Interview with fine line tattoo artist @math.lst

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have always been interested in tattoos, I grew up listening to music, and the bands I listened to had tattoos. I found the artwork fascinating. After stumbling around trying to find out what I wanted to do, 18 years ago, I ended up helping a friend of a friend in his tattoo shop but taking his appointments. After a while, he got very busy, and I asked him if he could teach me who to tattoo so that I could do the smaller tattoos and he could concentrate on the bigger ones. So after apprenticing for over a year, I finally got to do my first tattoo.

Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

Being able to travel with my job is the most interesting part. I am lucky enough to have been tattooed in different countries worldwide. France, England, Finland, New York, Los Angeles, Switzerland, Germany, and Sweden. I was also lucky enough many years ago to tattoo the goalkeeper of the French national team, Fabien Barthez.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Being able to take the rest you need. Being able to say no to things, take those holidays, visit places, and get inspired. It will only help your career.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

My master Guy is the person I owe everything to. I was lucky enough to be able to apprentice under him. I learned the importance of placement for a tattoo and how to make tattoos flow on the body. Secondly, I am grateful to have miles Langford as a friend and that he trusted me to start the new adventure of the London social.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I have done some charity events and given a day’s worth of tattoos for charity.

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

With your customers, you are nothing. You have to be grateful that people are willing to get tattooed by you and never forget that. Also, you have to LOVE YOURSELF; there is only one “you,” and that should be cherished,

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article? 

I do vegan tattoos; I am vegan myself, and it’s important to get a vegan tattoo by someone who is vegan and not just doing them for the clout.
