A female tattoo artist’s take on how her business has come to benefit from the Azerbajiani mentality
Yana Lyubimenko decided to learn how to do tattoos when she became bored with graphic design and wanted to find something new.
How do Azerbaijanis feel about tattoos? The fact is that many girls would like to get a tattoo, but they don’t want to allow a male professional into their personal space.
As a result, 70 percent of Yana’s clients are women. Unlike men, who like ‘demonstrative’ tattoos on their shoulders, the girls of Baku prefer small tattoos on their wrists, and even more on their ribs.
People in Baku often complain about high prices, but according to Yana, prices for tattoos here are much lower than in Europe.
