I loved drawing ever since I was a child and I always felt the urge to create. I'd never imagined that I would have the honour to draw on people's bodies and call this my job even though I've always wanted to have a job that would have an artistic side to it. In 2013 Sašo introduced me to tattooing and helped me along the way. When I was confident enough I started working and eventually I had the honour to tattoo my own drawings & designs –I was hooked since then. When I think about it, I can't even imagine doing anything else today. I've met so many amazing people through my work & I am honestly so grateful for your trust and support – it's what gives me inspiration, keeps me motivated and ready to embrace new challenges!
I was first interested in tattooing when I saw my grandfather's tattoo, who regretted his decision. He would always try and caution me away from tattoos saying »they last forever you know«, but I was still very infatuated with them. I always thought what a beautiful art of self-expression tattoos were.
I started tattooing in 2011 and after two years of working, I gained a lot of knowledge and experience so I decided to open my own studio – Tavči tattoo studio in Bled, Slovenia, where I work together with Simona. I learn, grow and improve my style with every project, but what I enjoy tattooing most is a mix of graphic/geometric designs, patterns and abstract. I also love to travel – go to different tattoo conventions and do guestspots at different tattoo studios all around the world. I love how this enables me to broaden my knowledge and improve my style.
We protected your new tattoo with thin self-adhesive film called Dermalize Pro which provides most effective healing environment. You should remove Dermalize Pro after 5 days or leave it on for a few more days if everything looks as it should (there's no itching etc.). In case of bleeding or weeping, you should replace the film with another piece. Before applying new film you need to wash the tattoo thoroughly using antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. Make sure the skin is completely dry and your hands disinfected before the application.
To prevent infection, workout during the healing process (especially first 5 days after tattooing) should be avoided. Self-adhesive film Dermalize Pro is waterproof, but you should still be very careful during shower time as it can cause the adhesive bond to weaken. Excessive exposure to water should be avoided.
You should remove Dermalize Pro after wearing it between 5 days (minimum!) to 7 days. The best way to do so is to exposure the film to an excessive amount of lukewarm water and carefully clean the area using antibacterial soap. Gently dry the tattoo – do not rub the area, but simply pat it firmly, using clean towel (or something that is not abrasive!) to get it completely dry. Apply a thin layer of a recommended tattoo cream.
For the next three weeks after tattooing follow the instructions below:
