Known for his clean, and bold Irezumi style, Tattoo Amassador Sergey Buslaev was kind enough to give us his time for this exclusive interview. He talks about his work, his heroes, and why it's so incredibly important to acknowledge and give homage to the deep history of the tattoo art form.
What is your artistic background and how did you get into tattooing?
Most tattooers say that the Japanese style has the most rules...Why were you drawn to the Japanese style of tattooing and what Japanese designs do you most like to tattoo?
What inspires your work? What artists are your heroes?
Beyond tattooing, what are you most passionate about? If you weren’t a tattooer what would you be doing?
What does success mean to you? What advice do you have for other artists?
2018 is hopefully going to be an awesome year...do you have any travel plans, collabs, projects, or new materials/techniques you hope to work in?
