Founder / Editor / Author

Alpi T. is the founder and also a tattoo enthusiast who loves everything about this art form. Writing about the topic and gathering information to help others who are interested in learning more about tattoos, became his passion over the past few years.

He launched tattoochronic.com and a podcast audio version of it as a way to share his passion for tattoos with the world and to provide a resource for those who want to learn more about this amazing art form.

Because of the lack of quality content and reliable information on these topics, tattoochronic.com was born.

His goal is to provide people with accurate, trustworthy information so the readers can feel confident about their decision to get a tattoo.

In addition to running TattooChronic.com, Alpi T. is currently working on a new project to help aspiring tattoo artists learn the craft. He is collaborating with expert tattoo artists to create a comprehensive tattoo course for beginners that covers all aspects of the trade, from equipment and safety to design and technique. Alpi's goal is to provide an accessible and high-quality resource for anyone who wants to learn how to become a professional tattoo artist.

In the meantime, Alpi is also offering a custom online tattoo design service for people who want to get a tattoo but are unsure of what design to choose. By providing consultation and working with clients to understand their vision, Alpi creates personalized tattoo designs that are ready to take to a tattoo shop. This service is a great option for people who want to be fully prepared before getting their tattoo and ensures that the final design is exactly what the client envisioned.

If you're thinking about getting a tattoo, or if you just want to learn more about this fascinating industry, I invite you to explore our website. For suggestions and other website-related inquiries please send us an email at: custom.design@tattoochronic.com
