Kristof Matthijs (BE), personal shopper, Antwerp



“My left arm is blank. I am patient. The tattoos I have on my right arm have been growing step by step. A few lines at first, then a few more lines…  And some more. I like the combination of black and red. And I love the Polynesian style. The faces are called tikis. Some have a symbolic meaning, but some are just beautiful and don’t mean anything deeper to me.


I’m pretty shy. I just moved to Antwerpen. I lived in an other city with my love. But after sixteen years we split up. Everything feels new now. Fresh. Anything is possible. Maybe I ll move to Barcelona in six months? Or to Ibiza?”
