When this idea was born?
2 years ago! We were so young !

 

Tattoos and Motorcycles…a pefect combination, please explain your choice.
The idea was born because I’m a tattoo artist and my boyfriend always worked with old motorcycles.. when I get off the studio where I was working and decide to start my own business I suggest to Marco to sell the retro motorcycles and to open  his own business too.
50% of costumers that come to get tattoos with me like they love the Moto world and his costumers like the tattoo world so wee thought that was a “very good marriage”!

What is the current trend, what are the most popular themes?
Flowers…. but minimalist ones .
In traditional tattoos the anchors and roses!
Let’s talk about motorcycles: are you inspired by the Moto culture for your work?
We sell new motorcycles so when the costumers buy a bike we customize according with what the costumer asks for.
The most part of motorcycles that we sell are 125cc and usually  it’s the  first bike for the buyer .

 

What about the local Moto scene?
Here, as now it happens  in all Europe, everyone is looking for Café-Racers and Scramblers old or new old classics. A law of five years ago allows cars drivers with more than 25 years to ride motorcycles up to 125cc. This has created a boom in sales also because in Lisbon is more and more difficult to drive a car.
Lisbon, your city; is it a positive, exciting artistic context? 
Yes! Lisbon it’s a very old town, full of art and history! Every corner of the capital it’s an inspiration!

 

A Tattoo is…
A way of life !

…ehm…I’ll visit Lisbon, in June, for the first time…any suggestion?!
Lots of suggestions!  Visit downtown and try to “live” the portuguese way !
Eat a “pastel de nata” and drink a strong coffee.
Have a dinner in a traditional restaurant with “fado” even if you dont understand what they sing !
Visit museums… and  come visit us !
