A great passion for the most authentic Traditional and a collection of tattoos inspired by Sailor Jerry’s flashes: she is Andrea – model, entrepreneur, content creator and co-founder of the Instagram @traditionalstattoos page.
Hi Andrea, would you like to introduce yourself to our readers?

Beside that, our love and passion for traditional tattoos gave us the inspiration to create our IG page @traditionalstattoos.
