Stef Bastiàn is a tattoo artist with over twenty years of experience in the industry. Growing up in the beautiful Florence, Stef was fascinated by the art that surrounded him, and his love for tattoos was ignited by his interactions with Maurizio Fiorini, a historical Italian tattooer.
After spending countless afternoons listening to Fiorini’s tales of the old ways of tattooing, Stef set off on a decade-long journey around the world, learning from the best and gaining invaluable technical and personal experience.
Today, he focuses on American and Japanese traditional tattoo styles and is involved in various side projects and collaborations.
Apart from tattooing, Stef also teaches drawing, painting and tattooing classes, organizes art exhibitions and hosts the free podcast ‘Tattoo Tales’, where he shares insights from the best tattooers and creatives worldwide.
