Hello, Tat souls!
In our first post in the Interview series we are bringing you an artist and a tattoo afficionado Frankie Frieri from Three Roses Studio.
He is the owner of a beautiful studio in Fairfield and not your regular tattoo artist.
Besides tattooing, Frankie creates art in other forms. He paints on canvas, sneakers and skateboards as well.
He responded intriguing questions like ¨is tipping a tattoo artist OK?¨ and shared some advice for people looking to get their first tattoo and for other tattoo artists as well.

I find inspiration in almost everything. I am a huge art and art history lover – I have an extremely intense art book collection and do alot of research.
But, provided I own a custom tattoo studio, my inspiration comes from my clients and their stories behind their tattoos.
I’d say… Believe in yourself and your ability and always stay humble.
Q: What about preparing for the tattoo?
Don’t look at it like you are getting a root canal or a wisdom tooth pulled out. My studio is a private, intimate, laid-back setting and is extremely comfortable so I also try to make it a part of the experience.
The only thing an artist could do if they do have to use people’s work is to modify it as much as possible to create your own style.
Like the famous Michelangelo said: ¨every artist copies from one another, just make sure you’re copying from the best¨.
Also, any tattoo without a meaning behind it, just to get something for the fact of getting it.
Clients not taking your advice with the healing instructions. As a result, they try to blame you if it didn’t heal up the way it should.
