my first trip ever out of my country was Amsterdam ,i decided i want to be a tattoo artist when i was 17 years old,and after i got refused in the only shop i know i can learn best. i started my trip to look for apprenticeship , Amsterdam seems to me like the best place to start , i heard about hanky panky and i said to myself i`ll go there first , i bought one way ticket , told my family i will come back only as a tattooer , the first thing i did after landing , is going to hanky panky`s shop with a bunch of my drawings and try my luck , i got “kicked out “of the shop preety fast , i did try again and again but it didn`t work .
I was walking around tattoo shops for a little more then a month when I realize , its not easy :).
I went to England from their , but here the story get longer and longer , ill stay on the Amsterdam story .
anyway time pass and i was lucky to meet avi vanunu in Amsterdam and i got back to Israel and eventually got an apprenticeship from him.( thanks avi)
since then i`ve been in Amsterdam many times .
About 19 years pass (I started tattooing few years after so i`v been tattooing about 15 years now), and i`ve got invited to work at the world famous tattoo museum own by the one and only hanky panky , what a circle of life.
I was very honored to be working at the museum and I felt like it was kind of a crazy circle of life in a way , anyway here are some of the tattoos I did .
i tattooed 3 of my favorite people on Amsterdam monica , samantha , and amar
monica is a tattoo artist that when we met she was a famous dj and a tattoo collector and we`ve been friends for many years , samantha is a close friend as well and she does body piercings at classic ink and mods in Amsterdam ( great shop as well )
And amar is just an amazing person good friend and incredible tattooer .
and justine ( with the dragon )from Germany was a great costumer
please if you in Amsterdam go and check out that museum it an amazing place .
the redness on monice`s tattoo is from a numbing cream she used before we started
