My interview with Nigeria’s own celeb tattoo artist !!

This is a Special edition and its about tattoos(very informative), so this week I had an interview with a very talented Nigerian tattoo artist, who have gotten to know over time (familiarity lol )thanks to a mutual friend, anyway this post is going to be in a question and answer form but definitely with pictures ,here we go, hope you enjoy !
Q- so can we please know your name/brand name?
A-my name is Darlington Chukwumezie but I am best known as DLT celebrity tattooist.
Q-how did you get into this form of art?
A-well,I have been an artist for a while, painting and graffiti since I was a child,its my God-given talent, but I went into tattooing in 2004.
Q– what’s your general opinion on tattoos
A– personally, I do not think tattooing is fashion, I think it’s a way of expressing yourself maybe an event or anything memorable.
Q- you mentioned that you are a celeb tattooist can you explain?
A– (laughs)I do tattoos for everyone but my clientele has involved a lot of celebrities that’s why I am called that.
Q-hmm celebrities like?
A-(chuckles) wizkid ayo,ice prince zamani,mocheddah,saucekid,general phype,ASA ashika(davido’s manager),lekki hood finest,and uk based DOT STAR etc.
Q-have you ever been judged by your appearance?
A-basically only in Nigeria people look at my haircut(a gold dreaded mo-hawk),my tattoos and piercings and think am either crazy or a musician never as an artist.
Q-do you ask your clients questions before their procedures?
A-yes I do, for example I ensure they are 18 and above, and know their reasons for it, not because of peer pressure/influence.
Q-how many tattoos do you have on your body and do you do them yourself?
A– (chuckles) I can’t count, and I did most of them myself but some are by other friends that are tattooist too.
