Carving visualised life tales into skin.
+ C R E A T I O N +
Peter Laeviv tells your life story on your skin using his visual language. You trust him with your your thoughts and emotions and they will be the muse of the tattoo. He will read between the lines and embody them on your skin to carry it with you while you roam this reality. The interpretation will always be based on your notes, respecting your wishes as much as possible and avoiding your dislikes - guided and lead by Peter’s vision and visual language. This collaboration requires openness and strong trust on both ends. If you have a very rigid and clear idea regarding what you are after, then Peter might not be the best choice for your project. Flexibility and open mindedness plays a key role in a successful tattooing journey.
Peter’s style is a symbiotic merge of meticulous geometric and organic symbolisms that formulate surrealistic visions often inspired by self-reflections. This particular form-language and memetic storytelling is aimed to stimulate diverse interpretations. The approach to embody these metaphysical creations is unique in itself and the ritualistic process is an integral part of the experience.
The imagery that you will be accepting during working with Peter, with all of its memetic and symbolic cues will always be based on - and organically tied to your story. Since they are truly one-off artworks, they carry much more of an emotional value for their wearers.
The creation will always be unique to you and will never be used again, as there are no two life stories alike.

A few days before your appointment Peter will have a conversation with you where he will get a feeling for you and what you wish to convey. Then he will spend 2-3 days behind the scenes creating a full day tattooing worth of a piece that tells your story, often leaving a small piece of himself in each creation. With longer bookings requiring multiple days of tattooing like a sleeve - the creative process will take longer. The final direction of the design is shown in person on the day of your tattooing appointment. Peter’s creative-process is quite heuristic, often changing the design intuitively during the day while tattooing with your consent - adding and removing elements while being in a collaborative state with you. There will never be any pressure for you to get anything tattooed unless you are completely satisfied with it.
A deposit will be required to lock in a slot for a tattooing ritual. The size of the deposit may vary based on the length project. Multiple day booking will have a bigger deposit. This in not an extra payment and will be deducted, however it is not refundable under any circumstance.
