It was not about winning a competition, it's about being able to return to a skateboard a few weeks after a serious fall, after a broken arm... Yesterday I managed to overcome my fear, my apprehension of fall, of people looking at me, of losing all my level, and start again from the beginning... There are traumas that change your life, but it depends only on you.
If I understand one thing through this experience is that first my hands and my arms are my work tools and I have to take great care ... but I remain above all a skater and surfer and of course a tattoo artist. But I can’t be just one or the other ... and my mental balance comes from the practice of surfing and skateboarding and my art.
So a big thank you to all of you who supported me during his 3 months between my fall and my return to my carver. I was scared, I had pain, I was angry and I found a reason, and especially I managed to regain some confidence in me that had disappeared ...🌱 📸 Thank you my love @pedrocorreia.photographer to be always here and to take amazing pictures and videos of me 😍
The full video of the skate competition will come soon ! 📽

If I did learn something this days inking so much, without getting out, nearly no time for enjoy to chill on the beach or having surf session after surf session, it's that want you do what you love, you really don't care anymore about having lot of free time... my days are just passing so quickly, so intense. But the smile on the face of my inking clients it's make me forget that I can surf only, hopefully, just twice on a week... or less.
That I don't go parting like a crazy woman and having an huge hangover next day, I'm not looking for meet lot of people and chilling and chilling again without nothing to do... I'm just enjoying to create something unique on your skin, enjoying the good vibes of a nice tattoo session, having more fun with just one session of surf that ten... Doing my yoga, a glass of wine with good friends, a sunset with my love and what else ?! Photo by @pedrocorreia.photographer
