‘People always look for the reason to do something, when they should ask themselves if there’s a reason not to do it’. Those are the words of one of the greatest, Italian tattoo artists, Luca Font. With his distinct strokes, from Bergamo to the Milanese capital, Luca made his mark, becoming known and appreciated. Let’s find out more about what’s hidden behind the bright colours of his artworks!

First of all, what was your first experience with the tattoo world?

As it often happens in these occasions, I just started with getting tattooed. A few years later, it all took an unexpected turn and what originally was pure curiosity turned into a full-time job.

Luca, how would you describe your style?

I’ve always found this question…difficult. In relation to my social, geographical and chronological background, I feel like defining it as ‘traditional’ somehow.

That being said, what was the most important experience in your career?

Tattooing for the first time!

What are your sources of inspiration? Is there an artist whose work represents a point of reference for you?

We’re so bombarded with images and stimuli that it’s impossible to take as a reference point one and only source of inspiration…

What would you never tattoo? And who have you always wanted to tattoo?

I try to keep away from negative content, it seems to be a preadolescent way to get noticed.

Perhaps not everyone knows that you were once a writer, what do you still remember from those days?

The dirty hands, stained clothes and constant sense of exploration.

You were born and grew up in Bergamo, but you live in Milan. What do you like about the Milanese capital specifically? On the contrary, what do you miss about the suburban life?

In Milan, even just to stay afloat, you have to make an effort: it’s as stimulating as tiring. Anyhow, who said that of Milan isn’t a suburban life?

If you could, what would you change about the Italian creative scene?

Nothing, we’re beautiful just the way we are!

With over 800 posts and 80K followers on Instagram, your following is, to say the least, significant. Have social networks contributed to reaching your goals and objectives?

At the moment, it’s the only work tool possible. So, I would say…yes.

In spite of your great success, do you have regrets or remorses?

Of course, you can always do better.

Do you have a piece of advice for the young artists who want to embark on a similar path?

Do it your way!

And a dream for the future?

To finish the video game ‘Cuphead’, but I think it’s hard to make it happen.

Lastly, would you like to collaborate with a clothing brand?

Yes, but with a knitwear brand!
