DR. K, TATTOO ARTIST
"I learned tattooing self-taught 7 years ago, and I was facing the same problems, almost every beginner has to face: I couldn´t afford an apprenticeship with a tattoo shop, so I had to figure it all out by trial-and-error, which took me almost 2 years.
I was so close to giving up my dream of becoming a tattoo artist several times. Thats why, after becoming a Tattoo Artist, I decided to become a Tattooing Teacher, too. Because during my time of learning, what I really missed the most, was an experienced Tattoo Artist, who was willing to give advice, share his knowledge and answer my questions...
so this is what I wanna be for everyone out there, who is dreaming about becoming a tattoo artist: the living prove, that your dream of becoming a tattoo artist can come true, and a mentor, that you can ask for advice anytime."
Since 2015, Dr. K (Roland) is running his own tattoo shop in Düsseldorf, Germany. He is an allrounder, who focuses on Fineline- tattoos & realistic tattoos, but also enjoys styles like scetchy, trash polka or neo-traditional.
