Gleb Pesoc is my favourite name in the world. Gleb’s been getting more and more popular outside of Russia and he’s started regularly ‘touring’ Europe – although I met him in SPb, he gave me my tattoo in Berlin. I’m praying he’ll come to Prague whilst I’m living here. Check his instagram for regular beautiful tattoos and details about his availability.
One of the cool things about tattooing is that your canvas is people, and people aren’t all smooth and blank. I really like the way Gleb’s tattoos sometimes include people’s features, especially scars.
4. Dancing girl
This one is just so graceful!
3. Why not?
The croc looks slightly uncomfortable, like he’s embarrassed he’s been immortalised eating this girl.
2. Fire extinguisher
I love the way Gleb uses colour!
1.Birds on a wire
Blue on skin is so striking, and looking at the individual birds blows my mind. They’re all slightly different and each one seems to have its own unique character.
Bonus: Rosie’s chocolate mammoth.
It’s red ‘cos it’s fresh and (bonus info) it fucking hurt.
Gleb stopped about halfway through and asked how I was doing. In my mind, I was thinking about how a half-finished chocolate mammoth would be so much more stupid than a full one. Out loud, I said, “Yep yep good good.”
