Before someone gets a tattoo what advice do you give them?: If they are sure about the art they're going to get and to take a good care of, never stay under the sun for a long period of time without sunblock on their skin.
How did you get into tattooing: My sister gotta a friend named Frederico, in 1993 we've met at his place, he used to tattoo, and there I had the great opportunity to see his fathers sketch book, actually Lucky Tattoo. I was 13 years old. every time after school i used to ring Fred's bell, and I knew he was with a client... That was amazing... I didn't know why I loved that tattoo world... Anyways... but he never let me touch the tattoo machine... I never had a chance to tattoo anybody because I was under 18 and it was expensive to by a tattoo machine, ink etc... So I decided become a tattoer now in December 2017 and I have NEVER been so happy in my entire life!
