Dan Lorenzo: How did you end up in Miami?
Konstantin Alexeyev: Hi, Dan, one of my favorite places as a city and as nature.
DL: You told me you have a specific approach when it comes to tattooing somebody. Can you explain it?
KA: Yeah, for me the most magic part of a tattoo is how it works with a body. I don’t see more interesting task than how to create a composition that will works with an anatomy of a person. That means the design of a future tattoo should take a lot of time for preparing. A freehand technique is the best way to do a totally anatomical tattoo. I use it in a lot of my tattoos, but sometimes it’s not enough and if I really want to do the best project, I’m sketching a design on a 3D model. Sometimes it takes months but it makes my art unlimited. When I want to be sure that it will be perfect I can to invite my customer for the first session.

FEATURED TATTOO COLLECTOR
In the business since 1992, Ronda Xanthos has been around the world, tattooing all manner of show biz celebrities, supermodels, circus freaks, and gangsters.
I am currently an apprentice at The Abyss Fine Art and Tattoo Studio in Long Beach, NY. I have been surrounded by different forms of art my whole life. I always knew I wanted art to be the center of my world, but never really understood how to make that possible.
It all started on the morning of June 22, 2017 in Durango, Colorado. Packed and ready to go. Clothes, food, camping gear and of course, tattoo equipment, all loaded on two wheels. The time had come for a new chapter.
You may remember Brenda Swan from the cover of Tattoo Revue Issue 180. That issue has since sold out and become a collector’s item, so she’s back for issue 185! We hope you enjoy the photos.
