Janis story of getting into tattooing and opening his own shop

Warning – This is very import interview for me that is why it is so long.

In this interview/talk Janis is telling his story of getting in to tattoo world and tattooing. Story is important for me because I have been around all that story. It is not only important as a personal thing. In my opinion it is a milestone in history of Latvian tattooing because it was first traditional focused tattoo shop in Latvia. It was first shop opened by crew of relatively young tattoo artists at the time when tattooing was starting to get big in country and it kicked off new wave tattoo culture and attitude towards it and I had the honor to be there at many points of let’s say evolution of the all story.
