"The most important thing in tattooing for me is the visual component. On my opinion it is above the semantic load or philosophical and ritual essence. Because it is the basis that helps one to evaluate certain art works more objectively. In that case a tattoo acquires value not only for its carrier, but also becomes an original work of art. My painting expression is based on neo-traditional style that, as I see it, is a good dialog for different directions of art. This eclecticism gives me all the necessary freedom to express my ideas."
