How to become the best tattoo artist in the world?
Interview with Oleg Shepelenko, a master who is very close to this goal.
Magazine "The flow"
- So you specialize in portraits?
- On color realism.

- How is it that you have no competitors in this direction?
- Of course there are. We have to use some of their chips, gain experience, new approaches. Someone is doing small portraits of ten to fifteen centimeters, and I already put up large, all of the thigh, for example. I remember at the Moscow Convention once won a small black and white portrait, and my color work on two legs took second place, because one of the jury thought that in black and white more details. Although I kind of can two hours to make, and the spent two years.
- You for the classic tattoo?
- I for quality. A tattoo is for life. There are new styles, the same thrash polka. Enters in fashion, passes three-four years and there is no such style. Or dotwork, linework — this tattoo doesn't pass the test of time in a few years from these lines, points nothing. In fact, as in music, a new style and after a while disappears. Even in realism there are subtleties, for example, it is impossible to do a lot of details in a small work, they will melt, merge. You want details, do a great job. Such things come with experience, I also did not understand the difference before. The cool master for me is the one whose work in three years looks like fresh.

- What, from your point of view, is the right way to start a tattoo artist?
- Do not build any illusions — very much and intensively need to work. So in everything in life: in music, in business. Just work hard and everything will come. Revise the work of famous artists in the style that you have chosen, read only about this style. Need a narrow focus, do not look at fashion. Focusing on fashion is a failure.
