Medway Rochester Tattoo and Piercing Artists
Tattoo and Piercing Artists, Medway, Rochester
My name is Valentin Eftimie, I am from Constanta, Romania and i have started tattooing 3 years ago.
I am with the Medway Tattoo Rochester team since May 2015 and i am enjoying my stay at the fullest.
I love playing with different styles but i enjoy the most having a touch of realism in my work.I am inspired by pioneers of the actual tattoo scene such as Carl Grace, Victor Portugal, Alex Pancho, Dmitry Sahmohin, Alex de Pase, Polish Dan and many others. Tattooing has become more than a job for me, it is a passion that i will constantly try to improve.
I started my apprenticeship at 15, I have spent my career tattooing full time since 2000, in professional studios across the country and at conventions. I try to put my heart and soul into every tattoo I do. I am inspired by the amazing artists I have met along my journey, who teach me to stay humble. In my head I live in Thailand, I have travelled lots, these intrepid adventures into different cultures and countries feed my thirst for knowledge and change my perceptions and perspectives. I'm never more happy than when I tattoo, I lose myself for that moment, I am truly grateful for every tattoo I do, even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I wouldn't change a thing, not one moment. Come get something a bit unusual and surreal or colour or dots, I like a challenge (within reason).
