being myself is a personal tattoo project in which I created everything from idea to implementation (idea, art direction, production, editing, texts, creation of tattoo works). In it, I reflected my approach and 10 years of experience in tattoo art. 

The project consists of very personal stories of 8 heroes. And it is an interview with the characters, where they share the story of accepting their “imperfections” and a photo of the tattoo work created for them, emphasizing this accepted feature. I also shared why such an image turned out in the end. You can get acquainted with the details of the project, interviews and stories of the heroes on Instagram.
