• GIPPI RONDINELLA •

ITALY
ITALY

Gippi Rondinella belongs to the first generation of professional Italian Tattoo Artists. Gippi defines himself a Tattooer (and not an artist) and opened the first tattoo studio in Rome in 1986 (Tattooing Demon Studio). He had a truly fascinating life, which included extensive travels into the most remote regions of the world and during the last few decades he reached a mythological status within the Italian tattoo community. For us, is an immense honor to have him as a World Tattoo Events Ambassador.
