At a very young age I fell in love with tattoos
and the raw power they carry.
In my neighborhood in Florence there was a man,
in his fifties, covered in fading blue tattoos.
There was something mysterious and transgressive about him, his nonconformism fascinated me.
Years later, at the age of 15, I saw the man again, Maurizio Fiorini, on the cover
of a popular magazine.
I was sitting in the apartment of one of his apprentices, waiting for my first tattoo.
Overtime my obsession with tattooing would bring me to his shop, where I slowly and respectfully
gained the opportunity to learn about the tools
of the trade and the magic of this craft.
Today, after two decades as a professional tattooist, spending 10 of those years traveling and working
in shops around the world, my commitment
to the trade couldn´t be more absolute.
With the words “Fullfillment” and “Impact”
always in mind, I manifest my creativity
across different fields and collectives, with projects spanning from art exhibitions to podcasting,
including charity work and teaching.
The recollections of a lifetime of achievements, challenges and dedication
coming from the most significant tattooers of our time.
Their entertaining stories provide us with an informed and inspiring perspective,
sparking reflections on the many facets of tattooing and human experience.
