TW: Describe yourself in three words
– Achieve my goals.  

TW: Why did you choose black & white realism for yourself?
– I've enjoyed more monotonous work all my life, and after healing black and white tattoos look better in my opinion.  

TW: What is it in black and white that cannot convey color?
– In a black-and-gray tattoo you can transfer an image more concisely and expressively in tone than in colored tattoos. And in black and white you can make the work more detailed.  

TW: What type of realism do you like most of all?
– Most of all I like to make animals and male portrait. Because they are more detailed and interesting for me than women, in women's expressive can only make eyes and lips))) and in men – you can work out all the small wrinkles and not spoil the portrait at the same time).  

TW: What's the weirdest tattoo you've ever done?
– I cannot remember that I was doing some strange tattoo, but I heard a lot from colleagues. One of the most memorable - "Sea bass with two roses on the background."  

TW: If you find yourself in some crazy circus show (and you definitely will soon), what kind of character would you be?
– In choosing a character for the show, I would choose the image of a guitarist from the Limp Bizkit group. But to make a tattoo in a makeup for 7 hours is unreal, all makeup will float ))
