Tattoo Style: Chinese watercolour

I am a Romanian tattoo artist and I moved to London in 2016, convinced that it will allow me to
grow artistically. I have been on a continuous journey of self-discovery ever since I started
tattooing and I’ve been aspiring to find the true paths of existence and humanity aesthetically.

My tattooing style takes shape from the freedom and trust I am given by my clients and my own
desire to explore and unchain myself from the societal pressure. The style I’m proposing and
implementing in my work is based on traditional watercolour techniques, while also
experimenting different approaches, trying to come closer to the secret of existence in beauty.

Moreover, in my works I demonstrate a true interest for the Asian aestheticism, with Chinese
and Japanese ink wash painting as my focus. I treasure the way this ancient genre can be
figurative and abstract at the same time. As a result, it develops into a more personal and
subjective art, its power residing in expressing rhythms, moods and letting loose of the chains of
convention, while also experiencing a new-found freedom.

Ink painting is an attempt to capture the essence of an object in a condensed form – a person,
an animal or a landscape, which is why suggestion plays a key role. The applied tones and
colours on the skin serve as a direct speech of my interests. The purpose of my work is making
people happy, offering them a memorable experience by imprinting any form of emotion or
feeling into a truly special gift to be carried throughout their lives.
