Maija was born in country side of eastern Finland and started exploring different techniques of art at an early age. She got her first spark for tattoos at age 17 when she got her first tattoo, but she still stuck with more conventional art like painting.
Maija has a Bachelors degree in costume design, but she still yearned to do something even more creative, and in 2009 she found her true passion: tattooing. She started as apprentice in tattoo studio at Helsinki, and quickly developed her skills to a professional level. She gets inspired by the colors and shapes of nature, the play of light and shadow but the greatest inspiration comes from the work of great artists around the world.
Maija’s style is very versatile and she is always ready for a challenge. She loves doing color tattoos, detailed work and realism with a twist.
