tattoo artist


I used to be a graphic and web designer, but have been working as a tattoo artist for almost 8 years. Since the moment my tattoo machine made the first ink puncture, I realized I was REALLY doing what I wanted to do. And to this day, I continue to create art on human bodies.
I truly believe that tattoos are much more than just a client meeting with an artist: when I tattoo your skin, it feels more like a ritual to me. I want to make your dreams come true.

About me

Hey! My name is Dasha, and I'm here to design the tattoo of your dreams! I have been drawing since I can remember. It has always been one of my biggest passions. It's true magic when my thoughts and ideas come to life in my designs.

The aftercare process is a really important part of tattoo healing. 50% of how well your tattoo will look after healing depends on this. I kindly asking you to follow these simple rules...
– Is that painful?

– Of course, you feel something, because it’s a needle that goes inside your skin. But pain is not so strong, because needles that I use is very thin.


Contact me:
– I don't send the tattoo design before your appointment. On the day of the session, I'll show you the design, and if any adjustments are needed, we can work on it together. From experience, I find this to be the best way to communicate with my clients.
For booking/consultation, please fill in the form “booking”. I'll contact you back as soon as I can to clarify the details. I'll provide you with a price range and inform you of the nearest available dates for your appointment. Please keep in mind that the tattoo design and aftercare products are always included in the total price of the tattoo.
Please keep these important things in mind:
I kindly ask you to make a booking only if you are sure you can trust me with your tattoo.

Please note that you cannot get a tattoo if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have diabetes, suffer from epilepsy, or have skin infections.

Additionally, after your tattoo session, you will need to limit your alcohol consumption for 3 to 5 days. Furthermore, you should abstain from practicing any sports or physical activities for 5 to 7 days. Taking baths, going to saunas, swimming in pools or in the sea, sunbathing, and using a solarium are strictly forbidden for 3 to 4 weeks.

I conduct 99% of my consultations online. However, if the project you have in mind is large, such as a sleeve, or if the placement of your tattoo is difficult, such as on the shoulder blade or hip, we will need to meet in person.

Each design is unique and based on your idea.
You need to keep the second skin (transparent plastic film on your skin) for 4 days after the session. We don’t count the day of the session. For example: if we do a tattoo on May 1st, then you need to remove the second skin on May 5th before you go to sleep.

You can take a shower as the second skin film is waterproof. However, don’t take a bath or a long hot shower, just a quick warm one.

Avoid sports or other physical activities for at least 5 days after the session. Sweat is not good for a fresh tattoo.

Don’t drink alcohol or strong black coffee for 2 days as they can increase blood pressure. This may cause the ink to come out more than usual, potentially leading to the fading of the tattoo's fine lines in some areas.

On the second day after the session, you can maybe may see some small drops under the second skin. It’s just a surplus of ink and it's normal, don’t worry about it!

Please don’t scratch your tattoo, don’t try to pierce the second skin

After removing the second skin, wash your tattoo gently, with warm water and normal soap.

After removing the second skin, it's possible that certain parts of the lines may appear darker and/or some faded. The "black bright" parts are actually a crust of lymph and ink on the skin's surface. This is normal and it is important you don't try to remove it as it will peel off on its own. Other parts look lighter because that' how ink looks under the first layer of skin. The tattoo will always look lighter than on the first day, because after some time, the ink will be on the second layer of your skin. The first layer acts as a natural color filter for the ink.

You can remove some parts of glue on your skin with something oily (olive oil, coconut oil and etc.)

After removing the second skin its possible that some parts of lines look darker than others or some parts of lines “faded”. These “black bright” parts are a crust of lymph and ink on the surface of your skin. It’s normal, don’t try to remove it. It will peel off on its own. Other parts look more light because that’s how ink looks under the first layer of skin. The tattoo will always look lighter than on the first day, because ink is on the second layer of your skin. And first layer is like a natural color filter for ink

After you remove the second skin, you need to use cream to hydrate your tattoo 3-4 times per day for one week. This is a really important part of the healing process. Any cream you have for your body, hands, and face will work. Bepanthen is also very good.

Avoid saunas and taking baths until one month after the session.

If you decide to sunbathe or visit a tanning salon within one month after the session, please cover your tattoo. Additionally, after one month, make sure to use sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 50 to protect your tattoo.

The tattoo will heal on all skin layers after 1-2 months. After this period, you will be able to see what your tattoo will look like for the rest of your life.

