Hello, my name is Elton Lopes and i have been tattooing for 5 year now. My place of work most of the time is in my hometown, Setúbal in Portugal. I do also guest spots in Germany and other citys in my country. I entered the world of tattooing completely by chance and as soon as I saw it for the first time, it changed my life forever. I am a basically self-taught tattoo artist, I have no training in drawing and painting, although I have been doing it since I was 4 years old. My style has always been characterized by realism in black and white, this has always been my passion, however over the years and being in contact with the world of the arts, I feel my style evolving into something more. What I look for with my work and what fascinates me the most is that the creation method is unique and exclusive for each client, I feel that I am helping someone in a very personal and even spiritual way in some cases, so I want to create something unique, bold and solid, something that endures the elements of time.
