Let’s Get Started


Set a consultation appointment

The best way to get in touch with me is to send an email. Check your spam folder if you're awaiting a reply. Please include the following information:

  • General Idea.

  • Photo of the area you want to place the tattoo.

  • Reference pictures.

  • Reference to one of my tattoos' style.

After that we will set up the consultation meeting and discuss the ideas in person.


The design process

In general, my designs are based on realistic images and can be mixed with different color effects, patterns, brush strokes and freehand sketches.
I’m always open minded for challenging projects, so don’t hesitate to bring up your craziest ideas!
During the consultation meeting we can try to get a deeper understanding of your project and put together the ideas that will help me design your upcoming tattoo.


Tattoo session

A tattoo session is an intense experience for the body. Have a good rest on the day before your appointment. Sleep well, eat a nice breakfast and bring some snacks and drinks with you. If it’s summer, try to protect the spot from the sun. You can also apply body lotion on the skin to soften it a few days before your session.

About Me

I was born on the island of Sakhalin, far away east, placed in sea of Okhotsk almost touching Japan by its southern tip. In fact for some time in history this island was part of Japan known by name Karafuto. My life took me to many different places. A few years after my birth the family moved to their homeland in Ukrane, then Russia again. At some point we found our home in the Middle East, in Israel. I just turned 14. This move drastically changed my life perception, introducing a completely different language, mentality, and customs for me to grow in.

I studied arts in school when I first picked up a tattoo machine in 1996, I was 16 years old. I didn’t have much of mentoring and had to figure out things by myself. Luckily many friends were supportive of my new hobby and it allowed me to practice and gain some experience. Today, looking back, I see how jumping into an unknown and trusting the process shaped my future journey. I studied fashion design, dreaming of traveling the world. I kept tattooing as a side job not realizing that this is exactly the train ticket to farther lands I always needed.

In 2008 the tattoo industry decided to skip waiting for me to make my mind of who I want to be, when I got invited to work professionally in real studio in Tel Aviv. At this time tattooing became so popular I had an opportunity to tattoo and to learn so much. Even though still without proper tattoo mentorship I intended to get a grip on all aspects of tattoo art I possibly could. Step by step gaining the knowledge, and confidence which led to me being noticed on the other side of the ocean and apparently moving to work in the Unites States. Countless conventions and guest spots navigated my way from America to Europe, Middle East to Asia, Europe again, finally bringing me to Frankfurt Germany.

In 2018 I opened my first tattoo studio. My journey is far from being over, I travel frequently and always open minded to visit new places. But it’s always nice to get back to my studio, and to work on all the exciting projects I’m blessed to be asked to tattoo. I feel that tattooing is my everlasting diary engraved in my soul and on the skin of those who wear them.
