Interview with Lions


When did you first get introduced to tattooing – and how has graffiti influenced your work?
I started working in the tattoo industry in 2007. One thing led to another and at the moment I can’t imagine doing anything else. To me, graffiti and tattooing are completely unrelated. The few similarities I can draw from the two would be my common aesthetic for tradition and an overall classic look. I prefer graffiti to look like stylish, classic lettering and tattoos to look like tattoos, no matter the design. Also, the ability to network effectively amongst like-minded professionals, being in the streets and interacting with people from all walks of life.
Living a life you love that you created for yourself through hard work and determination are other common threads between these two endeavours. Read the whole interview with Lions over at 12ozProphet.com
