I come from Sicily, Italy, but I’ve been always travelling since I was legally allowed to.
I started tattooing literally on the streets and kept doing it on my friends in the squats where we were living since ‘98 circa.
I worked for the first time in a tattoo studio here in Berlin in 2002, but I started tattooing professionally and every day only in 2009 in Rome at the Swan
Song Tattoo, where I stayed for 10 years.
There I learned everything I know about traditional tattoos. These are the foundations on which I base my designs, although I give them my own personal touch.
In addition to traditional American and Japanese tattoos, I feel very inspired by Tibetan art, which I find perfectly translatable into tattooing.@elisacarisi
