If you are searching for a tattoo artist in the Milton Keynes area, you landed at the right place. If you just searched for tattoo Milton Keynes or tattooist Milton Keynes, that's fine. As a matter of fact, I work at Inkantations Tattoo Studio in Towcester, just outside of MK. Let me first introduce myself; I'm Csaba [ˈtʃɒbɒ]- yes I know, you can use Trevor, Casaba, Casbah, Gaspar, Trouble, or Casper, you can call me how you like. Believe me, I heard it all :), and yes I also know that Shabba Ranks song: Mr. Loverman... :).
I am tattooing for about the last 14 years. It wasn't always like this. I did many things before, till I finally fall in love with Tattooing. It became my life. Always felt /steel feel:)/ a strong attraction to the “Arts” in any shape and form. Tattooing was that rebellious and most powerful art form that got me. Through tattooing, I found my way to creativity and eased my hunger for Art.
I get a lot of times the question: Why did You choose to tattoo? Why did You start to tattoo? etc.
First of all, in the beginning, I just felt that this is what I like and want to do. Later the same question arises from time to time in me as well. Why am I tattooing?
Of course, I went through some changes as everybody does. Life can always surprise You :). Probably the “Why” has been evolved over the years as well.
Surely wasn't for the money/at the beginning, it was hardly any money in it /, neither for the fame. Not because “it's so cool” to be a tattoo artist. Then really why?
Tattooing has a charming, magical and mystical glow to it because it can change your appearance for life. It could mark a spiritual turning point in your life. It is a constant, present pain that makes you forget all your daily problems or they get out of focus at least for the period of tattooing.
But still, not this was my WHY. As I got older, I realized and discovered that tattooing is not about me! I found out that I am just the tool for the clients to express themselves. I figured out that tattooing is nothing else than a service. The customers give me their ideas and trust, and we create an image on their skin. That is how I serve them.
So here is the answer for the Why: I am tattooing because this is the best way I can serve my fellow human beings with my very best skills and ability to express themselves. Every hour I spend with tattooing and drawing will lead me to give even better and better service. So this is not about me, it's about YOU!
If anything, then this is my Tattoo Story, or better to say my “journey”. For me only one achievement is important, and that is that happy face when You will check out your fresh ink in the mirror.
Let me make this statement: I love tattoos. I like a big tattoo or a small tattoo. Colour tattoo and black and grey tattoo. Unusually cool tattoo, or strangely attractive tattoo. Tattoo's with a personal specification, or with a unique modification. Traditionally new tattoo and old-fashioned modern tattoo. Tattoo's that are delicately detailed or boldly black. Swirly-girly tattoo and masculine tribal, no problem I like it. Abstract or realistic, square or rounded, soft or harsh, watercolour or pastel, bright or dull, crazy or normal, flower and animal, people or landscape you name it! If You love tattoo's, I love You too!
I'm happy to tattoo any style. My preference is your likings!
Now, it is vital, that you have your great idea, for yourself for your rest of the life. Just think for a moment what else you decide that you will carry for life. Be unique, be original and don't copy somebody's tattoo. Nice to have inspiration but strive for your expression. It's difficult because everything in life is impermanent, even tattoos fade and desaturate after 20 years. Be wise and try to picture yourself, how you will look after 10 or 20 years later with that tattoo. Try to avoid negative expression as fear, anger, hate and horror. Some point in your life, you might regret. If this is what you after, you might search somebody who is specialized to tattoo that. Probably I would try to talk you off. Some people like tattoos as just a decoration, like a jewel. I like even more if there is a deeper meaningful spiritual connection to their owner.
Tattoos will always be subject of liking or not liking. Fashion changes quickly. Try not to please all the 7 billion human beings. It's important that you know that is for You and not everybody else. Some people will love it and some not.

These things I mentioned here are based on my principles and are the solid base of my work /what I don't experience as work :). For me, every tattoo and every person are equally special.
