Tattoo Artist

John studied fine arts and graphic design at the “Deutsches Colleg Fur Graphic und Werbung” in Munich, Germany.

After graduating, he worked as an art director for many known advertising agencies and design studios. At the same time, he is practicing tattooing as a hobby and in 1997 following his true love for tattoos, he decides to do it professionally.

At the end of the same year he launches “Paroxysm Tattoo Studio” in a small shop in Ano Patissia on Taygetou Street.
