My dad introduced me into the world of tattooing. He saw potential in my drawing skills and set up a meeting with a friend of his, one of the pioneers in Ghent, Miele. Who thought me how to make my own needles and work with tattoo devices. When I had a grasp of it, I did my first tattoo “sweatin’ bullets” on my dad. And Miele gave me the opportunity to work and learn at his shop in Antwerp. After a year though, I shifted my focus to my studies Social Practice.
But a move to Italy in 2003 brought me back to tattooing. At Franks Tattoo in Catania (Sicily) I went on learning as an “all rounder” and got faster by time. My love for oriental tattooing started here and I challenged myself by making my own versions of Japanese designs.
Three years later, back in Belgium, I started working at Wildcat in Antwerp. Where I found a better balance between flash and custom work and information talks. As Wildcat closed its doors in 2011, I found a new workplace at Kingpin in Bruges.
September 2012, I may proudly say that my very own tattoo parlor “Inkglorious” opened its doors.
bedankt voor het advies dat ik heb gekregen dat een tattoo om mijn litteken weg te steken op mijn onderarm niet zou helpen. het mooiste bewijs dat jullie niet in het wilde weg tattoo’s zetten. super !Nelly Dhondt
