I was born in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary in 1972 and I still live here.
I created my first tattoos in 1992 by using amateur equipments. In the following two years – besides studying and working – I made tattoos whenever I had the possibility to do so. Then I opened my current studio in 1995 in Zalaegerszeg
I participated in the 1996 Budapest Tattoo Expo first, where I won two awards. I have been taking tattooing seriously ever since.
In the first years I learned the profession alone. I met some tattoo artists in 1996 who accelerated the learning process.
I opened my second studio in Keszthely, Hungary in 1997 where I worked during the summers. In September, 1997 I visited the Barcelona International Tattoo Convention as a spectator and it had a huge impact on me. The following Tattoo Conventions were in Bologna and Berlin then. At all these places I stood behind the back of well-known artists and watched their work, the techniques and equipments they were using. I learned and applied then everything while working.
The 1999 Berlin Tattoo Convention was the first one, which I attended as a participant.
I spend most of my time in my tattoo studio, but also have taken part in the foundation works of the Hungarian Tattoo Association and I am the Provincial Vice President.
What could I write about my work?
I am lucky, because my job is my hobby. I cannot describe my style as I am not committed to any of the trends. I like doing new things every day, I am susceptible to everything new, but of course I need to take the limits of the skin into consideration.
I prefer customer demands with not only visual, but mental content as well. I like customers with own, individual ideas, because they inspire me and let my imagination flow. However, it is very important for me to get enough freedom during the creation.
I consider all of my projects equally important, as each of them is the most important to the person who wears it. Of course there are some, which are really close to my heart. You may recognize them by looking at my drawings and photos.
I prepare each tattoo the way as if I made it to myself, so I create them with a work of art and not only as a piece of work. I do my drawings by being aware of that. The drawings are sketches; they are very precise and work demanding.
If you are interested come and visit me in my studio or at an expo.
All the best till then: Boris
