I am not committed to any of the trends. I like doing new things every day, I am susceptible to everything new, but of course I need to take the limits of the skin into consideration.
I prefer customer demands with not only visual, but mental content, as well. I like customers with own, individual ideas, because they inspire me and let my imagination flow. However, it's very important for me to get enough freedom during creation.
I consider all of my projects equally important, because each is the most important to the person who wears it. Of course there're some, which are really close to my heart. You may recognize them by looking at my drawings and photos.
I prepare each tattoo the way as if I made it to myself, so I create them with a work of art and not only as a piece of work. I do my drawings by being aware of that. The drawings are sketches; they are very precise and work demanding.
I spend most of my time in my tattoo studio, working. I've also taken part in the foundation works of the Hungarian Tattoo Association where I'm currently the Provincial Vice President.
If you're interested in my work, please email me at email@example.com or visit me at a tattoo convention (see On the Road).
