Elena was born in Bologna, Italy. From a young age, Elena was captivated by tattoos and knew that tattooing was her dream. Growing up in a family of artists and artisans, it was only natural for her to pursue art school. After completing her education, she wasted no time and began tattooing her friends in 2009. A year later, she gained valuable experience working in a tattoo shop.
In 2014, she took a leap of faith, and opened her own studio in Bologna, named Old Bones Tattoo, which has been successfully operating for 10 years now. However, after this long journey, she felt the need for new inspiration, which has led her to Amsterdam and joining the Blue Blood Family.
Elena truly loves traditional and Japanese tattooing and enjoys studying the tools and techniques involved. For specific projects she even builds her own tattoo machines. In recent years she has ventured into Linocut, which has had a significant impact on her tattooing style.
In short, Elena has been tattooing for most of her life, and drawing for the rest of it!
