“I love tattooing. It’s my life”
Mitzu originates from Romania and has been doing tattoos for 20 years, although, in his own words, professionally for 10 years. He started his career in his home country when he was just 17 years of age. Back then, it wasn’t possible to order professional tattoo machines and equipment online as you can now, so all the machines and needles had to built by hand by the tattoo artists themselves.
“This built me experience, but it’s also something that has helped to keep my feet on the ground up to the present time.“
When Mitzu was 22 years old, he decided to travel by train to Portugal with only a few coins in his pocket. A few years later, he established his own first tattoo studio at Portugal. After that, Mitzu has worked all over the world, including in England, but since 2011, he’s been working in Finland. After a few years of working , Mitzu decided that it was time to establish his very own shop – the Helsink Tattoo studio.
Mitzu describes his style as being influenced by Japanese art, and he especially enjoys creating colourful works of art. Lately, he’s been adding watercolour style in his tattoos, as well as some ‘dot work’ style.