Please keep in mind that fine line tattoos are different from "classic" tattoos. The work is done very carefully and on the surface of the skin to achieve very fine lines. Therefore, in some cases, depending on your skin type, immunity, placement and healing process the tattoo needs a touch up. You may realize this if some of the lines have faded a bit. Don't worry if this has happened to your tattoo. It's completely normal and doesn’t mean that your tattoo is healed bad.

Tattoo correction should be done no later than one year after the previous session. The price of correction depends on the amount of work. If you come in for a second tattoo within a year, I always make a touch up for the first tattoo free of charge
How to take care of your tattoo after our session:
The aftercare process is a really important part of tattoo healing. 50% of how well your tattoo will look after healing depends on it. I kindly asking you to follow these simple rules:
It's almost like the first skin layer becomes a natural "color filter" on your tattoo: this means it will not look as black as when you first got it. Tattoos on darker skins look more green or bluish. The lighter your skin tone, the darker the tattoo looks. Don't forget to use sunscreen when you sunbathe.
Pain levels also depend on placement. For example, getting a tattoo on the ribs can be felt more than getting a tattoo on the forearm.
From my experience, the most common phrase I hear after I start tattooing someone is "I thought it would be worse!" Sometimes people fall asleep if they lay down to get their tattoo.
Keep in mind that girls can have more sensitive skin when they are on their period.
Keep in mind that the tattoos you see on Pinterest are fresh tattoos. A fresh tattoo and a healed tattoo look different.
Please note that I work on my designs on a first-come, first-served basis.

One more thing: when I send the design in advance, people often show it to family and/or friends. Too many opinions can confuse you and make you doubt every little detail, and there is no point in that. The tattoo is on YOUR body. I think it's great to trust yourself and your choice (and to trust the artist, of course).
Remember that pain is very subjective. You will, of course, feel something because there is a needle that goes inside your skin. However, the pain is not very strong because the needles I use are very thin. You can compare the pain to when a cat scratches you.
Is it painful?
No. When you get a tattoo, the ink is in the first and second skin layers (respectively, epidermis and dermis). After the healing period (between 1 and 1.5 months), the first layer is fully renewed, and the ink that used to be there disappears. The ink you'll see after this period of time will mostly be in the second skin layer.
Will the ink of my tattoo remain as black as it was the first couple of days after my session?
What about safety?
All the equipment that will be in contact with your skin has plastic disposable protection. I also always wear disposable gloves. All cartridges and needles are sterile and disposable. All surfaces are cleaned daily.
What if I have an ink allergy and I am not aware of it before our session?
I have never heard or seen any allergies to black ink in my personal experience, unless it's poor quality ink. This also applies to colleagues with the same profession. Some people may be allergic to red ink. However, it's important to note that high-quality ink is typically non-allergenic and made from organic ingredients. If you have concerns about this, you can contact me, and I will be happy to provide you with a list of ingredients in the ink. If you have any additional doubts, please see your dermatologist.
Do you send the design in advance?
No, I don't, because I believe that you chose me as your tattoo artist because you have seen my portfolio and trust me and my work. You will see your design on the day of your session. If adjustments are needed, we can always make them together.
I'd like a mini-tattoo with a lot of details. Why can't I do this?
Size is a REALLY important part of tattooing. The skin is not like a piece of paper, and the needle is not the thinnest pencil. Your skin has a specific texture, and over time, the little details would blend in, and you would not be able to see them anymore.
Can you add the ash of my grandma/grandpa/cat/dog/… into the ink?
Will I need a touch up after the tattoo has healed?
This varies from person to person as the healing process is different for everyone. It also depends on a good aftercare routine, skin type, etc. Fine line tattoos are more prone to needing touch-ups because the lines are very thin, and the artist will always try to work delicately and accurately. It is better to fix some faded parts later instead of using too much ink too deep in the skin, which might lead to thicker tattoo lines after some time.
I would like a tattoo on my fingers/feet.
I highly recommend not getting a tattoo on your fingers. The skin on our fingers, as well as our palms, the back side of the wrist, the side of the foot, the elbows, and knees, renews very quickly as it is in contact with a lot of different surfaces and liquids. This means you would need to constantly retouch your tattoos in these areas. Trust me, you would not be happy with the result. If you are really convinced and want to get a tattoo on your fingers, then it's better to just get some simple dots or dot ornaments.
